    I worked at Kantar Media full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some flexibility on working hours; able to miss peak rush hour which is a godsend when one needs to trek to Hangar Lane and back every day!

    Cons

    Very little support or collaboration. As a newbie in an unfamiliar domain, I got the impression that my Technical Lead was just as clueless as myself regarding his understanding some the fundamental concepts within our business domain but felt ashamed to admit this and/or direct me elsewhere for guidance. Very much a 'do as I say, don't ask questions' and 'just get it done' culture. Mamagers will not give... constructive feedback outside of the formal HR-led appraisal/probation review process, so based on my experience it's best to be prepared for a shock when this does happen!

    Advice to Management

    The board is keen to place collaboration as a core business value, so I'd suggest middle management/technical leads take this on board instead of running their own little empires.
