I've worked at Kantar since 2007 and love it. The variety of answering different business questions from our clients is what spurs me on mentally. I love getting to the root of the question to answer and then working out the most effective and efficient way to conduct research with consumers and shoppers to get to those answers. We have such a vast array of different methodologies at our disposal, there are very few questions that we can't answer in almost all countries in the world. If you want mental stimulation and the opportunity to work with a whole variety of different companies, Kantar is the place for you.
I personally have had a very strong career at Kantar changing roles and moving countries with opportunities to work in the UK, then China and now in the USA. I've been promoted a number of times and feel that my work is very valued. However I'd say that the formal career management isn't great - in my experience you have to ask for the roles you want and, if you're good at what you do, the company makes it happen. In fact I was able to create my current role from scratch as it previously didn't exist. So take control of your own career at Kantar and don't expect the next great role to be handed to you on a plate - you need to be proactive in making that happen.
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience of working at Kantar, we appreciate your feedback and contributions to Kantar.

I love the team I work on and they allow me to flex-up and take on more ownership. The people at my level are young, and fun and it leads to a great culture. I've been able to learn a lot and have developed very quickly here.
The main issue is compensation. Compared to other firms, Kantar is very weak in terms of being able to offer competitive salaries, bonuses, and benefits. Work-life balance can be a drag at times (on busy weeks I'll work ~50 hours), but generally, it's not so bad as long as you're mentally prepared for it.Continue reading
