    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at IMRB full-time

    Pros

    Immense scope for learning. This is the university of market research in India. It is THE company to start with if you are interested in market research as a career. Exposure to various categories of FMCG research & a wide range of cutting edge research methodologies is a major plus point. Also, getting to work with the people who developed those methodologies is an added kick.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work-life balance. Extreme work pressure exists almost continuously.

    Advice to Management

    Put the right people in the right places or great talent will keep moving elsewhere. Leadership & workflow planning is a weakness for the organisation which is driven largely by eccentric nerds.
