    I worked at IMRB full-time

    Pros

    Exciting projects, well known name, clients respect you. Pay is competitive than other Kantar agencies and also GfK/Nielsen/Ipsos

    Cons

    Bad managers are kept on because they are good contributors, toxic environment, backbiting and politics. Cultural expectation to work long hours.

    Advice to Management

    HR is toothless and does nothing about complaints. Recommend toxic managers to be removed

    I worked at IMRB full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Teaches you to make your way through the mess that is imrb

    Cons

    - No work life balance - No acknowledgement of the work that you have done or of the extra hours that you have put or the weekends that you have worked - Credit is often taken away by the seniors. Politics and favoritism at all the levels. -HR is redundant. Neither do they decide the increments nor do they keep the malpractices in check. -Woek on impossible deadlines as seniors have no say against the clients

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees as humans and not machines to dish out reports every other day

    I have been working at IMRB full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Used to be a big name in India but that's it.

    Cons

    You will work 3 times for half the pay in this company and then you will recieve a 300 rs hike/month. Strange how client expectations have been set to a most un-reasonable level and they treat Kantar employees like slaves. As a result, the company has to make do with being understuffed continuously as simply giving out freebies and heavily discounted prodcuts to keep the client happy has become a practice.

    Advice to Management

    No point in talking to the Indian upper management as they are the problem. If the international management sees this, may be it's time freshen things up and break out of the club culture at top management. It's the bottom level people that keeps your company going. Give some back. Dont be greedy.
