    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IMRB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is one of the well known research companies to work with in India. Helps you learn about the industry

    Cons

    No work-life balance. Work from home policy is also not very effective. There is lot of internal politics and top management can be very intrusive in your personal lives. I have seen people crying due to demoralizing outbursts from the top management. Majority of the employees leave within a year or two which limits the expertise required to guide new employees.

    Advice to Management

    Understand the old ways of working is not applicable in changing job environment. Treating people with respect is a strong requirement in today's world.

    I have been working at IMRB full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get a good amt of hols, but most of the times you cannot take it as you always have some work through which you are nt even learnin anythin

    Cons

    People say that its a brand and you will learn a lot: What I have noticed is , you are always overshadowed by senior management No new learning No new ideas are implemented You come to IMRB you are actually taking many steps backward in your career, even if you know something, your seniors would never accept and keep their big egos in front of you.

    Advice to Management

    Please hir some good people at senior level
