    Manager not cooperative and not knowledgeable enough to solve queries of recruits,authorative nature of manager.No special reasons to work here If you work for an IT firm chances are you will get higher compensation after 2 years but if you work for market research there is no future growth in IMRB AMA its stagnant.

    Change attitude of group managers. Get them to learn something so people will respect them.

    Pros

    The company is huge in the Market Research field.

    Cons

    Bad Management, a lot of politics(internally), no growth at all, minimum incentives, difficult to survive for freshers. No team leader wants you to stay and grow except a few. The overall environment of most of the teams is exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    there should be someone to hear the problems of new joiners i.e freshers. Need to give fresh blood a chance to stay they've got a lot of energy. Lower management is not helping new people at all.

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

      Pros

      1- Legacy name. Anyone who understands anything about branding understands how difficult it is to achieve name recall. IMRB has a 45+ yr old history, so yes it is rightly called the University of Market Research in India. Thats a big plus in Market Research, an easy field to get into and frightfully competitive too, if you've seen agencies trying to make a name. Often one doesn't have to 'pitch' to clients unlike...

      Cons

      1- Its an old setup, so the biggest problem is moving across organizational divisions. So, if you're in Quantitative Research, and wish to move to Qualitative, OR, if you wish to move to Brand from Social Research or Industrial Research, these moves are quite difficult. So, you get stuck for quite sometime, i.e., a longish time, within the same Division, and beyond a point the work becomes repetitive, boring and uninspiring....

      Advice to Management

      For people to stay, improve pay, because the work conditions aren't better or worse than elsewhere in the private sector.
