    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...

    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.
