    I have been working at IMRB full-time

    Pros

    Great place to learn. Good starting salary.

    Cons

    No work-life balance. You have to stay in office for more than 12 hours, and still if your work is not up to the mark, you may have to stay longer. Poor incentives

    Advice to Management

    If you do not take care of your employees, your employees will find someone who does.

      I have been working at IMRB full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Good place to learn market research - or at least it used to be The IMRB brand name still carries some weight

      Cons

      Short-sighted senior management Poor work allocation No respect for personal lives of employees

      Advice to Management

      Not very sure as to why I am even writing this here. I'd be really surprised if anyone even cares. But at some point, the senior management needs to stop and take a look around them. IMRB used to be a place where one would go to learn research. It is fast becoming a "sales" company. Taken together with the high attrition rate at mid-level, things are not looking very good. Not a very good time to join the company.

      I have been working at IMRB full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Best place to learn the art or science of market research Experience to work with some biggest minds in the trade

      Cons

      The management should not be called management coz they don't know how to manage Employees are considered tools to achieve business numbers...at least treat them as resources No respect for employee..neither for their work life....people easily slogging 12 hrs everyday...and managers think that's great...productivity is high Another thing...management lacks spine when dealing with clients...

      Advice to Management

      They can't be advised...they are beyond repairs But if I have to advise....respect people....respect their life...don't force good employees to move out because of this...strategy is too short term... Imrb has a strong brand value....no need to sell your back to clients...have some self respect
