    Current Employee - Senior Research Analyst in New York, NY

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Kantar Media full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A stable employer with generous benefits, competitive salaries and telework options. Supervisors macro manage- trusting you to meet or exceed client expectations with timely and accurate work.

    Cons

    This macro managing can become neglect. They don't offer training or new opportunities to advance in your career and increase your professional profile. Pointing this out can lead to bewilderment from mgmt.

    Advice to Management

    Spend money to train your people and pay for professional development opportunities. When someone asks for an opportunity, at little or no cost to you, grant it- reward ambition and audacity. They tend to be the high performers.

    I have been working at Kantar Media full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great benefits provided with a good focus on work life balance. The work can be monotonous but the environment is structured to alleviate that.

    Cons

    The monotony of the work along with the feeling that issues just aren't ever resolved. Not much to complain about.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kantar Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing good came out out my time in this terrible place, only the few good friendships I made.

    Cons

    Terrible management with no "peoples/human skills". Bullying at the workplace with no action from HR. Extremely poor work-life balance with really long hours and zero recognition of your hard work and commitment. No training. No career progression. Terrible pay. Almost non-existent support from team leaders when delivering the work. Zero company culture or values. Literally the worst place I have ever worked at. If... you can avoid it, do yourself a favour and do not even consider working there.
