    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Kantar Media full-time

    Pros

    -Work with Premiere Agencies and Brands - WFH Days/Flexible work hours - Downtown Chicago Office located in River North - Big Company, but feels like a family

    Cons

    - They do not pay their employees anywhere near industry standards or give them raises. Your salary is set to whatever it was once you are hired and it will never increase. - Products are very, very dated. Turnover from the Tech team prevents experienced programmers from being able to invest in product development. - For the AM role, it is the only position tied to the performance of the product. All products...

    Pros

    - The new work place Flexible and open seating makes each day pretty dynamic. With a view like the WTC, it's awesome to be able sit anywhere and enjoy it. The after-work or lunch options (if you don't mind paying) is also plentiful, making it just a great place to be after work. - The managers here are actually competent. You'll be able to actually get help from your managers and they (at least from what I've seen)...

    Cons

    - Far. WTC is a long commute, especially if you're not by the city. I think most commutes, unless you're close by, is about an hour. Additionally, the area is EXPENSIVE. Food options are limited if you want to have a sensibly priced lunch. - Hard to make friends. Unless you sit with your team all the time, the open seating concept makes it a little harder to create that camaraderie with coworkers, since they're always...

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Kantar Media full-time

    Pros

    The people are great and the parties are even better.

    A lot of work is expected of you for the work load. Many good workers eventually leave because the pay isn't that great.
