    Time off benefits are really nice, promote from within, managers are hit or miss - some really good, some there to get a paycheck

    Cons

    Starting pay is low, company trying to consolidate and cross promote but nobody understands what's going on

    I have been working at Kantar Media full-time

    Pros

    About the only pro to this company is the flex-time for work hours where you can clock in between 6:30-9:30am

    Cons

    Where to begin! This company vastly underpays its employees, has major favoritism when distributing workload, is unbelievably disorganized and unproductive in management, and does very little to address needs and concerns of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Try listening to your employees and fixing basic problems they tell you about. Stop with the hours of pointless meetings that clearly don't do anything to help anything run better around the office.

    I worked at Kantar Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There's flex time which means you can come in between 6:30 and 9:30 without being late. They have a game room with a ping pong table, basketball mini game, pool table, and play station 4. You can take an hour lunch. They're really flexible with vacation time. It's a really comfortable place to work.

    Cons

    I struggle to think of any cons for working for this company except the starting pay was pretty bad.

    Advice to Management

    They're doing an amazing job. I couldn't give them advice on anything else to change.

    Pros

    Great people dedicated to doing a good job at this location. Smart and reliable. Low turnover with an emphasis on training and promoting from within.

    Cons

    The business unit in Minneapolis (Marx Media) would occasionally get lost in the shuffle of the larger company. Pay below industry standard.

    I worked at Kantar Media full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The benefits offered were great. The supervisors were very approachable and friendly. They typically promote from within.

    Cons

    The salary was low and they did not offer many ways to broaden your work experience. The nature of the work was strictly data entry.

    Advice to Management

    Offer workers more incentives to speed up the data entry. Give more opportunities for employees to stand out and get noticed.

    That the work was offshored to India.
