    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Kantar Media full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people for the most part are smart, the content can be interesting. They'll let you do things outside your scope, just don't think you'll get more than a pat on the back. Flexible work schedules and environment helps with work/life balance.

    Cons

    You will get paid so little, you start to question your own value. No real growth or opportunity one you're there. They tell you you're valued, but with practically no salary increase over several years, you stop believing their assessment.

    Former Employee - Assign Detail Product Specialist, II in Chesapeake, VA

    I worked at Kantar Media full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours, relaxed atmosphere, and great for high school students just graduating and entering the first year of college.

    Cons

    Managers were not always confidential if something went on with an employee. There is not a huge opportunity for growth (promotion wise) and there are little to no raises. Lay offs are once a year, whether its a temp or permanent employee.

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

    Pros

    Flexible start times each day between 6:30-9:30am

    Cons

    The pay is far less than the workload they put on you. Don't expect to get a clear answer from management regarding anything. Additionally, the management in general are beyond incompetent, and you will always be told they don't know, or they're not the right person to talk to, etc. The buck is always being passed around and no one has the courage in management to own responsibility for anything. They've been outsourcing to India and downsizing a lot over the last 6 months, so don't be surprised if you're let go without warning.
