    I worked at Kantar Retail full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great, vibrant and intelligent people. Analysts are hard working and dedicated. Developers were smart and under appreciated. Pay and benefits were moderate.

    Cons

    C Level execs range from good to incompetent to just plain ambiguous. Consultant's egos were tricky sometimes - But most were smart and hard working. Didn't value the part of the organization that was behind the scenes.

    Advice to Management

    You are top heavy with C Level for such a small company. Look at the financials and see who could be cut from the payroll - and you still wouldn't miss a beat.

    I have been working at Kantar Retail full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    close to public transportation and shopping

    Cons

    An over-all inability of leaders to recognise employee disengagement, while they constantly reference a great company culture that doesn't exist. This kind of "leadership" creates a dead-end and hopelessly mediocre performance level, where you can only be a good as your manager ... and that isn't that good.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to see beyond yourselves. Excellence come from hiring good people and letting them do what they do best. Stop over-selling recruiting.

    I worked at Kantar Retail (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome benefits, great pay, interesting industry

    Cons

    Training was absolutely horrible and unorganized, management did not have clear communications and were also very unorganized

    Advice to Management

    If someone does something wrong during their training period, perhaps you should help correct a mistake instead of just letting the employee go. Especially after he was praised for his action by his immediate supervisor.

    Pros

    A really young office filled with really bright people who challenge you and put a lot of responsibility on you from the start

    Cons

    The work can be stressful sometimes. You have deadlines that you have to hit and sometimes that means staying late (although not often) and coworkers often lend a helping hand.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. The flat structure is great and the company is certainly headed in the right direction.
