    A great place to solve the stickiest business questions of the leading brands

    Pros

    I've worked at Kantar since 2007 and love it. The variety of answering different business questions from our clients is what spurs me on mentally. I love getting to the root of the question to answer and then working out the most effective and efficient way to conduct research with consumers and shoppers to get to those answers. We have such a vast array of different methodologies at our disposal, there are very few questions that we can't answer in almost all countries in the world. If you want mental stimulation and the opportunity to work with a whole variety of different companies, Kantar is the place for you.

    Cons

    I personally have had a very strong career at Kantar changing roles and moving countries with opportunities to work in the UK, then China and now in the USA. I've been promoted a number of times and feel that my work is very valued. However I'd say that the formal career management isn't great - in my experience you have to ask for the roles you want and, if you're good at what you do, the company makes it happen. In fact I was able to create my current role from scratch as it previously didn't exist. So take control of your own career at Kantar and don't expect the next great role to be handed to you on a plate - you need to be proactive in making that happen.

    Pros

    Among agencies, it’s teams work very hard to support their clients. Management is also diligent in making Kantar a better place to work

    Cons

    Could do much more to be efficient. IT is very challenging to work with.

    Brilliant Minds, Golden Future

    Pros

    This is my second stint at Kantar. I spent six years in client services (client leadership) running a research team. I've now spent three years in a new role working across all of Kantar's solutions. Why I left? I wanted to try working in a start up in Silicon Valley. Why I came back? While I made decent money when we IPOd in Silicon Valley, the culture was really negative. When I came back to Kantar it was because of the people and culture. The people are genuinely curious and BRILLIANT. With a new CEO at the helm here in North American, I am more excited than ever to be a part of a golden future. Takeaway: People matter. Culture matters. Good work matters. Working with the worlds leading brands is a privilege. Most of the less than positive reviews for Kantar are by people who never worked anywhere else and didn't know how good they had it. If you want to work with brilliant minds, the best companies in the world, and shape a stronger company, consider Kantar.

    Cons

    If you've been here for 25 years and don't like change, don't come here. Change is constant. And that's how it should be. Technology and pace of change require it.
