    Pros

    CEO, being a Global company gives you the opportunity to know new countries and consumer behaviours. People are great and is possible to growth in your career.

    Cons

    Company is growing and is having new types of projects, but the quantity of people working isn't changing! So we have less people and more clients, with thar, more workload.

    Great place to start and develop your career

    Pros

    The people are really friendly as is senior management. The MD sets a great tone and is one of the most approachable people in the business and you can tell he is genuine. Good training as a graduate and a clear mapped out development path. Industry leader in panel insights in FMCG so you'll be working with some top clients. The office environment is easy going and there's a strong identity. Commercially the business does well and looks set to continue in this fashion in the foreseeable future. There are some really great managers in the business and the FMCG products are as good as it gets in the continuous panel arena. Solid company benefits available once at a certain level. Training is really good, so you'll leave Worldpanel with some great sought after skills. Overall, you won't come across many companies like this one.

    Cons

    The office location isn't ideal. The pay scales need revamping. Pay bands are very much below the market average and the gap grows the further up the food chain you go. Pay is also inconsistent across teams and there's no clear guidance on what you can expect at each level. Movement to other Kantar agencies isn't really promoted as much as it should and movements to other teams within the company is promoted at the corporate level but still yet to be fluid as you'd like to see. Beyond the graduate academy set up, individual career development is more of an after thought for the business. Senior management not measured on staff development. Many managers are more than happy to lose good people as there is little appetite to retain someone in the wider business if they have outgrown their immediate role. Many roles are advertised but often it's already been decided who will get that role. If your business unit is growing and the unit leader likes you, your growth could be accommodated. If that's not the case, then you may struggle and a large part of this depends on luck as to which business unit you end up in or start in. Company perks are largely focussed around funding social nights out or free drinks but it is a poor long term incentive and feels very much like a cheap alternative to a real rewards structure as the novelty wears off after a few years of this. The graduate pay is pretty bad to begin with as well compared to London rates. Very hard to get up and running if you're coming to London and this is your first job. Many senior managers have gained management responsibilities through tenure and their own rises through the company and some are ill equipped to actually manage well. There are many great managers but it's open to luck. Business has tried to address this but the main focus is on the commercials, so things like this often take a back seat. Strong sentiment of secrecy creeping in. Elements of cliques coming in at high levels in the business where things are decided in an opaque manner and then communicated to the rest of the business. If you're in that crowd you'll do well but if you're not then you may find your career hits a ceiling. Office has a great atmosphere but at times it lacks a professional environment. Lots of office politics and gossip and 'inappropriate' behaviour between colleagues on a work night out is pretty much the norm, from very senior staff too, which I think sets a bad example and can create conflicts of interests if senior members engage in such behaviours with more junior staff. The company offers some good benefits but certain key elements only kick in at a certain level. For example the bonus scheme only applies to client managers and above with the same being true for health insurance, which will leave you feeling undervalued at certain levels. Kantar, part of WPP, the overarching brand in which Worldpanel sits has largely left it alone to operate as it has done but that is beginning to change, some of it for the good but in reality this can often have day to day implications on hiring policy, pay rises, promotion frameworks, equitable appraisals and incentive & bonus schemes. In terms of developing the product, the ideas coming out are good but are implemented at a very slow pace. Operationally the business is moving in a cost cutting direction or looking for 'efficiencies' and resource for developing products is always under severe strain. Other agencies are more driven in the pace at which they move.

    Honest Review

    Pros

    The people at Kantar Worlpanel are great. If you're looking for a fun, young culture then this could be a good fit. The grad scheme is really structured so you can plan how you will progress and they put a lot of effort into their training programme. Social events are brilliant and well organised.

    Cons

    Its not always easy to progress ahead of the curve. How quickly you can get promoted varies massively by team, as does the work-life balance. Coming in externally can be challenging because you have to get up to speed quicker than the grads with less training to help you do so. It can also be harder to make friends because most people hang out with their grad groups.

    Pros

    Learning and development - massive culture towards improving and developing your skills Responsibility - taking ownership of your own client base and seeing the relationship flourish Social/The People - some really great people at Kantar Varied work - some nature of reporting is constant, but beyond that adhoc requests and briefs will vary and constantly challenge your thinking Great teams - with numerous different teams there are areas for you to find what you're passionate in, I work in the fashion team and it's a great group of individuals, fascinating market to work on with a challenging and great to work with set of clients

    Cons

    Location - Hanger Lane isn't the best area, with not a huge range of cafe's/shops/restaurants around

    Pros

    The people are generally great and HR are always are thinking of ways to try and make it an engaging place to work. Flexibility and trust are the foundation here which i think make it an enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    Promotions feel like they are mainly based on an interview rather than performance in role which is a shame. In addition there isnt always space to progress as you get more senior and enough reward for work well done.
