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

    Pros

    I was never too busy; co-workers were friendly; the New York office is nice and in a great location (Madison Sq Park); good quantitative experience; WPP Group is reputable in the industry

    Cons

    Management is somewhat management; lack of vision; not too much room for promotion / no clear exit strategy; I had no idea how I was doing/ what people thought of my work; WPP is a massive conglomerate and it's easy to get lost / fail to cooperate with other groups under the WPP umbrella

    Pros

    Relaxed but professional working environment, good benefits options, open attitude from management

    Cons

    Joined in a low level position and it became clear that I was performing better than some who had been with the company for >1 year. Was promised opportunities for development and promotion from my 2nd week, yet nothing materialised and I was continually told to keep waiting... Eventually I realised my skills would be better rewarded elsewhere, and upon handing in my notice my manager begged me to stay but without anything material to offer!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees: if the people who work the hardest are treated the same as those who barely perform, the stronger employees won't be around for very long...
