    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

    Free fruit
    Breakfast on Friday
    OK office environment

    Cons

    Multiple layers of senior management whom all appear to be trying to carry out the same task
    Massive duplication of work and effort in keeping all of these different levels informed of progress
    Inefficient systems, failing Finance and Reporting offshoring is left for the Client Service teams to pick up the pieces when things go wrong, many promises from the multiple layers of management that "things will get better" but they haven't in two years
    Business is more interested in holding multiple internal meetings so as many people as possible can claim to be involved, however in reality the majority of those attending these meetings will actively avoid actually seeing a client
