    Pros

    I had a fulfilled period of time in Kantar Worldpanel Vietnam as a Marketing Trainee. Everybody in the company always willing to share, help and support you.

    It's not easy to have an official position in Marketing team, so I had to leave in regret.

    Work is dull, stuck in market research and clients run the show.

    I worked at Kantar Worldpanel as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, fun events, young employees, fairly interesting product and data. Office design is also very start-up like (beanbags, table football, lots of colours). Everyone is very understanding and relaxed which makes it a very enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    Not a great office location (quite far out to the west of London). Also opportunities for vertical career progression can be limited in some areas (though not all), particularly in Operations.

    Advice to Management

    Communication with employees is particularly important and in some areas this can be fairly lacking. SMT is generally starting to be more open with other employees though which is good.

    -You really either like it or you don't
    -Work can seem unstimulating at times
    -Quite a high staff turnover

    Come ups with a strategy to actually keep staff in the business for longer

    Pros

    Very social, great training scheme, high level of responsibility at a junior level. Hard working people dedicated to high standards of client servicing.

    Cons

    High churn of employees meant gaps in team that were not quickly filled. Poor bonus scheme compared to contemporaries. Senior management often not transparent with company/team changes wh8ch could be frustrating.

    Pros

    Clear promotion path, intelligent and nice colleagues, and supportive training. Great place to work!

    Cons

    Huge workload, if no teammates to share, it would be horrible, especially for small or medium size clients, since there are usually 2+ ppl serving the "Big Client".

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to subordinates' workloads, don't use up the "talents".
