    I have been working at Kantar Worldpanel part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic place to work and develop your career in a growing and highly successful company. There are loads of opportunities both within Worldpanel and in the wider Kantar group. We work hard but have lots of fun and the culture is great!

    Cons

    Kantar Worldpanel is very a strong business; sometimes it's tough being part of larger company and not always having the freedom to do what we want.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to us and keeping us informed. Be as visible as you can across the whole business.

    Pros

    You can tell the management genuinely care about making this a great place for people to work. This is evident in the small things, such as free fruit delivered every day, to the big - such as the annual staff get together which is held every year to boost engagement and bring everyone up to speed on progress against business plans. I'm quite new to the company, but from what I can tell the culture is very egalitarian, with, for example, senior managers sitting out among the teams rather than hidden in offices. The company recently made it into the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to work for, which speaks volumes.

    Cons

    It's quite hard to get a handle on exactly what each team does, takes a lot of initiative on your own part to get out and meet people.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being accessible to staff and providing routes for them to feedback on their workloads, issues and how to make improvements.

    Pros

    Very comprehensive training/support programmes from Graduates right up to Directors - this is particularly beneficial for high performers who can be placed on 'fast track' programmes.

    A strong management team which has real ambition and vision- evidenced by the continued fast growth & success of the company over the last 10 years.

    A real feeling that the company values its employees and is prepared to invest in them to further their potential.

    Great opportunities to work around the world (whether temporarily or permanently)

    A great product that everyone believes in - a constant focus on quality and being the best helps drive employee belief in what they are doing.

    Very open senior management -approachable and prepared to listen and take on board feedback.

    Cons

    HR/management constantly coming up with new inventive ways to drive down/disguise wage deflation at a junior level. The benefits are very strong, but they don't pay London rents, and in the end that's what matters to employees starting their career.

    Kantar performance can often adversely impact the workings with KWP, regardless of KWP business performance e.g hiring freezes, travel bans.

    Advice to Management

    You are doing a great job in leading a successful company, with engaged employees, but don't forget starting salaries for junior members must keep track with real living costs...endless social events cannot make up for this. Be wary of too much politics creeping into the management culture -this has never been a problem in the past but is becoming apparent more recently.

    Pros

    I had a very positive recruitment experience. Kantar Worldpanel were very efficient in their response back at all stages. The staff I met at the assessment day were extremely personable and made me feel super relaxed. Furthermore, they were enthusiastic and were willing to answer any questions I had and you could tell all had a genuine passion for their work. I am very excited to start in September 2016.

    Cons

    Perhaps the location could be a little better?
    The salary appears to be lower than desired however performance reviews will dictate the salary package as time goes on
