    I worked at Kantar Worldpanel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Social Side
    Really good training (although they changed the structure which made it much worse)
    Good exposure
    Friendly people
    Interesting day to day role
    You are treated and taken care of very well

    Cons

    Pay isn't very good
    Promotion structure is fake, they promote who they want, not who does well in assessments
    Outsourcing departments such as Finance, HR, L&D is making the company worse
    Office location in Hanger Lane

    Advice to Management

    The Assessment programme needs to be improved. More weighting on day to day role is needed - presentation and data tests should be just to work out any knowledge gaps or improvement issues.

    Pros

    Very team/ client centric, learning is really fast tracked. Very standardized and organized in terms of milestones and means to learn.

    Cons

    Long hours can be expected especially from tough clients. Need to be firm and always in line with manager in terms of client deliverables.

    Advice to Management

    Clear pathfinder for all executives even mid managers for guidance in moving up the ladder

    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.

    Advice to Management

    We need more people to work in the company, or a strong investment in automatization to have more time to increase our personal life quality.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to develop yourself as long as you wish to do so - those who seek responsibility and client facing interactions early on are often supported to achieve this. A dynamic and enthusiastic place to work in.

    Cons

    As with all large organisations, some processes are less transparent and flexible. This is particularly relevant to moving roles within the business and career progression, while both can be facilitated, the processes could be made easier and clearer for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Celebrate your loyal and capable workers (plenty of those at Kantar Worldpanel) and make sure you help them cascade their enthusiasm down to the rest of the business.

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

    Pros

    Friendly people, great office, interesting product, lots of opportunities for development and internal movement/progression.

    Cons

    Not the most competitive pay (however many other non-monetary benefits that make up for it).

    A successful business that celebrates and recognizes individual and collective achievements. Open and trusting working environment. Strong graduate development program. Lots of development opportunities (and ways to change the direction of your career) and a good pace of progression available. Global opportunities.

    Cons

    Location (but compensated for by much more fun interior than exterior!).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to everyone and act on feedback.

    Pros

    Good culture, family focused, flexible and a successful leadership team who try their best to put people first.

    Cons

    Salaries may be lower than other places but the culture and other benefits make up for the slightly lower salary. Many people come back once they realise that it is a good place to work. Location is not great but office itself is nice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going with the good stuff and keep investing in people and salaries.
