    A truly diverse, flexible and friendly environment

    Pros

    Kantar Profiles Division - one of the best places to work. You get flexible working hours with 2 days work from home each weak and core hours from 10-4 (as long as you complete 7.5 hours a day). Depending on your client and responsibilities, you get a lot of flexibility in terms of how you work. Networking and taking initiatives is encouraged. You get regular feedback from your line manager, without any micro managing. Company consists of a mix of people from different cultures and background. Everybody is very welcoming, friendly and sensitive to other people's values and beliefs.

    Cons

    Needs a push towards use of new technology to manage teams and projects

    I wish I had left sooner

    Pros

    A fantastic introduction as graduate or junior researcher into the ‘ins and outs of MR’. Lots of on the job training. Very open to employees working remotely.

    Cons

    The company structure prevents new researchers learning the entire research process ... the business is based on a seller vs. do’er model. Unfortunately, sellers promise unrealistic timelines, expectations, etc. to clients and it’s up to the do’ers to ensure it happens. The company is run like a sweat-shop and you have zero work-life balance. Your entire world becomes so consumed by the job that you have NO life outside of work. Working evenings and checking email outside of business hours and weekend are all part of the job. There is no loyalty to long-term employees and the knowledge they bring to the business. I watched numerous valuable employees who had worked there for many years let go and tossed aside. As an employee you just a number at the end of the day … the company is too large to really care about the individual. Having being a loyal Kantar employee for almost 10 years, I eventually cracked under the pressure and had a nervous breakdown. I was given no support and was forced out of the company with zero compensation. My husband says it was the best thing that ever happened to me and I couldn’t agree more … I now have now regained my life and have never been happier! For any current employees considering leaving … the grass is indeed greener on the other side :)

    We feel disappointed that you felt unable to raise these concerns whilst you were employed with us. We take employee views and wellbeing very seriously and aim to foster a culture of transparency and openness whilst also rewarding and recognising our employees for their contribution. We have recently implemented a new structure which we believe is the right one in place for our business at this time and we work hard to ensure a balanced workload for all our employees. We understand that people may feel the need to leave if it’s not the right place for them but we have a strong record of loyalty with around 55% of our workforce having more than 5 years service which is also affirmed by previous employees returning to work with us. We pride ourselves on the great culture and community we have built and strive to maintain and this isacknowledged and recognised by us making The Sunday Times Top 100 list of Best Companies to work for the past 3 years.
