    I worked at MMR Research Worldwide full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Successful, team-oriented, satisfying. MMR is a great place to work and I'm happy to have some great memories. Talented people in all departments, and global opportunities starting to become available for those who want this, at all levels.

    Cons

    It's not for everyone and be prepared for hard work and some stressful times by virtue of the market research agency world, just like all MMR's competitors. But you're supported by a strong team who do care about you. You are in it together.

    Advice to Management

    Be brave. Market conditions are dynamic and challenging. There will be constant change. Continue to stand for what makes MMR different.

    I worked at MMR Research Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    People-orientated. Values the voice of every employee. Great work ethic and culture which stretches across all departments. Variety in day to day work and plenty of chances to take on responsibility from early on in career

    Cons

    Management team are not well equipped to drive the business forwards. A real lack of organisation and the ability to finish things off, no matter how fundamental to the company's progress. Pay grades are very poor, especially for London/Oxford offices. Standard poor work-life balance as comes with any market research agency

    Advice to Management

    The value placed on people is good but rapidly diminishing with poor remuneration and benefits. Somebody needs to take the helm and drive things forward in a professional, methodical, impactful manner - unlikely to be someone currently at the company
