    I worked at Millward Brown full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone who works here is great at what they do. The environment was very supportive and collaborative and there was a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    There are no real cons that I can think of. The only thing is that it takes awhile to be promoted but hard work is still recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be to keep hiring talented people but keep personality in mind. Talent and intelligence can be a great asset to the team but if they team dynamic changes due to personality conflicts, it can affect everything.

    Pros

    Great location on the corner of Madison Square Park.

    Management here is really terrible and the company is trying to cut costs as they lose out to better run companies. HR is especially bad here, so don't bother going to them for anything.

    Bring in new people and get rid of existing staff.

    I worked at Millward Brown full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch on Wednesdays, free bagels on Mondays. Decent number of vacation days. Good NY location. They provide you with new equipment which is nice.

    Cons

    The amount of work is overwhelming, and manager's advice was "deal with it, that's how it is". You have to rely on other offices to do report templating for you, which significantly impacts timing for your own work because they are ALWAYS late. Team members are petty. Don't trust anyone. You will ALWAYS work 50, 60+ hours a week and it still won't be good enough. It is physically impossible to finish everything you need to in the time spans you have. Goal setting is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people and pay them overtime!!
