    Pros

    Good work / life balance PTO WFH ability Casual atmosphere

    Cons

    Management is self-important, detached, and contributes to general low morale of the office. Pay compared to industry standards and expectations are VERY low. Promotions and raises are scarce. High turn over due to low incentive. Feels like the blind leading the blind most days. No real career path, advancement is unlikely.

    Pros

    Fantastic learning experience and cultivation of individual strengths. Great people. Kantar and Millward Brown are leaders in the industry. Opportunity to work with big global brands and influence client campaigns and strategies.

    Cons

    Challenging to keep a competitive salary over years with the company. Every couple of years or so there are lots of cuts, layoffs, squeezing the remaining talent. At times can be difficult to maintain a healthy work/life balance.

    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.

    I worked at Millward Brown for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home, health benefits, modern office

    Cons

    I only worked at MB for under 2 years and had three different managers during that short time. The company culture is extremely metric driven which creates impersonal relationships with managers. If you are making your numbers, you will be forced to pick up the slack for those who aren't (aka work more hours). I'm not sure how anyone could work here and have a family with the lack of work life balance. Working past midnight is not uncommon and a 40 hr work week is viewed as not enough. The pay is far below average for the industry and not worth the stress. Lots of work going to offshore partner.
