    I have been working at Millward Brown full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people.

    Social events. We had an annual talent competition, which was popular and well-organised. This has now been cancelled.

    Flexible hours. Start between 8:30 and 9:30, the leave between 17:00 and 18:00 as appropriate. i.e. If you arrive at 9:00, you would go at 17:30. In general, this can be expanded further for parents.

    On-site canteen. Variety of meals, plenty of seating, themed days, Christmas menu, hot drinks selection.

    Meaningless business-speak is thankfully quite rare.

    Cons

    I've had to deal with senior-level employees that wanted to knowingly send out wrong numbers to clients. On one occasion this was because we had sent out so much wrong data to a client, that the senior member of the team now wanted to replicate wrong data as an attempt to cover up previous mistakes. I have refused all these requests and always informed the management.

    Other department members have been taken away and told they have not been working enough overtime.

    Heavy crack-down on people arriving late. Several people have got in trouble for being one minute late. One employee was spoken to by HR, despite being less than five minutes late.

    Open plan office, usually with about a hundred people per room. Not an ideal environment for people that can get stressed or need peace.

    Several years have had no salary reviews company-wide. That includes this year (2014).

    The office will be moving.

    Constant group of employees smoking at the front of the building. Not a great image for clients.

    Any notable decision has to go through many people, which massively slows down the decision making process. Decisions are frequently made by people that are completely detached from the consequences and have minimal knowledge of the situation.

    Use of technology feels a long way behind our competitors.

    Progression can be based on tiny things. If I massively improve the work that I do for 95% of my job, this will have no effect. I need to improve the 5% part. The company is offering me no help to improve that part.

    Newsletters have to go through multiple members of management for censorship.

    High staff turnover in project management and the client-facing department. Consequently there's always a large amount of inexperienced people and it can be difficult to form a strong team. Having projects run by new people that lack confidence and experience often leads to problems.

    Company satisfaction survey results are awful and have decreased again. Despite this, the management keep entering our company into The Times' "Best Companies to work for" competition. Unsurprisingly, we've never made it into the top 100.

    Increasingly, the data processing work is being off-shored, which means lower quality and presumably will lead to redundancies here.

    Company targets are constantly being missed. By a long way.

    There was a large company restructure, which many people disliked. This led to a lot of people leaving.

    Job titles in some departments change frequently. Job titles in other departments are words that have no meaning. For example, "Data Processing Specialists" do not need to specialise in anything.

    In Data Processing the staff turnover is extremely minimal. Consequently the highest members of staff tend to be highest due to length of service and not skill. This means the more advanced tasks are often given to people with mid-level jobs, rather than higher-level jobs.

    We are constantly losing clients. The amount of new work coming in is significantly less than the amount we have lost.
