    I have been working at Kantar full-time

    Pros

    The whole business from CEO down appear to be people focused and compared to other organisations in the market research industry this certainly seems to be backed up by actions. Learning and development is an important part of what they do, and the opportunities to work internationally are increasing, either on a short term or long term basis. Across the world over half the offices are covered by a Great Place to Work or Best Employers award so with that level of external recognition they must be doing something right.

    Cons

    Salaries are market competitive in majority of cases but need to keep a watch on this. Fast progression means on occasions management skills are learnt on the job rather than fully formed on promotion which can cause issues at times.

    I worked at Kantar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Opportunity to work autonomously, flexible working schedule/location freedom; good opportunities for newcomer to the industry to learn; lots of smart people

    Cons

    You will be overworked and likely underpaid; leadership in the West is similar to high school politics (you've got the "in" crowd, the "out" crowd); company doesn't value their smartest analysts; lack of opportunity to work on different solutions - you will do the same thing over and over again; no formal training currently in place - so its sink or swim; people are dropping like flies due to the resourcing issues - leadership literally can't hire people fast enough to replace the ones that are leaving.
