    I worked at Kantar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, during my time there most of my colleagues in the UK office were a joy to work with. The company is huge and full of talent so there's always someone you can track down who has the answer you need, always someone sharing something interesting and inspiring. UK senior leadership is transparent and accessible, I always felt they genuinely cared about me. A great place to learn in a junior role, looks great on your CV.

    Cons

    Slightly lower than average salaries. Let go of ~10% of more experienced (read: higher salaried) middle managers in late 2019 following cuts due to covid, replaced them with less experienced (read: lower salaried) staff. This is what happens at big corporations when the economy tanks: less flexibility so cuts are inevitable.

    I have been working at Kantar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, opportunities to do interesting things and get great exposure early on in your career, fantastic people. Met some friends for life. In better times good social culture and a fun office environment.

    Cons

    A year of pay and promotion freezes has left people frustrated. Mixed messages around progression (one minute you’re ready and the next you’re not) and a tendency for the company to shoe horn you into a role that suits their interests rather than yours. Despite promotion opportunities supposedly being ‘lifted’ it appears more difficult than ever. Promotions definitely don’t go to the most deserving and the company seem happy to let good people go with minimal fight meaning gaps everywhere and reliance on inexperienced staff. Commercial success based on luck is over-valued. The kudos given to people who’ve sold something from an opportunity falling into their laps is laughable.

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

    Pros

    People you work with day to day are lovely, great immediate team cultures, flexible working and understanding line managers, relatively easy to move roles internally

    Cons

    Org restructure never ends, too slow in terms of getting processes improved or decisions made, having less and less open culture overall and very top-down driven in recent months. There is bias towards client-facing teams (i.e. reward), and supporting roles feeling a bit neglected, not as recognise for their part.

    I worked at Kantar full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    my team was friendly. We had every other week off due to the night shift pattern (7:7) but in reality you need several of those days off just to recover.

    Cons

    night work is gruelling, I couldn't do it long-term
