    I have been working at Kantar Worldpanel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Kantar Worldpanel is great for its people. Everyone is super friendly, supportive and helpful and pretty quickly your colleagues become friends! The social scene is amazing, getting the company together to celebrate success and reward employees from drinks on a Friday to street food trucks at lunch time. Best place I've worked at!

    Cons

    The only con would be the location in Hanger Lane, but once you're in the office you forget where you are as the interior is so fun!

    I have been working at Kantar Worldpanel full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have flexibility when I need it to work around family. I'm happy with how my role fits in. I've not had any problems with the business

    Cons

    I'd love to be a bit more flexible.. so more working from home or longer hours one day and either a 4 day week or shorter hours one day

    I have been working at Kantar Worldpanel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very open and Friendly culture.

    Social events highly encouraged.

    Not a high stress environment to work in; staff are actively discouraged from staying late and over working themselves.

    A lot of energy put in to training staff, especially new grads.

    Lots of opportunities to develop skills and demonstrate worth.

    The MD and board are very transparent and open to feedback

    Cons

    The pay and benefits could be a better, especially with cuts to social budgets in the later half of 2018.

    Most staff are young and relatively fresh out of uni (I’d estimate at least half the staff graduated within the last 5 years), which leads to a fun environment to work in but can sometimes lead to a lack of professionalism

    Advice to Management

    Pay me more

    Pros

    Good work environment, interesting work

    Cons

    Have removed incentives for working hard, no clear progression path which results in a lot of junior staff members leaving

    Advice to Management

    A focus on valuing junior members of staff is needed to maintain stability and ensure teams aren't left stretched with too few members

    I worked at Kantar Worldpanel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    High focus on employee well-being. Great work/life balance. Stress free environment.

    Cons

    Low pay. Bad bonus scheme. Organisation so large bureaucracy is almost crippling.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on measurable real objectives that are not subjective and based on your own perception of employees. Address the somewhat elitist attitudes of some members of the SMT.

    Pros

    Relaxed but professional working environment, good benefits options, open attitude from management

    Cons

    Joined in a low level position and it became clear that I was performing better than some who had been with the company for >1 year. Was promised opportunities for development and promotion from my 2nd week, yet nothing materialised and I was continually told to keep waiting... Eventually I realised my skills would be better rewarded elsewhere, and upon handing in my notice my manager begged me to stay but without anything material to offer!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees: if the people who work the hardest are treated the same as those who barely perform, the stronger employees won't be around for very long...

    Pros

    Fantastic team, really well structured career progression from graduate to manager, good company perks and engagement to look after staff

    Salary could be improved, and the promotion structure and path after Client Manager needs to be addressed to make it clearer for staff.
