  7. "I am a number"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Kantar full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance is good - people just turn up when they like and leave when they like really.

    Cons

    Statutory Redundancy, Maternity and Paternity. Enhanced Maternity kicks in after 2 years of employment. No bonus, minimal pension. Senior leadership are extremely disconnected from the rest of the business - for a company reliant on it's people it does not value you as an individual.

    I worked at Kantar part-time

    Pros

    -Good work-life balance, ability to take on hands-on tasks and approach new ideas to supervisors and forms of management. -There is a large amount of flexibility in your role as a research assistant and training is given from your first day.

    Cons

    -Pay could be a little more better, but bonuses have been given -It really does depend on how any survey interviews you get to stay contracted on the job -Are required to hit a minimum target to be employed there for a longer period

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

    Pros

    Centrally located, facilities are alright and work-life balance is OK.

    Cons

    I worked in the HRIS support team and never have I come across such a negative team environment with an absolutely biased direct management, who are also very tight with money. For such a small team of about a dozen employees, staff turnover is incredibly high - 4 resignations in the space of 1 month! The team's immediate leadership is very poor (condescending micro-managers who treat you like little children in school!), and this filters down into a negative impact on the attitudes of the team members. The pay levels are shocking - while a couple of the managers are over-paid for not actually doing much work, the majority of the staff are on extremely low wages. This is one of the tightest departments, with zero investment in training or career development for their employees. Fragmented team, lots of conflicts, in-fighting, politics and unfair, biased managers who give preferential treatment to their mates. Again most of the problems comes down to the extremely poor and low quality leadership of this HRIS team. The overall company is currently going through a re-structure and there has already been a lot of redundancies and voluntary resignations. There also has been pay freezes, promotion freezes and recruitment freezes this year due to poor company performance.
