      Don't join your life will be ruined

      Pros

      Good research knowledge If you are having medical problem the management will be very cooperative

      Cons

      Late nights (12 hours is considered to be normal working hour, things like it's not late night as it is not even 10 PM is quite common narrative, if you have deliverable working hour of 15 hours is quite normal ) Exploitation Working weekends (out of 52 weekends at least half will be working) Crazy work life balance (you might be going to house at 11 PM when you manager might call you and ask you to come back to office, most of the time weekends are considered to be working even with out asking) For 3 months or more you will not get any leaves or holidays or weekends and then when you will ask for leaves your request will be rejected by giving logic like someone is already on leave so in 8-9 months only 10-15 teams can take leave, which is inadequate for other team members Time for family and loved ones are considered to be not-productive No intention to change ('It is going on for 35 years so it will go on' is a common narrative here) Glorification of mental and physical fatigue If you are in domestic team, crazy dress code rule

      Average Work but very less employee centric company

      Pros

      -All part of the salary is fixed (However you will be getting a penny) -Top clients -Good learning part

      Cons

      Company is worst when it comes to employee-centric things like Compensation, salary hikes, work culture. Average medical policy and low standard company, which takes work from an employee till its last working day also. Company management just wanted to secure their money and job, they don't give attention to what is happing to employees, they just announced salary cuts and told to work 4days a week. But in reality employees were working 6 days a week and 12-15 hrs a day. -In the pandemic, they had cut salaries, no promotion hike/bonus for a complete year, no support for WFH setup. - you will discover worst work life balance with very less facilities

      Best place for kick-starting your career as a Researcher

      Pros

      Diversity of Work, Client Exposure is way better than other agencies, Team Bonding and a positive Work Culture, If you are looking to learn the best research from the best people in Industry then Kantar is the right place in India. Merit is above office politics unlike some other leading agencies. Kantar is also respected by the clients in terms of Quality of work done here.

      Cons

      Compensation is average, Working hours can be stretchy and if you are just looking to pass your time and hope the paycheck keeps coming every month - please go to some other place. Kantar is a place for passionate people who are willing to work hard and be the best. I would say Work-life balance is not the best but the opportunities are challenging and meaningful.
