Relatively relaxed work environment encouraging interaction
It is a very diverse workplace. The open-floor plan at the office offers opportunity for interaction between the multiple divisions.

There are way to immerse oneself in the other division, with the possibility to pursue new opportunities within the company.
Pros
Free coffee, tea, occasionally snacks

totem pole
management vs employee, unfair benefits for union employees as compared to non union employees. An air of superiority from certain management toward most underlings. Often management would toss a bone like lunch maybe but when it came to true recognition or compensation all that mattered was whose "ring" you kissed.

Nothing
This company is not one that would recommend to anyone that is looking for a job. The rules do not apply to the management, the pay is not worth all the hours that you have to put in sometime. They act like the care about their employees but, they really don't. Would rather give staff picnics than raises. Some Supervisors want you to do their work that they are getting paid for and take the fall for the work that they did not do. If they are getting paid for the job, they should be completing it.
Pros
Have a lot of different functions for feeding staff
Cons
Should be paid more for the job that has to be completed.

Good work environment that gave me the flexibility I needed to raise my son with the option to work from home when he was sick or school was canceled for snow.

Quality of Work
I am impressed by the different types of work involved. However, more emphasis can be put into data engineering but senior management is taking steps.

Everyone is very productive, yet the atmosphere is super relaxed. Also, there's a lot of freedom to choose projects and groups within the company that you would like to be a part of. Good workers, not a lot of stress, and pretty awesome products!
Pros
remote work, conference attendances

Dying giant
Managed for benefit of stockholders rather than all stakeholders. Constant management changes and restructures coupled with vast ongoing layoffs keep the environment unstable and create a difficult environment in which to work. Profit is celebrated over quality of product.
Pros
Bagel mondays
Cons
No privacy in office

Poor management
Very poor management, lack of communication. I"be worked 13 years for this company and used to enjoy working there, until a new manager took over... then another... then another (5 times in the last 7 years). Our team ended up being dismantled without notice.
Pros

Stressful work environment
We were understaffed basically the entirety of my tenure at Kantar. There was weird upper-management politics. Employees were expected to cater to client's every whim and to work late hours to make things happen. Often had to do things that were outside of the job description.

Fun workplace with play room
Editing, making commercials ran for the right time and fixing time when it was incorrect. helped those that feel behind sending reports end of day. Most enjoyable part was the people I worked with, they made it fun and easy to work, management was very helpful when it came to those with kids and in school.

Nice balance between professional and friendly environment
A typical day at work started with answering emails. Then meetings to check in with different clients, also internal check in meetings. Finally working on a new power point presentation. Depending on the priority. Same as most media / marketing jobs. The hardest part was the hours. Sometimes the days in the office were too long. They don't encourage people to leave on time (when the ring bells) so you have to stay later whether or not you are done with your work for the day, otherwise it builds bad blood. However I made new friends which we still keep in touch until today and that is appreciated. It's a good work environment overall. At the office it felt balanced between professionalism and making new friends.

culture fail
Very heavy on middle management. Opportunities for advancement on the technical side are nil. There's a big company culture, and they're a decade behind on software development techniques and practices.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
career dead end, if you're an engineering type
