Good job if you are self sufficient and like managing your own time. Work can be cancelled at short notice. All you need is a car broadband and the confidence to knock on strangers doors.

Pros

Flexibility

Cons

Working evenings and weekends often in poor weather

Well past its shining days

KMB has around 30 employees, including the Client service and support functions. It was part of Global brand Millward Brown. MB believed in hiring the best people, provide best work environment and give best salaries. And thus has been able to provide best work to clients and charge a premium. Things started to fall apart after practically merger of all Kantar companies, namely TNS, MB and others worldwide In MENA region, TNS CEO is tasked to lead the group. Interestingly, TNS believed in hiring average people at lowest salary, winning projects through minimal pricing and making profit through volume game by distorting work-life balance of employees. Not surprisingly, Millward Brown is being forced to follow TNS model. No prizes to guess what is happening at Millward Brown now.

Pros

Nice office location (till mid 2018)

Cons

The list is quite big, I can say

No growth culture

Not worth the experience. Management has restricted thinking. Want to get work done from people but not interested in appreciating. Well focused on clients.

A serious work place

9 hours and above duty. I learned the courier process, ticketing process, visa processing. Management is ok, as i observed for a year their not listen for what employee is asking. My co workers are busy in their projects Is when you can't answer some questions that you're not responsible too. And if your line manager is not working with you and doesn't know how is the role of being leader. When they're is outing

Pros

Free Meal

Cons

Long hours

I have started the operations of Firefly in MENA region. It is very challenging to start a department from scratch and build up the team as well as the client base. However, I enjoy challenges and I was successful in establishing Firefly as a strong competitor in the market.

Pros

Independance and the challange to start something new

Cons

Abscence of internal field departement
