Hi Guys -

I am currently looking to make a career change from creative planning / strategy into market research (qualitative). I want a career that is more objective, concrete and empirical. Is market research the right place to look? If so, are there any tips for transitioning?

Hi, good Indian Restaurants in Austin recommendations. I like spicy food, I am new to Austin. Thanks!


What do you do when you follow a partner’s instructions to the T, but they end up criticizing your work product and by extension your competency? Do you politely push back or just take it?


Some agents are not sincere, and some houses have a negative record (this is what we call the incidents inside the homes), but many agents do not say it. I know it is about ethics, but at the same time, it should be punishable because you are deceiving a person to take advantage of the situation; it is a scam.

I am working at Kantar for over a year now, but feels like I am not getting much exposure. I am planning to shift from Kantar to Quamtum Consumer Solutions. Has anyone worked there or heard any reviews about the company?

Hello Everyone,

I have been working with
Kantar for 10 months now. The company has given me permanent work from home. Work is quite good and I am able to learn many things here. Also, my manager is very supportive and patient.
The only thing is about compensation, I have a package of 14 lpa with 6 YOE.
I'm thinking of switching to some company based in Pune.
What should I do?


Hi all,

What should be the salary expectation for a Manager in Research with 8YOE in India..

Hi Folks,
Having 3YoE in procurement research and now in a research team at an MBB, I feel I've reached plateau learning-wise. Have been focused in Chemical domain throughout.

I now intend to explore roles on client(Chemical Companies) side (like SCM, Planning, Strategy) but unsure how do I go about it.

What should be an ideal career roadmap for someone like me. How should I prepare/do in order to pivot towards those roles?

PS. I'm a BE Chemical Engineering, and no MBA.
