    An interesting and rewarding contract position.

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    Current Employee - Regional Coordinator in Manchester, NH
    Current Employee - Regional Coordinator in Manchester, NH

    I have been working at Ipsos as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interaction was facilitated through email, phone, and Hipchat. For the most part, the people I worked with were professional. Suggestions based on my expertise were incorporated into the project.

    Cons

    A few last minute additions to the upper level administrative hierarchy were very ineffective. They had some experience in earlier projects but it did not translate to the current project. They never did get up to speed. Also, In some instances communication broke down with the lack of response.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in people with expertise early in the project.

    Good and Ethical Company With Large-Company Issues

    Current Employee - Management
    Current Employee - Management

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, supportive atmosphere, and a positive, ethical, fair place to work. Great benefits package and management tries hard to always do the right thing. A great reputation and a lot of really bright, curious and dedicated people. Minimal political issues, no toxic personalities. Wonderful from these perspectives.

    Cons

    Has some large company maladies: lots of red tape, processes and procedures which act to insure quality, but can be frustrating if you are used to a more entrepreneurial culture. Pockets of 'rebellious' people help to counter that, so it depends on the unit and the hiring manager's bent.

    Pros

    The client centric atmosphere is exciting. The firm has numerous resources and trainings and coworkers are friendly and willing to assist.

    Cons

    Internal shifts and restructuring complicates management teams and growth potential. The merger with Synovate resulted in numerous complications and could have been handled better. Moral was low for over a year due to layoffs and lack of job security. The wages are low compared to other firms in the industry.
