Very Easy Interview
Research Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Ipsos in December 2011.

Negotiation Details – They matched by previous employers salary but refused to go above that.
Research Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Ipsos in July 2008.
Interview Details – Be prepared on your past experiences. They will come out of the blue to judge your confidence and ask questions on statistics in detail and you might have not imagined will come in front of you.
Research Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ipsos in July 2009.
Interview Details – Very informal. You will be asked to meeting with at least 2 people (3 maximum) on different occasion.
You will likely first meet with the MD who will tell you about the company in general, and gauage your "fit" with the company. Even though the talk seems to be very informat, he has very keen eye, and likely to see whehter you will fit with the organization.
If you pass, you will meet with your "next boss" who likely to be Research Director, and he/ she will interview you whehter you suit the position in his/ her team. You might meet with your "future colleague". and that should be all the process

Negotiation Details – They tend to give you the fair price. So not much room too negotiate after that. Maybe you get a bit more, but that's it.
