It is a good work environment, but the work/life balance never happens - you are always working.

I have been working at Ipsos full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The employees (not management) support each other a lot. We work together to solve problems and spread out the work when it is overwhelming.

Cons

Management has no idea what is going on at the lower levels. They don't understand how hard we are working, how long things actually take and why we, like everyone else, need to actually follow processes that have been set in place. Everyone at the lower levels is stressed and frustrated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a lot of work and not enough employees on the team to cover the workload. We work long hours and the work/life balance is very skewed. People are very unhappy. Mistakes are being made because of the work overload, pressure and lack of support. Once mistakes are made, we are reprimanded harshly for making them. No one is trying to find the root of the issue.

    Large bureaucratic research firm, good at scaling basic research globally but not much beyond that.
