    Pros

    Casual work environment, flexible schedule, great team members, communication is fantastic from the bottom to the top, awesome management team. Starting salary and benefits are good.

    Cons

    Office management is poor -- things are done their way, or no way -- keep the office space unorganized. Other sectors within the building are not friendly. You have to work long hours, vacations, and holidays -- it is expected not just from your boss, but from our clients.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and see what is going on around you.

    Pros

    Working with many very bright and knowledgeable market researchers. Specialisms allow you to become an expert, though can be limiting depending on which you are in. Strong client roster, and industry name.

    Cons

    A lot of processes that have to take place given the company's size. Not very nimble. Business model/operational layers sometimes limits competitiveness of bids, and causes frustrations for researchers.

    Pros

    Ipsos has a great company culture. They strive for employee collaboration both in work and social aspects. They offer great benefits and having fun is an important part of their company culture. Working from home on an ad hoc basis is considered acceptable.

    Cons

    Things are frequently changing. Whether this is good or bad depends on how receptive you are to change. The changes they are making are always to be more innovative, modern and current though the steps to get there may sometimes be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    What was considered "confidential" information was sometimes very public. Limit sharing sensitive information only with those absolutely necessary until the appropriate time has come to share with a larger group or company as a whole.

    Pros

    I've seen lots of positive changes since I joined two years ago...industry is difficult which has an impact on morale and retention but Ipsos is improving the culture, doing more for employees and the Friday beer carts are the envy of all my friends!

    Cons

    Clients and their demands can be intense but at least I am learning and growing.

    Advice to Management

    Please invest more in your talent. We need to do more to keep the people who have been here 3-5 years.
