    I worked at Ipsos

    Pros

    Great co-workers and office culture. A lot of flexibility and opportunities to grow and develop. Get to be involved in all aspects of research and learn on the job. Base salary is good and benefits are great.

    Cons

    Fast-paced and stressful at times. A challenge to balance work and personal time.

    Would wish for more time on projects in order to invest more on analyzing results for clients

    I worked at Ipsos full-time

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible in telecommuting. Salary is decent.

    Cons

    Poor management. Too focused on sales instead of quality of work. Senior management is expected to sell and everyone below them is stuck with workloads that are hard to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    focus more on quality work instead of quantity.

    Pros

    Exciting and dynamic and slightly eccentric , i am so pleased i joined these people. After 5 years experience in a smaller agency this has been a revelation

    Cons

    Hard work, silos and some politics - but that is inevitable in a big organisation - THE CAN DO SPIRIT AND INTENSE CURIOSITY make up for any isses

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in training - it is great to be somewhere that really thinks about this

    I worked at Ipsos as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great young team of co-workers, international office, great supervisor. I have learn a lot, very supportive team. Great work-life balance, no bureaucracy and very approachable supervisor.

    Cons

    I can't say anything bad, was very satisfied. The training was given in form of webinars, which were optional to attend. I also had a chance to work not only in office, but in a field, which was a great experience as well.

    Pros

    Fast-moving dynamic atmosphere, people are always accessible and do not hide behind job grades and titles, encourages creativity, opportunities to take your career to follow your interests. Technical expertise, with people who are leaders in their field.

    Cons

    Very high work volume with lots of competing priorities and deadlines, meaning long hours, but that's part and parcel of being in this lively industry and part of the fun!

    Current Employee - Manager in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I started here at a very entry level and have been here for over 7 years now. I am now at an intermediate manager level and have been extremely satisfied with the vast portfolio of experience I have gained, in comparison to my colleagues that I graduated school with.

    Cons

    It is very fast-paced and things change almost on a minute to minute basis. It is not uncommon to work late and longer hours; however, they have programs to help with work/life balance such as summer hours, where we get to take every other Friday afternoon off, provide laptops to work from home, etc.

    Pros

    Broad roles, supportive management, open to innovation and challenge of the status quo. Inspiring senior management.

    Cons

    Career development is a little hit and miss. Internal networking between markets is tough, too much competition internally for revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create an open job site where people can post their CV's and skills to allow movement within Ipsos.
