    Interview

    You will be asked to come in for a series of interviews--first with senior management and then with peers or co-workers. After the interview process you'll be asked to complete a test of varying level of difficulty. It's usually straightforward. They look for grammar and insight, so brush up on reading your quant numbers.

    Negotiation

    Simple--seeing as how I was already employed in the company.

    Research Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ipsos (Chicago, IL) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Pretty easy. No background checks or tests. I would say it's one of the least rigorous interview process I've done. Everyone was very nice and interesting to speak with.

    Negotiation

    They matched by previous employers salary but refused to go above that.

    Research Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ipsos (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Invitation to 10 min phone interview and 1hr in-person at the same time. Update a powerpoint report given a data table within 1hr at home.

    Phone interview was typical, going over experience, salary expectations

    In-person interview was strange; panel interview with the hiring manager and a VP. Talked more negatively about the role than positively, highlighted mundane things about working there as if that separated them from the crowd. Scripted questions. One interviewer looked very unenthusiastic, unfriendly, distracted, and like they really didn't want to be there. By the end I was sure I wouldn't want the position or to work there.

    Research Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bangkok (Thailand)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ipsos (Bangkok (Thailand)) in July 2009.

    Interview

    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

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    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.
