No opinion of CEO

I worked at Ipsos full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

- Interesting work across a variety of subject areas and clients
- Lots of variety
- Opportunities to manage projects and work with people of different levels
- Senior colleagues were generally supportive in client meetings and set up
- Interesting lunchtime seminars
- Casual dress on Fridays and there used to be free fruit, but they took that away to save money

Cons

- It's hard to get promoted here unless you are a very outgoing person or friendly with the directors. Even if you work very hard and have no problems with your work, if you do not portray a confident and outgoing persona you will find it hard to progress.
- No formal off in lieu policy or other compensation for working late in the office or at focus groups, so it is down to individual managers' discretion as to whether or not you can come in late the next day etc.
- Time sheets must be filled in to account for everything you do.
- Too many computer systems, e.g. it can take ages just to get a quote for fieldwork.

Advice to Management

Think more about the steps people need to take for promotion, as it is unclear. People who are quieter but do a good job and develop good relationships with their clients should not be overlooked.
