    I have been working at Ipsos full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent training on solutions and market research in general.
    ASI has strong equity among clients and has good tracking solutions.
    The senior leadership team is passionate about advertising research and leads the market in innovation in this field.
    Pays well and has good benefits relative to other research agencies

    Cons

    The WBSL's operate like silos - little interaction between groups. Cross country and cross WBSL opportunities are small and not encouraged. The organization structure runs on strong hierarchies and is quite political - a lot of what you achieve depends on who likes you among the senior team. Given this reliance on senior management, career progression paths are not defined clearly in all markets

    Advice to Management

    More focus on in market operations and opportunities for middle management to rise


  2. "A thin red line between enthusiasm and frustration, overall go for it"

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place for your first job, if you are still student or fresh graduate.
    Rich multicultural environment, interesting projects and opportunities.
    Nice work environment.
    Very young teams, average age less than 30.

    Cons

    Miserable salary for first 12 months. Mediocre for 13-36 months.
    Enormous workload. If you care what you do, expect 9-10 hours average working day.
    The applications and systems have very poor performance and waste more of you time.
    20%+ per year employee loss, putting more stress on those left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the cuts. The company is running incredible profit but you keep cutting costs which are hurting employees that are the backbone of the company based on the job profile. An experienced employee can earn you in one lucky day more than you are trying to cut in a year from him.
    Introduce any kind of rewards based on achievements. At this moment there is no difference between people, except for length of employment. People that have great results have the same incentives with people that just kill time.
