Pros

As a first job, and in order to gain experience of the market research industry, Ipsos is not a bad option. There are interesting areas within the organisation, and some good staff.

Cons

There is a very poor work ethic within many departments, almost lethargic. It is very easy to slip into a comfort zone and cruise along without being challenged. Progression is rarely on merit, and is instead based primarily on the time one has been with the company.

Advice to Management

If you are going to employ bright graduates, make sure that you offer them challenging work, rather than basic, menial tasks, or they will become disillusioned.

    Pros

    High profile company, lots of exposure to different types of projects.

    Cons

    Erratic management and uneven cultures across the company as it is created from the acquisition of many smaller companies. Too much focus on the bottom line and not enough on quality creates a culture of stressed out employees, although some units are better than others, especially the ones that are in profitable, high margin areas (e.g. advertising tracking).

    Advice to Management

    Be human.
