Great research experience, ZERO job security for newcomers and HR is awfulSenior Research AnalystFormer Employee, more than 1 yearTroy, MI
Worked on a specialized team with leadership that had 25+ years experience in their fields as researchers, it was inspiring to work with them Good benefits Good PTO package with lots of options for taking days off Competent management that valued autonomy and let me make my own decisions on projects, even asked for my advice
Very little job security from the company, they are huge and the second they are looking to cut, they'll do it quickly and with little empathy. Even if you and your manager have plans for your future. Technology is generally outdated, other companies are using tech that's years ahead of what Ipsos uses The company wants to pivot to consulting and strategy but at the end of the day, its assets are public opinion polling and surveys, so if that's not interesting to you, you'll get bored quickly HR is awful, they are clearly understaffed and have no leadership so trying to do anything with them is like pulling teeth. The company is not doing well. The BU I was in lost a HUGE account and entire teams were laid off. So they can say whatever they want, but when you're losing accounts, you're losing money.1

Innovation, healthiest of the large companies, leadership that is focused on a strong future.
I love Ipsos, no downside.

Great people to work with, helpful and collaborative. Good PTO and holiday time off. Can move up pretty quickly if on the right team and good at your job, though some teams seem to promote much slower than others. Hybrid environment where offices stayed open but you get to decide if you want to come in; negative to that is offices can feel empty almost all the time.
Job security was more important in the past and the company seemed to put a big emphasis on that. Since the new CEO came in about two years ago, I've heard of more layoffs than during my whole time at Ipsos. Moral is down and the company now has a strict no T&E policy unless specifically for a client, further distancing teams not in the same city. Work-life-balance can be horrible at times, or even throughout the entire year for some people, completely burning them out. Pay is also low compared to other companies and upper management doesn't seem to care. Seems like a lot of people have been quitting recently due to all of this and I know of many more who are actively trying to leave.3Ipsos Response2w
