    Outstanding team of talented people

    Pros

    I have been with IMsci for 16 years and many of my colleagues have had a similar long tenure with the company. In our industry, turnover is common and to have so many people on board for 10+ years is almost unheard of. The talented people, strong teamwork approach and great clients have kept me at IMsci and I look forward to many more years of exciting and challenging work.

    Cons

    We continue to seek well-qualified candidates, especially for our scientific team. The more hands we have on deck, the better we are able to meet the needs of our clients.

    Great people, antiquated process

    Pros

    Tightknit company, you get to know everyone. For the most part everyone is friendly. Office is in a great location in downtown stamford, walking distance to everything. Office hosted occasional happy hours and similar celebrations offering food & drinks. Kitchen is always stocked with snacks & drinks.

    Cons

    Small team, uneven workloads, long hours, expected to work overtime regularly. Promotions are hard to come by, didn't like their metrics for promotion opportunities/eligibility. Very set in their methods, hard to create change. Did not care for HR. Good stepping stone company, def not long term career choice.

    Stay far away

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Financially ok since part of a broader network

    Cons

    Very manipulative employer that makes it seem that they are growing and business is stable when their only client is fast leaving for other more innovative agencies that give them what they need. Management is disconnected with employees and puts burden of work on them. There is no diversity at this agency and minorities are seen as outsiders and treated differently

    Decent for experience

    Pros

    Good place to learn on the job and gain experience, especially if you are new to the industry. Some nice folks to work with. If they like you, they'll promote you and try to keep you around.

    Cons

    Turnover is high. Not a particularly high-powered place to work, but not the absolute worst either. Best to move on to a better company once you've gained enough experience.

    A great place to grow for those who work hard.

    Pros

    Hard work is recognized and appreciated. There is a strong support system for new employees and while the business is tough, all levels of staff recognize its complexity and are willing to help those who want to learn and develop themselves in this field. Work-life balance is important. Sometimes it can feel like there is no good time to take a break (or a day off), but most of the senior management respect that balance and will work with you to help keep the workflow moving by leaning on other team members while you are away. On the science side, there is an opportunity to work on diverse subject matter, and that helps keep the workload interesting. In the accounts department, there is a growing opportunity to build client relationships and work in a dynamic environment, so no two teams are identical.

    Cons

    There is a division between departments that could be alleviated with better communication across teams, and a respect for the workload at any given time. Sometimes the role of different team members is forgotten and lines are blurred with regards to who should take on different tasks, which can shift an uneven workload on certain people who would normally be working on something more important. Sometimes you need a thick skin to get through the work week--but on the upside, you're not alone.

    Pros

    Great benefits as part of WPP, interesting work in a variety of therapy areas, team that believes everyone should contribute equally and enthusiastically.

    Cons

    Stamford is kind of distant from the bright centers of the industry. Large organization sometimes makes leadership feel distant. Tech support can be really inconsistent.
