    I have been working at Ipreo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Executive team and MDs are universal approachable. Great strategy and leadership.
    New York office is a great place to work with non-stop energy.
    Most people seem happy to come to work every day.

    Cons

    Continued pace of growth makes it tough to find space in NY office.

    Pros

    client facing role, friendly office environment

    limited operation growth, under trained, under utilized, sometimes "analysis" felt forced

    Advice to Management

    Have a structure where you can grow based off of performance rather than time there

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

    Pros

    Smart people. Fast paced culture. Pockets of people in Raleigh working diligently to improve company brand and drive recognition and talent to Ipreo.

    Cons

    Benefits are below average.
    Parking assistance is provided but only a small portion.
    Lack of teamwork. Most departments have no clue or interactions with other departments. Feels like lots of silos.
    HR assistance to employees is below average.
    Lots of youth. Most people are right out of college so lack of senior mentors.
    High turnover.
    No swag (interns received an entire bag of Ipreo swag but long time employees have nothing with the Ipreo brand on it).
    No clear career path once you get to the Associate Director level. Not much more to move into after that.
    Lots of fear and uncertainty due to IHS Markit acquisition and the fact there will be lots of duplicate teams and roles after one combined company.

    I have been working at Ipreo full-time

    Pros

    Access to senior management at publicly traded companies

    A relatively young workforce means that you will be working with friends

    Company has taken steps to reduce turnover at junior levels

    Cons

    Lack of accountability at the senior level, analysts are blamed when things go wrong but there is no oversight to prevent this from happening

    Few transferable skills

    "Squeaky wheel gets the grease" mentality where outperforming colleagues are not rewarded equally

    No congruence between teams. What qualifies as an associate on one team could be a senior analyst on another

    Department head is out of touch with his employees. Manages with a sense of superiority

    I worked at Ipreo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    None that will provide information for you to join

    Cons

    - The post that are written that are “super excitable” over the top positivity, are written by staff and asked by some of the Resources team to submit these false comments. Would you want to work for a company that has to blind you with none truth for you to work for them ? Consider other options

    Advice to Management

    There isn’t Management

    No career path, very high turnover, lack of accountability, limited transferable skills, and very unprofessional managers.
    The tendency to favoritism in plain display leading to a very disconnected work atmosphere.
    Compensations below the average

    Advice to Management

    A lot needs to change in the team

    I worked at Ipreo full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Location is fun but expensive to park. Good coffee.

    Cons

    Few advancement opportunities. No transparency. Horrible benefits. No oversight for bad managers and issues don't get escalated or resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Hire the right people with experience rather than trying to low-ball everyone. Management training is a joke. Stop lying to candidates just to get them in the door. Hire some helpful HR employees. Stop trying to spread the HQ between offices.

    I have been working at Ipreo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are a lot of pros, but I think so much of it boils down to the people. Ipreo hires amazing, smart people and they put them in the right roles. Teams are supportive of each other and the culture shows that. The work is challenging and you are often pushed out of your comfort zone (which I definitely see as a pro), but it will lead to amazing growth and the company rewards for a job well done.

    Cons

    None yet that I've seen!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing as I think the company is heading in the right direction. Always make sure to listen to your employees and continue to trust in them.
