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

    Pros

    Love the people I work with and opportunities to do different things and innovate. Not the same old desk job that I found in other research companies. We work hard but also have fun. This is the type of company that helps you learn and get places not just punch a clock (like other places do!).

    Cons

    Sometimes late hours but not all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep watching workload and keep bringing in new talent... love the ADP training program for new hires!!!

    Pros

    Remote work is a positive benefit, shows we are keeping up with the times and competition and makes other concerns bearable.

    Cons

    Management is not good. It used to be better then went downhill last 2-3 years. The unprofessionalism of some top people.

    Advice to Management

    Does anyone listen?

    I worked at Ipsos full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of young people and the work is cool!

    Cons

    Some of the managers care only about their next promotion and not the wellbeing of their staff.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t promote people simply because they do favors for you. This creates a toxic environment full of managers who aren’t equipped to manage entry level staff. It takes away the incentive for managers to train the entry level employees because they know that the success of their staff is not going to make or break their next promotion.

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

    Pros

    Interesting projects and opportunities to work across different specialties and categories. Local office culture is good, but partially due to camaraderie around the company's issues.

    Cons

    Lack of respect between employees, especially from Senior Management to all other levels. Lies about promotions, but that is typical in this industry. Extremely disorganized resourcing, causing team members to be taken on and off projects, with very few having the full history of a project, leading to confusion, missed objectives, and always trying to catch up.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in delivering quality analytics based on high quality data. If clients don't get value out of the deliverables they will not return.

    I worked at Ipsos full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked with a great group of intelligent people. Ipsos is so large, there are lots of great things going on there, but because it is so large, you can be very stuck in only your area.

    Cons

    Management cares about growth of junior staff and moving people up, but then one you are at the higher levels, they don't care much about development.

    Advice to Management

    Remember to help continue to grow employees in middle management positions.
