      Pros

      Believe it or not I have been associated with secret shopping since 1976. I have mostly worked with excellent companies and at this point, Ipsos has always come through with answers to questions, payments, and feedback. Recently I have done several shops for them that are in small towns where it is often hard to find shoppers. They have been considerate to my time frames and compensated me well for the distances I have gone.

      Cons

      No cons at this point.

      Pros

      People and the friendships you make Foundational experience for recent college graduates

      Cons

      Low salary vs competitors Lack of transparency from leadership Managers/leadership are not supportive or helpful No boundaries when it comes to the “client first” mentality NA CEO tries to justify issues that could be better handled High turnover, many people leave after a few years Extremely long work hours/no work life balance, many people end up working on their days off (weekends, holidays, PTO days) and managers let it happen Lack of growth opportunities and career development unless you enjoy being stagnant and doing the same thing

      Avoid This Company At All Costs - Do Not Believe Any Positives Reviews on This Website

      Mar 19, 2021 - Senior Analyst

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Some of the people who work for this company are nice, but your mileage will vary depending on who you meet and what service line you work for.

      Cons

      * Salaries are lower than the average for the industry * Benefits are not that great * Little-to-no bonuses * Very little diversity in my office, which makes it hard for non-white employees to feel like they fit in * No work-life balance (you are expected to do the work of multiple people) * The required town halls are painful to sit through, especially pre-COVID when employees were stuffed into conference rooms * Upper management in client service is often out of touch, does not care about standards, and will do whatever it takes to get their way, even if it means bullying employees from post-op teams *From experience, I know that HR is not there to help you when an issue arises * Have heard nasty rumors about the CEO of North America * High turnover rate since everyone eventually becomes miserable and leaves * Overall, this company is a complete mess and everyone knows it
