    I have been working at Ipsos full-time

    Pros

    Large company with opportunities to grow relatively quickly, salaries are OK (in line with other market research companies), you can move internally if you want to learn about a different area within the company.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance can vary greatly depending on your department (some teams are always swamped while others have a relatively comfortable workload), no real investment in technology (for such a large company many things are done manually and many processes could be automated/improved)

    Pros

    Flexible working arrangements, stellar managers, great benefits from extended health and dental to vision to 3 weeks vacation starting at entry-level.

    Cons

    Working in professional services can mean working a lot more than 40 hours; you'll have to really manage your workload directly with your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the employee surveys

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

    Pros

    Incredible people. I'm surrounded by smart, proactive, positive go-getters who work extremely hard, and it's inspiring. My team never plays the "blame game," but instead - we lift each other up and have each others' backs. Also, when I need to handle personal issues, I am allowed and no one asks any questions. Big-name clients.
    I will also add that in my experience, I have NEVER been stretched so much professionally or learned so much. Looking back at the past several months (I'm still a relatively new employee as I've been here about 10 months now), I am absolutely stunned and proud of the sheer amount of information I have taken in and put to use. No one day is ever the same - that's for sure. I know that wherever my career takes me, because of the time I've spent here at Ipsos (and I plan to stay for awhile), I'm going to be a star.

    Cons

    Benefits are ok at best.
    Work life balance does not exist, and though Ipsos strives to provide that, given the unrealistic expectations and workload for many of us, it is damn near impossible.
    Burnout is a very real phenomenon. That is my biggest quibble with this company, and I think across the board at Ipsos this is a major issue - and people do burnout and leave. It's unfortunate. Another frustration that I have is the fact that I literally have 4 different "bosses" in 4 different cities on about 5 different accounts. It's quite difficult to please them all.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your expectations a little better. I feel like I'm doing 3 people's jobs right now.

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

    Pros

    I have had two unbelievable managers that give me really interesting projects. I am also incredibly interested in the work that I'm doing. Given my specific position and clients, I also get to travel a fair amount. Upon starting, you get 15 vacation days which is incredible.

    Cons

    First things first, the pay is not great. The bonus structure isn't meant to give anything to younger employees. On top of that, office politics are very real. While you will see this everywhere, Ipsos has more than their fair share.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people more
