    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.

    Pros

    Competitive pay (especially for entry level). Enjoy my coworkers. I believe Ipsos cares about the well-being of its employees. Have flexibility to work from home if needed. Great place to begin learning about market research. 15 days of paid vacation to begin with.

    Cons

    Some of the work can be tedious. Occasionally have to stay later into the evening to reach deadlines.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reach out to your employees to ensure that they are happy and engaged during their time at Ipsos

    Pros

    Great way to learn about market research and gain experience. The flexibility of the workplace is nice. You have the ability to work remotely at your discretion

    Cons

    No structure and difficult to grow within the company. Pay is below industry standard. It is difficult to schedule reviews with management.

    Advice to Management

    To retain good employees, you need to pay market rate. Also try to develop some better training programs for recent college grads.
