    I have been working at Ipsos part-time

    Pros

    They provide good training. Good working environment, great friendly fellow employees and staff. Employees are treated with courtesy and respect. Surveys are pleasant to conduct and the day goes by quickly.

    Cons

    Hours are only part time, but you can work from minimum of 24 to maximum of 36 hours. You make your own schedule, but are required to work on either Saturday or Sunday every week. The pay is not great. Only about minimum wage.

    Advice to Management

    None. They are always professional and courtroom, friendly and helpful.

    Pros

    Growth opportunities, both vertically and horizontally - there is internal mobility and international opportunities. You can build quite the career here if you want and work for it.

    Cons

    As with any big company, there can be silos - groups and teams not coordinating with each other as often as they should. Also, sometimes things take too long to happen/change.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with, creative environment, ability to work virtually

    Cons

    As in all of market research, hours not ideal. Publicly traded company with heavy focus and pressure around "the numbers". Opportunities for growth not easily found as positions are understaffed--can't move people up if there is no one to take on their current workload.

    "Satisfying work but way too much of it"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you enjoy marketing research and intellectual stimulation this is a great place. If you enjoy working with down to earth colleagues, this is a great place. If you enjoy working with data and writing about it, this is a great place.
    If you need to work from home/remotely, this can be a great place.
    If you thrive in a congenial (rather than cut throat) work environment, this is a great place.

    Cons

    If you enjoy having a personal life, this is not a great place. There is always just quite not enough people to get the work done and it's impossible to get management to add new positions. The only way to get the work done in a quality way is to work evenings and weekends, pretty much consistently. It gets oppressive.

    Given the size of this organization, they sorely need some tech updates to facilitate data flow that could free up a lot of employee time.

    Annual raises are minimal, such that you start to fall behind on salary when cost of living is factored in. Big raises come with promotions, which is nice but there are only so many positions one can attain.

    Advice to Management

    Employees and tech are the 2 things that are needed to get this job done and ultimately please the clients. Please invest wisely in these and aim to keep employees who are doing a good job by paying them competitively. These jobs are knowledge-intensive and it's hard on all of us when someone quits and new people need to be re-trained.
