    Pros

    if you are straight out of college it is a great place to work because there are a lot of young people that work there and makes it easy to meet others. It is also great if you can be on the P & G Team because you will have that on your resume always and they are a great client - really a true partnership with Ipsos on the copy testing side. Most of the upper mgt is very nice - a very nice company environment overall - and the advancement opportunities are pretty clear cut - it is clear what your next role is.

    Cons

    there can be a lot of competition and the pay is not great - sometimes the account managers are thrown in without knowing enough about the methodologies.

    Advice to Management

    I think every account manager should have to go through training of all other positions first and fully understand methodology.

    I worked at Ipsos full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They support advertisers for many of the Fortune 500 companies, and they are the best at determining the best market research campaigns for each company.

    Cons

    There was not enough opportunity for career growth for employees in lower level positions despite the training that was offered, and it was difficult for employees to change career paths despite their potential.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to look more closely at employees who try to change career paths, for example from accounting to market research, because employees should not be pidgeon-holed into their current job. After learning the general business, an employee can be trained to do a different job and still be as asset to the company.

    Pros

    Focused on serving the needs of our clients, it is about client's business issues we are solving and not forcing a solution but rather address their problem

    Cons

    Increase collaboration across specializations, while specializations is a strength it is best leveraged with global accounts when they work closely together

    I worked at Ipsos full-time

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible in telecommuting. Salary is decent.

    Cons

    Poor management. Too focused on sales instead of quality of work. Senior management is expected to sell and everyone below them is stuck with workloads that are hard to manage.

    Advice to Management

    focus more on quality work instead of quantity.

    Pros

    Ipsos has a great company culture. They strive for employee collaboration both in work and social aspects. They offer great benefits and having fun is an important part of their company culture. Working from home on an ad hoc basis is considered acceptable.

    Cons

    Things are frequently changing. Whether this is good or bad depends on how receptive you are to change. The changes they are making are always to be more innovative, modern and current though the steps to get there may sometimes be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    What was considered "confidential" information was sometimes very public. Limit sharing sensitive information only with those absolutely necessary until the appropriate time has come to share with a larger group or company as a whole.
