    Pros

    Its a great company with very flexible working hours. You are your own boss for the most part, unless you have a bad client.

    Cons

    The pay is below industry standard. You can sometimes work 24 hours straight if you have a bad client. There is little direction from management.

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive in developing talent. Give the younger employees something to strive for and try to achieve.

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

    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

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time

    Pros

    I've been here for a long time. I like our culture and our attitudes with one another. We care of each other at work. At my level, not as many politics as you would see in other places. Very relaxed atmosphere. The benefits are slightly (key word: slightly) higher than average. I love the vacation days. To start off you have 15 vacation days (3 weeks), with an option to purchase an additonal week. If you have been at the company for 5 + years or you are at management level, then you get 4 weeks of paid vacation, with an option to purchase an additional week.

    Cons

    Facilities should be updated. Upgrade some of your equipment. Invest in your employees more (I'm not saying they don't invest in you, but more perks would be nice, such as more lunch events, make the office a little more fun.)

    Advice to Management

    Make the office a little more fun. Don't stick with one way because you have been doing it for a long time. What will happen when you guys retire?

    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.

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time

    Pros

    Quick growth and fast learning process. They are ok when you ask questions and you at least get a training period which is a good thing to have, regardless of whether videos help you to learn or lot. Managers are pretty attentive and people are definitely willing to help each other. Some employees are really great and hardworking.

    Cons

    There is definite favoritism in the office. It often depends on who you your direct boss is or who is assigning you to things. Also Ipsos is just majorly understaffed. So you have to work some pretty long crazy hours even when your brand new and that can be very tough. Not sure what to do with that- they need to hire more people, which would only work if they paid more.

    Advice to Management

    Your interns who accept offers should be paid higher than new analysts...that will improve loyalty. It is so incredible necessary that you make your employees feel valued by telling them not just when they've done something wrong, but also when they do a good job. Working here can be high stress so to get a little praise after working your butt off is definitely a good idea.
