    Pros

    Global. Great clients. Some wonderful people.

    Cons

    Emperor rules and his wife is worse. His wife/mate is the corporate CFO, and that sets the stage.
    Very political. Too French. Not tech savvy. Takes forever to take decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Let someone else give it a try.

    "ALL 6 Women SVPs of the tech/media business unit have LEFT"

    Pros

    Lots of smart women SVPs - some of the best I've ever worked with

    Cons

    Two years ago there were 6 women SVPs who worked for the head of the Ipsos U.S. technology/media group and 5 male SVPs. They worked in Ipsos offices in NYC, LA, SF, and Seattle. ALL of these women SVPs have left Ipsos. They were some of the most talented and experienced women in research. They're now at clients (and not hiring Ipsos to do their market research) or they're working for Ipsos competitors. Two of the male SVPs also left. New boss hired from the outside...was a male (of course). When he came in, the head of ASI in the U.S. (Ipsos copy testing group) who was also a woman left. She went on to a better job at another research firm.

    Advice to Management

    LOOK AT THE DATA! And the trends. HR knew...and tried to help...but they weren't listened to...and more women left...

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I've seen great improvement with Ipsos taking action toward employees concerns and ideas. We have career (trade fairs) to educate and encourage internal division transfers, hiring classes for entry level (which means more support and working efficiently) and they provide more conferences/trainings for personal and career development.

    I've been with the company for about 9 years and I can say we are headed the right direction.

    Cons

    None at this time. No company is perfect, but Ipsos listens to its employees and works.

    Advice to Management

    Continue putting employees first.

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    rated #2 most innovative MR company in the world and you see this in a lot of areas - behavioral economics, observational, social media, neuroscience etc so some fun things to get involved with. Business is very strong this year which takes some pressure off and has helped with bonuses etc. there are many really smart people to work with here

    Cons

    would be good to do more company social events - when we do, they are a great way to meet people from other divisions/different backgrounds, but don't think there are enough of them

    Lots of really smart people. Big focus on clients. The work is very interesting. Who doesnt want to learn more about how people make decisions?

    Advice to Management

    Keep focusing on the new tools and techniques
