    I have been working at Ipsos full-time

    Pros

    Fairly casual environment. Benefits seem good.

    Cons

    If you're not in Client Service, then good luck advancing your career or getting paid a fair salary.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate your employees appropriately. The most effective way to increase salary should not be to go work somewhere else and then come back. The "merit" raises every year are a pittance. Encourage people to stay by paying them a fair wage.

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

    Pros

    Typical corporate environment, comfortable with a gym and some good employee benefits like a 200 dollar yearly fitness expense

    Cons

    Long hours, with dated IT equipment will have you staring at your screen waiting for programs to load up to an hour of your day. There's also high turn over because Ipsos pays about 10-20% below the market.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing, they do a good job executing their strategy, it leads to low retention but they have different targets

    We’re glad to hear you’re making the most out of our fitness and employee benefits. Please be patient as we implement several IT upgrades across the U.S. and Canada.
