    I have been working at Ipsos full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    No pressure
    Job for life if you don't rock the boat

    Cons

    Weak and uninspiring Australian Leadership team. CEO and MDs in Australia lost with no plan or ability to turn the business around. Staff just go through the motions as that is what they do. Company now led by finance compliance checklists and processes rather than by customer needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take control back from CFO and regain the spirit that formally made the company great.

    Pros

    fun place to work. Good people and great attitude. But, I hear things have started going down

    Cons

    not much clarity on where the company wants to go (grow).... depends too much on individuals to drive the growth with out clear direction from the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    provide clear goals -- coach, mentor and compensate employees for their efforts.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Great co-workers and office culture. A lot of flexibility and opportunities to grow and develop. Get to be involved in all aspects of research and learn on the job. Base salary is good and benefits are great.

    Fast-paced and stressful at times. A challenge to balance work and personal time.

    Would wish for more time on projects in order to invest more on analyzing results for clients

    Pros

    I have a great manager and team that support my development, I get challenging career opportunities, and I love the work environment.

    Cons

    Upper management and the company as a whole is very slow and bureaucratic, so it can take time for change to be enacted.
