Rewarding, autonomous and innovative

London, England (UK)

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

ProsBroad roles, supportive management, open to innovation and challenge of the status quo. Inspiring senior management.

ConsCareer development is a little hit and miss. Internal networking between markets is tough, too much competition internally for revenue.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate an open job site where people can post their CV's and skills to allow movement within Ipsos.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Reasonable firm but not good to its people

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsFlexible schedules (though lots of hours). Global reach - can work almost anywhere if you want to.

ConsPoor work-life balance. Salaries/titlesdo not match workloads/hours. Pretty poor (expensive) health insurance for such a large company also.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployee retention should be number 1 on the list for the year, not down towards the bottom. Everything else will improve if your employees are happy.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Okay..?

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ipsos as an intern for less than a year

Pros- Working with smart and attentive colleagues
- Sufficient working facilities
- Nice working environment

Cons- The nature of the industry creates a rigid team that somehow can't grasp the meaning of teamwork
- Not enough mentoring for the first time of working in the industry
- Undefinable working hours

Advice to Senior ManagementResearch is not a game of guess works, but that doesn't mean that you can't work in the creative and fun way. Working environment is nice, to promote "work" but not to manage the stress level of the employees

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
