There is no bonus unless you are a senior director, except for a few exceptions where you get a bonus of around £300 if you bring in a lot of profit (but even then you have to be a manager). You get a tiny (can't say how much but let's say it's a tiny one, so you end up with say £20 more every month after tax) raise annually IF you get a good enough rating (3 out of 5 at least) in your annual review (regardless of inflation rising every year.). This is not very well received in general but then life isn't perfect. If you are at manager level and above you do get private health insurance that you have to pay towards (not if it's just for you, but you have to pay towards it to cover your family). It doesn't really cover a lot of costs, but better than nothing. Also the insurance does not cover birth costs. Time off is great, you get 25 days off plus bank holidays plus your birthday. Sick leave is also great as you get 8 weeks of paid sick leave which is amazing and very caring of the company, it is something I really appreciate. I know people from similar companies that have 2 weeks paid sick leave that break a leg or something and then they can't pay rent, so this is really valuable! You also get a generous (year, I think) as maternity leave. The paternity leave is also good. You get a good pension package, and some lectures on why you should save money early and mortgage advice. For EU employees there is a lot of support ahead of Brexit. You also get £6 cinema tickets in London and some other discounts. You can also work from home BUT that's a catch as you need HR permission and proof that you NEED to work from home to be allowed to do it (like from a doctor etc) if your manager is strict. Other people with relaxed managers just work from home whenever they want, which feels unfair, everyone above manager level should work from home whenever they need to, we are all adults. For the tiny salary we get, of course we are still here because we love the job, company and colleagues, so it doesn't feel nice when you don't feel trusted! In all, I am very happy with the package. Sometimes I wish it was not as good (not many people use the discounts for example) and we had higher salaries instead, but no place is perfect! I love working for Ipsos and I hope they keep improving!
Working from home to avoid the daily commute, flexible hours around child care, number of holidays is quite generous, medical insurance, long paternity leave
They have flexible working and it is possible to work from home as often as you'd like.
life balance and low career growth oppotunity
As a non-contracted worker you are not entitled to any major company benefits
its complex and confusing. It changes a lot
Lots to choose from. There is a window each years which staff get to choose from a range of products
Easy money, difficult management, repetitive job
there is nothing such as a benefit package
I have been Ipsos employee for 3 months. Pay is great so far and benefits are amazing. I am genuinely happy with everything. Bonus is discussed in every 3 months and you receive a call whether you been granted 100% or less.
