    Pros

    Good range of research, teamwork and presentation experience. Management responds well to requests for more work as there is a a lot to go around. Good for ambitious interns.

    Well paid, plus friendly colleagues and management have resulted in a positive experience all round.

    Cons

    Due to the varied research taken on by the company sometimes you'll find yourself doing research on projects which you have little to no prior knowledge about are not in your area of interest.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Supervisors are mostly friendly and helpful, some jobs very interesting and the work does not 'follow you home' - at the end of the day you're done. Zero-hour contract is ideal for those who need flexibility. Option to work from home is a plus.

    Cons

    Dealing with the public can be stressful, no off-site access to staging site means that on new jobs you can feel woefully under-prepared to answer any questions that the people on the other end of the phone may have. Briefs are very short, often feeling too short.

    Advice to Management

    Enable access to staging site outwith the building, and if possible let interviewers know beforehand what survey they will be on so they feel adequately prepared.

    Pros

    Very flexible job, perfect for young people and good salary

    Can be a bit frustrating knocking on doors at times, and a bit lonely, but this is expected given the nature of market research

    Flexible work
    Good money, even better if your really good at the job.
    Nice manager and supportive team
    Get to take about nature.

    Cons

    Horrendous venues. A Terrible venues coordinator, at least for the north west group.
    Also repetitive job.
    Stood at venues and in streets.

    Advice to Management

    Have the strength to tell the venues coordinator to do a better job. Get us better venues with a actual footfall.
