    Pros

    The Finance department of Ipsos is well sctructured and the people very friendly and helpful - Great Culture. As an entry level I learned a lot not only about finance but also a bigger picture of how companies of that size operate. The office in TMS is brand new, very nice, spacious. Everyone gets a laptop and the IT equipment in general is brand new.

    Cons

    Low Salaries! Very low for such a big organisation.
    Career progression can be slow.
    Flexible working and WFH is not easily accepted

    Advice to Management

    Review the salaries otherwise you are loosing the talent.
