    Former Employee - Research Manager in London, England
    Recommends

    I worked at Ipsos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Everyone is really smart, ambitious, collaborative and helpful. The research is done to a very high standard. Research Managers have a really huge responsibility, basically doing higher level work than you'd expect at other agencies.

    Cons

    I couldn't keep up with the pace and sheer amount of work -- we were expected to manage about 5 projects, but they are always really big projects, with many countries and lots of complexities. We were encouraged to innovate and use new methods, but didn't get the space to experiment with new approaches. In other words, we'd have to use new and different approaches with real clients who were expecting 'above and beyond' deliverables and results. Very stressful when you're essentially experimenting with something new, meaning that you're working very long hours 'fixing' things that inevitably go wrong, and lying awake at night worrying about the projects.

    Pros

    Great organisation to work for, Top values, Interesting projects, Insights to any areas of life. They take care of their employees, unless...see Cons

    Cons

    ....you are in Field, where communication is v v BAD + general atmosphere is down to below zero. There is no transparency in terms of objectives or expectations, also if you don`t go after (on your own and even fight for what) you are entitled to, or simple things that taking advantage of participating in internal trainings, as part of the IpsosMORI team, there is nothing available for you to grow. You are being pretty much used, whipped as a slave .Had my happiest moment when out, though felt worried about my colleagues left behind :(

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Ipsos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some of the people working there are very talented, but they usually don't stick around for too long

    Cons

    No work-life balance whatsoever, no transparency regarding bonuses or salaries, the company's strategy and culture is not to attract and retain talent, but to oversell and use people as much as possible and force them to deliver with impossible deadlines.
