    I worked at Ipsos full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employees are very dedicated and responsible in general, intelligent mentors

    Cons

    Juniors are poorly paid, not given bonuses despite slogging off at work every night because "company was overall not doing well". Silly rules like even when distributing new laptops, priority is given to senior positions and juniors were given old laptops - don't they understand juniors make up the backbone of the company?

    I have been working at Ipsos full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    . Exposure to different kind of market research projects . HR is rolling out different programs and initiatives to improve workplace culture . The country manager is giving her best to improve the situation and this is very encouraging

    Cons

    . Very hierarchical. In some department, people holding higher ranks deem themselves more of a human than juniors. This is very dangerous and unhealthy for juniors who want to learn . Some seniors seem to adopt a patronizing tone when talking to juniors . High turnover rate. HR only comes out with initiatives when realizing that >1 person resign each month. HR, to be frank, seems helpless to solve this issue and the company sees HR as only an administrator. . Low pay as compared to industry standard. Maybe HR can look at Payscale or Glassdoor to know the industry standard when it comes to pay . Beware of technological revolution; now your clients can get hold of data and analyze them in-house and may not need an agency to do it in the long-run. . Please consider how to train your staff to be more competent and competitive. It is shocking to see that some staff have 0 capability in SQL querying, simple Excel skills or analyzing large data set, even at a director level. . Recent workplace bullying alert resonated among many juniors. They do not want to raise it up as they had done it before (by reporting to the directors/leaders in their own department) and saw no improvement.

    Great learning. Ipsos used to be a place where there was the human touch, however all things changed after the Total Understanding restructuring. Everything became numbers driven and good employees start leaving in flocks.

    Cons

    Long hours Pay below industry standard Lack of promotion opportunities with lame excuses given to justify Super high turnover rate
