A once respected company, now in the final death throes
Senior Leader (Current Employee) – USA – July 20, 2016
Through a combination of hubris, lack of vision, and total ineptitude, this once respected company is now the laughing stock of the industry.
The culture is absolutely toxic and employee morale is at an all-time low. Virtually all of the good talent have jumped ship, or are in the process of doing so. Incompetents stay on, thanks to their connections, while great talents are let go. Look at the number of open head counts--there's a reason the company can't fill these roles!
Clients are aware of this as well, which makes it even harder for Ipsos. The revolving door of management has created utter confusion among top clients. From "Game Changers," to "Connect," to "Madtech," to "BrandX," nobody is quite sure who is doing what. The only certainty is that the buffoons at the helm seem to think that success will be secured by bringing on more overpriced and incompetent cronies and goons.
Think long and hard before accepting an offer here--it's a miserable, miserable place.
Highly politicized, toxic work environment. Inept management.
