Overall the job is ok when it comes to needing a job
Market Researcher (Former Employee) –  Fresno, CANovember 15, 2017
Ipsos is an OK place to work nothing realy fun about it nor do you look forward to going in anytime. The environment is not much to complain about hardest part about the job was when the decided to switch you from am back to pm shifts or the fact that they have so many people working when you do get am shift its hard to get days. You really have to hype yourself up for going to a job were you sitting at a desk for 6hrs of course with a 30 minute lunch and 1 break but to sit there knowing they expect so much from you knowing you getting so little from them. Its not the best pay for the rate and as many calls they expect us to be at by the end of the day.
Pros
15 minute paid break
Cons
short breaks and lunch its always freezing even during winter, sickness spreads fast, not the best pay, old computers, broken equipment ect....

Recruiter
Contract Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHSeptember 28, 2017
As a recruiter, it was a rewarding position and honored to have been part of a great HR department. It was rewarding to fill challenging positions with excellent analytical candidates and to hear positive feedback from senior leaders. It was a great experience!

Analyst (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHAugust 31, 2017
I loved my role and overall Ipsos is a great company to work for. Unfortunately the team I worked on had budget issues, which created an environment of fear.

Great benefits and fair work/family balance policies.

I would recommend Ipsos.

good
Interviewer (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAJuly 20, 2017
They are a good company, great people and they are very understanding. All the management is great, there is no favoritism between the employees. The only thing is that is slow right now.

Alrite for just a little extra change
Secret Shopper (Current Employee) –  Columbus, GAJune 12, 2017
you have to wait to long to receive payment and or assignments but it depends on where you live at. This is great for earning a little extra money but would probably be a hindrance if doing it on a full time basis
Pros
getting paid for little effort
Cons
the amount of time it takes to get paid

Upper Management Disarray
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHJanuary 9, 2017
No work life balance with no clear direction from upper management.
New hires were not prepared for the work required of them to perform their duties. Workload was pushed off to senior people which were already overloaded resulting in poor production.

Great for a starting job or someone returning to the work force
Senior A/ P Assistant/Benefits Administrator (Current Employee) –  Norwalk, CTAugust 30, 2016
There are a lot of talented people working at the company. Many are stuck in their position because the opportunity to grow is a struggle. The company is very catty and title driven. Many of the departments are like high school. The separation between friendships and best business practices are not clearly defined.

Man of the people are friendly however there those that impossible to work with because of their attitudes.
Cons
pay scale is low and sometimes the hard work you put in is not appreciated

A once respected company, now in the final death throes
Senior Leader (Current Employee) –  USAJuly 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.
Pros
Free coffee
Cons
Highly politicized, toxic work environment. Inept management.

Just a job, you are just a number
Quality Assurance Team Lead (Current Employee) –  Fresno, CAMay 26, 2016
No Happy medium. Extremely slow and no work at times. When busy they beg for hours. Supervisors are demoted to lower positions when slow and have limited hours as well. You are viewed as a number not an employee. No recognition or rewards, it all about how much they can make. I enjoy my job when I get to do it.
Pros
Flexible schedule
Cons
Lack of work at times, too busy at other to the point of total exhaustion, no employee recognition, Just a number, how much can you make us, No room to advance, Those in supervisor roles do less work than those in lower positions.

Chaotic environment
Manager (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 14, 2016
There are a lot of initiatives but sometimes it is hard to get things done. If you get connected to the correct people, there is a lot to learn. It's a large global company with many different opportunities. Work-life balance is definitely a challenge even with work-at-home opportunities.
Pros
work-at-home
Cons
good benefits
