Director - Ipsos Connect (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 31, 2018
It is an average research supplier working experience there. There were more busy, long hour days than none. It all depends on the client you work with and the team you are on. Your success there depends on how successful your team is in making their numbers for the year. There isn't a company-wide culture. The culture and enjoyment come from the team you are on.
Senior Vice President (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 31, 2018
Five years ago when I first joined Ipsos, they prided themselves on giving employees the freedom to make decisions. As time went by and the company wasn't getting the sales they wanted, they cracked down on the freedom for groups to make their own decisions. Something as minor as hiring an entry level person had to be signed off on by the US finance director twice...once when you wanted to post the position (understandable), but then again when you found a candidate and wanted to make an offer. We lost a lot of good candidates waiting for the red tape of approvals.
Facility Manager (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – July 10, 2018
I started the day with looking at the production reports from last night performance, then replying to all urgent emails, and moving onto scheduling.I met with Supervisors and staffing for the evening shift to give them project updates. Monitoring and extra duties are done throughout the shift. What I've learned from Ipsos throughout the years that everyday is always different and new task will need to be accommodate. The workplace is always friendly and professional. The hardest challenge for Ipsos is to meet production across the board each night. The most enjoyable thing about Ipsos is the experience I've learned from Management and HR.
Good benefits especially healthcare
All call at the time when you're the Facility Manager
Research Analyst (Former Employee) – Cincinnati, OH – June 26, 2018
I liked the people I worked with but the company did some restructuring and I was placed under a manager located in Chicago. I only ever met my manager face to face twice over a year span. I never felt like a part off the team or that I received the feedback I wanted. I had asked to be placed on a different team but was denied this request. I liked what I did and the tasks I was asked to perform but felt the management structure, particularly in my case, was lacking.
Senior Research Manager (Former Employee) – San Francisco, CA – April 18, 2018
Ipsos was one of the worst places I worked at. The company culture lacks a sense of community. Management has no focus, and the focus is on turning around projects without any transparency into business impact. Horrible place for working parents.
OK place to get a job right out of college
Poor work-life balance, lack of team spirit, no vision, and little growth opportunity
Market Research Interviewer (Current Employee) – Fresno, CA – January 13, 2018
It was a good job to return to after an extended time away from the market place. But for me it was just temporary. And unfortunately for those who have been there long the Fresno call center is closing.
No fixed schedule. Basically made your own schedule.
Market Research Interviewer (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – January 9, 2018
Your able to pick your own schedule good second job. You basically dial and take surveys all day. Not too bad extremely easy and boring. There is no room for advancement so if your trying to move up in a company this is not the company.
Interviewer (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – December 26, 2017
I didnt really like working here to be honest. Alot of the time I got chewed out or yelled at by the people I had to call for the surveys because it was to late where they lived, it was a holiday or they didnt agree with the survey. Managment doesnt r4ewally help out new people very much. Its kinda like either you understand it or you dont, and if you dont you probably wont last long there. It was sort of a stressful, judgmental environment.
A good place to work, while going to college or putting together better options.
Market Research Assistant (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – December 6, 2017
Fun place to work. Has a break room. However, you have to meet your production rate when on the telephones. Management will give you up to three warnings before firing you for not meeting your production rate.
Overall the job is ok when it comes to needing a job
Market Researcher (Former Employee) – Fresno, CA – November 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.
15 minute paid break
short breaks and lunch its always freezing even during winter, sickness spreads fast, not the best pay, old computers, broken equipment ect....
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!
Secret Shopper (Current Employee) – Columbus, GA – June 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
