It can be fun if you are "chosen" by the management
Research Manager (Current Employee) – Toronto – 18 July 2012
Ipsos' culture at work can be extremely buraucratic.
In general, researchers tend to be intelligent, intellectual and down-to-earth and adversive to office politics. However, the team at Ipsos is outrageously political and divided by "the chosen ones" vs the not. The chosen ones enjoy all the attention while the non-chosen ones will just look from the outside in being totally ignored by the management, and it just feels miserable.
Workload is way too much with 10-20 hours of overtime a week as the norm.
