It was ok for the most part and really chill but what lead alot of my coworkers and I to quit is that they started doing really intrusive surveys that we were not comfortable doing. We didn't have a choice in the matter so we decided to leave.
Pros
Decent break time and relaxed work environment
Cons
surveys can very from fun to really intrusive on peoples privacy

Supportive and great staff. Some cons would include some of the co workers not being chatty but that is just because they want to do their own thing. Great work and great management.

It's a fast paced job almost daily project deadline. Sometimes you can barely keep up with deadline requirements. The nature of the job doesn't match how much you are paid for.

The culture is slightly relaxed. There needs more collaborative and supportive work effort within internal staff members. The hardest part is finding work life balance and trying to receive more supportive efforts from the teams.

Ipsos Reid was an Awesome place to work. I loved working at Ipsos Reid. It was a very fun environment to work in. I was capped to 12 dollars an hour. I wouldn't be able to get any more than that. I could have found another job that paid more then what Ipsos was paying me. I really enjoyed working there. As soon as we got laid off on Friday I started another job 2 days later for 17 dollars an hour. 5 dollars more then what I was getting paid. But, I missed what I was doing from my heart. I was competing every day to do most interviews than others. The best way it can be made with perfect monitoring skills. Till today when I get calls from Ipsos I always do their surveys no matter what I am doing. I really liked the environment. Everyone knew each other. We were like a family there for 7 years. I always missed Ipos Reid. If they come back to Edmonton I would be happy to work there again.

They have trouble planning ahead on the workload and dont bother to inform their employees about it. As a part timer having two jobs makes it difficult to plan ahead since they can book you in for a few weeks and then cancel a few days before.

A difficult job as there was a lot of negativity from respondents and you would get anxious phoning people.

The job was hit or miss, depended on the client mostly. Management was pretty good at being responsive, however they tended to have their hands tied by higher levels.

Not a good work environment at all- ok if you need something just to make a bit of extra cash, not as a full time job. You can’t even breathe because your live calls are constantly listened to and graded by team managers on a very subjective basis. Before you know it, alerts pop up on your screen asking you to meet with a call monitor or team manager for coaching. Lots of favouritism, as team managers decide on a subjective basis who gets frequently graded as “Needs Improvement.” The more you’re graded in the “Needs Improvement “ category, the greater the chance you could be fired as this will affect the greater evaluation of your performance. You may find at the most one sincere team manager, but the rest tend to be highly critical and you can tell they talk about some employees behind their backs. Too stressful a job for minimum wage and you’ll never get to save much of anything.
Pros
Helpful and friendly coworkers
Cons
Highly critical team managers and supervisors, office politics, favouritism, high pressure and stress, not a motivating work environment

Calm work environment. Flexible hours. Friendly colleagues and management who was very often available to discuss any problem that may arise. Have recommended to friends and would continue to do so.

I worked at IPSOS for two years as a Bilingual Coder in Winnipeg. The best thing of Ipsos culture is the continuous training - which stands out of entry level jobs in Canada. They will make sure you are ready do carry out a good job. After a few weeks of training you will be continously coached by the Head Coder and Team Leader. The problem of this job is that you do not have a lot of room for growing. And the difference of wage between coders and head coders is only $1.25. They don't have many team leaders and those who they have are at the same position for several years. The negatives of this position is (1) that is very boring the coder thing; (2) it is a very cold environment, you say "good morning" and nobody replies; (3) they will reduce your hours when they are "light of job". In this respect, Ipsos is ok if you have another job, of if you are a student and cannot work a lot.
Pros
Great company
Cons
Not a place to make your life

Not Much to say about a call center. Not much room to move up in management. They will give you a raise after a certain amount of months. The dress code is relax. Just meet your quotas on surveys and you'll be fine.

What I really like about this company is that every so often you get a review about the work you have done so far in the past few months and if you passed you get a raise. ALL the people I worked with, the managers and team leaders are all super friendly and easy to get along with.
