Featured Review

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Ipsos part-time

Pros

Flexible hours are a major pro to the job. The staff are very friendly as well as managers. I enjoyed the office layout very much so.

Cons

The computer system used is very old and constantly breaking. No holiday pay is not great and shifts are regularly cancelled.

Advice to Management

Could do with an update on computer system and more incentives for meeting targets.

Current Employee - Research Manager

I have been working at LRW full-time for more than a year

Pros

LRW cares for their employees. People are smart and given opportunities to grow from the start. When COVID hit, management made the tough decision to implement across the board pay cuts to prevent... job losses. They have listened over the following months, and done a huge amount to relieve the stress and financial pressure of WFH. They have channeled money back into their employees that would've been spent on in-person events, and are doing everything they can to adapt to our needs. Mental health is a priority right now, and the talent team are actively listening and providing resources. We're on track to recover financially and reinstate salaries in the coming months, with executives prioritizing those on the lowest salaries who have had the largest financial impact. This shows how mindful the exec team are of the human impact of their decisions. Re: the negative reviews on here - your experience will vary hugely based on your business unit. Look for a team that you click with, and ASK for the opportunities you want. You can succeed and grow quickly in your job here, or get stuck doing boring tasks over and over - it's not just about your manager, it's about the way you approach and show up. Same re: work/life balance - I don't think this company is any worse than others. There are tough days and easy days, busy weeks and light weeks. Once you start leading projects you take the responsibility to get the job done for your clients. If it gets too much, it's also your responsibility to raise that with management and find additional resources to lighten your load.

Cons

Not a con, but we miss going into the office due to COVID! Otherwise, small day-to-day issues are quickly resolved if you raise them with management. Starting pay is low, and you need to prove... yourself to get promotions/raises. This is a good thing, but is frustrating at first. The biggest salary jump happens at Senior Research Manager (2-3 years after you start as a Research Associate). Keep on top of your goals and keep communication with your manager open and you'll get there faster.

Advice to Management

Be more transparent about salary at the different roles, and help people develop themselves into better workers so they can contribute more earlier in their careers AND get the $$ bump they're... looking for.
