I worked at Interpublic Group full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

A very energized company with terrific senior leadership. A lot of potential for career advancement and personal growth. A regionally diverse company with people from many cultures.

Cons

Very much subject to changes in the economy which affects client spending. This of course affects annual budgets. Sometimes, hours can be long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep improving and growing.

    I have been working at Interpublic Group full-time

    Pros

    Favors strong project management and process improvement. IT executives/leaders are unusually good. Mid-level managers are hit or miss. Strong benefits and PTO. Challenging environment because of complex, global structure of 100+ partially or wholely owned companies to service. Great place to build your resume if you're motivated and ask for stretch projects. They do not fire employees easily. Overall, a good place to work...but see cons below.

    Cons

    Employee training determined by local managers (there is no real centralized HR training program). Omaha office is notably more fun than NY. You need to know how to develop yourself professionally. If you're a mediocre performer, you'll languish.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emphasize professional development and people skill development.
