    I have been working at Interpublic Group

    Pros

    The department is great, very positive people, dysfunctions are rare. The spirit of appreciating everyone for the unique talents and experience they bring is very positive.

    Cons

    At the corporate, holding-company level, IPG can get a little stuffy. It's important to maintain composure and not give off the wrong appearance that an agency isn't in the best of hands in the IPG network, but this leads to a stuffy, low to no-fun company culture.
