    I have been working at Interpublic Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Management recognizes talent and as long as you are working and doing a good job will be flexible with your work hours if needed. Phenomenal Personal Time Policy. Friendly colleagues. Positive environment - with the exception of some typical work place politics - but even those are not terrible. I really love my job.

    Cons

    I can't think of one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing an official telecommuting policy that allows employees the option to work remotely full time or most of the time.

    Great benefits and TONS of time off
    Very casual dress in Omaha - jeans everyday and shorts in the summer

    I would HIGHLY recommend IPG

    Cons

    Nothing major. Increased transparency from senior management and less politics when you deal with corporate in NY.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The corporate focus on diversity was a little over the top and could be toned down a bit.

    I worked at Interpublic Group

    Pros

    Being only an intern, it was a great experience and all of the employees there were very helpful. The work environment was by far the best reason to work for Interpublic Group.

    Cons

    Personally, there were not many downsides of working at Interpublic Group. One of the few things that come to mind is that it is a very competitive environment and not every job is secure. It you are not carrying your work load up to their expectations then it will not be surprising for them to quickly find you a replacement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
