    I have been working at Interbrand full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great client access, and a good place to come learn about the branding industry overall. Some really smart, nice people who want to do the right thing. Good location next to Union Square You get the week off between christmas and new year The reputation of the company continues to attract smart people that want to do cool work Occasionally you can work from home or remotely Ok benefits - we started summer fridays this year

    Cons

    - I've learned a lot, but I wouldn't recommend that any of my friends come and work here. If you don't have a Type A+ personality, this is not the place for you to stay. - IB is not thought of as a "creative" agency, so rarely do our clients tap us for any kind of work that will ever come out of a PPT presentation. That can be really disheartening when you're asked to pull the kinds of hours we do, or you see the kinds of inspiring work that our competitors win and we don't. We price ourselves out of a lot of great opportunities. - The turnover rate is high here, and people are so used to seeing new faces that no one even bothers to introduce themselves to new hires anymore since we never know if they're a freelancer, someone new, an intern, or just someone that sits on a different floor. It's a really cliquey, unwelcoming, uninspiring environment. - No work/life balance. They'll resource you to work up to 60-70 hours a week, on top of all the non-billable work you have to do. So basically, expect lots of late nights and weekend work. Yes - all agencies work long hours, but usually it ebbs and flows, or there are other perks to make it worth it. Here, it's non-stop. - Promotions are completely ad hoc and not transparent. The only way to climb up is by staying later than everyone else, becoming a martyr and working nights/weekends/on vacation (not a good standard to set!) and hoping your manager will kick and scream enough up the chain to get your modest raise. - Technology is a joke (both IT, and the business' general understanding of the digital space). Very slow moving organization that can't keep up with the times. - No 401k matching, and no bonuses. - I was hoping it was a blip on the radar, but IB never fully recovered the gravitas that the company had prior to the 2014 layoffs. The revolving door at every level here is such a joke.

    Advice to Management

    - Why don't you take some of the strategic offerings that IB sells and actually try to apply it the company? The cognitive dissonance that's on display here is *astounding*. I can't believe you have the gall to sell recommendations to other companies when you see how this place really runs, and then sit there and scratch your heads about why turnover is high and numbers are down. - We're losing people at a much higher clip lately, and everyone knows it. Wanna know why? You treat people like cogs in a wheel with lip service to "culture," but the culture really blows. The rate of departure announcements speak for themselves, and they're hitting my inbox so frequently these days I'm not even surprised when they come in. - Provide proper training for people managers. Just because someone is a good "doer" in their discipline does NOT mean they're a good manager of others, so this is something to keep in mind when promotions come around. In fact, some managers are downright awful and are the direct cause for a lot of people's departures. Perhaps you can provide other incentives to employees than just promotions, or have different tracks for people who are great at their job, but not necessarily equipped to manage others? - You need to find a way to make sure people are trained properly and more productive during normal working hours so that people can sustain a work/life balance and actually want to stay here. We waste so much time on pointless meetings, tech issues, etc. - I'd try to say that you need to properly communicate to your internal teams, but you've already heard that so many times, and nothing has changed. - We charge an ENORMOUS premium for our services (and let's be honest - the reason is because of DDB overhead, not because of value), so rarely do we ever get to work with brands that aren't already firmly established in the marketplace. Sure the finance, insurance, corporate and technology sectors are cushy and can afford IB, but IT'S SO BORING! - Resource management - what a joke.Find another system that actually makes sense and doesn't rely on office gossip/hearsay, because this one is not working (see my note about people being overworked ALL THE TIME) - Please fix this place. Everyone that's here is rooting for IB, but there's a distinct vibe that we're on a sinking ship, or that this is just "how it is," and you need to move on from IB to appreciate it. Non-excom folks have a hard enough time trying to just do our day-to-day jobs without constantly being asked to fix the business too.
