    Pros

    Great clients and great employees - this agency respects individuals and in turn respects personal time. Some internal processes are restricted due to IPG Policies but the agency strives to set and live by its own culture. The PTO allocation is generous and the agency currently offers summer Fridays (3pm finish June-Aug), additional benefits are appreciated. Smaller agency feel with global agency opportunities and vision.

    Cons

    Certain restrictions/policies set by parent company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to ask for and listen to feedback - it works.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at DeVries Global (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for this position online at my university career center. I received a email to set up a phone interview with the HR Coordinator within a day. I had a phone interview 2 days later. The inital contact was very flexible. I was then asked to come to interview with a few account coordinator the following week. The HR Coordinator worked with my schedule so I could interview with the coordinators. The interview was very fun and relaxed. I felt comfortable answering and asking questions.
