This is Mindshare.
Who we are
We are Mindshare. The global media network. We are nearly 7,000 people in 82 countries with one aim: to make our clients' brands more famous and more profitable.
Our network is always on, always live. Our people are acutely aware of what's happening in their city, their country, their specialist area of expertise. We understand brands, markets and media. Most of all, we understand other people. The people we live with. The people we work with. The people we are.
We are thinkers and doers, relentless in the pursuit of success for our clients. We do this by continually seeking - and usually finding - the perfect connection between their products and potential customers. As our name suggests, we help them gain a greater share of consumers' minds.
In the past, we did this by using our skill and clout to plan and negotiate great deals with broadcasters and publishing houses. In the liberated, unpredictable, spectacular media world of the 21st century, we use our analysis and creativity to commission a group of specialists to create a stream of brilliant ideas and control them as we distribute them around the world.

What we do
Gaining a greater share of customers' minds for our clients calls for original thinking and smart ideas. But they are worth little without rapid decision-making, committed action and faultless execution. In other words, we know the importance of getting things done - and doing them well.

I worked at Mindshare full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Wonderful place to start early on in your career, or straight out of school. Clear career progression. Easy to move up ladder quickly if you do well. Great opportunities for working abroad as well.Cons
May be a challenge for more mature or older persons, due to the youth culture dominating the agency. Introverts may also have a hard time. It's a place where the bold and extroverted have a leg up.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Not too much to improve. Curb the cliques and favoritism. Lota of cery young people becoming managers who've never managed before. Management training is essential.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied online – interviewed at Mindshare.Interview Details
A basic phone interview (why MindShare? Why this position? Tell me about your resume, etc.) and two in-person's. Focused on background, but also personality and fit within the department. Straightforward about what the job entails and expectations. Got pretty specific into each interview answer, your work ethic, etc. Overall, solid interview process and I felt like if I got it, it would be a great fit, and if I didn't, then they knew I wouldn't be a good fit and it would be for the better.Interview Questions
