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


    Great working environment, the best people, social environment and career support I've gotten in my career. Leadership that truly cares about your growth and success. Normal hours for the most part. Lots of time off. :)


    Pay increases have been stagnant over the past few years due to industry dynamic changes, lower than average industry pay. Uncertainty of knowing about promotions, etc.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency with regards to the future of more specifically tenured associates, those looking to move up the ladder, whether there will be opportunities for them come the time or do they have to leave to find them. Agency is suffering big time from the high turnover of tenured, experienced associates.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Starcom USA (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.


    Completed an online application, it took about a month to hear back from someone to schedule a phone interview, then a few days after that to schedule an in-person interview.
