    AMP Intern

    Current Employee - Measurement and Analytics in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Measurement and Analytics in Boston, MA

    I have been working at AMP Agency as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Great manager/team
    -People on the whole are very dedicated, smart, and quick
    -Senior VP was very involved with team
    -From my first week I was made a part of the team, both personally and work wise
    -Learned a lot of skills very quickly through breadth of work
    -I've heard some people say that it's hard to get an offer here from being an intern, but one of my team's members was an intern and has now been here full-time for over a year.

    Cons

    -The position was unpaid, but it is really worth it for what you learn and gain
    -Space is getting tight, as AMP is growing, so you might not get a desk!

    I worked at AMP Agency as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people at Amp really make it a great place to work. There was always something new to work on, especially with their new clients. It was also pretty cool that upper management was so involved with the every day work and that they really cared about you regardless of your position.

    Cons

    Sometimes the interns were forgotten from time to time. Also the processes seemed to take longer for their output.

    I worked at AMP Agency full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is generally OK and no one asks questions when you request time-off.

    Cons

    Underwhelming clients and projects. Pay scale is on the lowest end of the national average. There's also a serious lack of transparency between staff and senior management. Handful of great people, but not a place to stick around for the long haul.

    I worked at AMP Agency as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone treats you like you've been there forever from the second you walk in the door, very friendly staff always willing to help and definitely wants to get to know you and your goals, understanding if you are overwhelmed or need help with something

    Cons

    sometimes a little disorganized and you won't be super busy everyday. also the other interns might slack off and make you look bad

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More in depth interview! make sure all interns are at the same level and will be able to handle the work

    Intern

    I worked at AMP Agency as an intern

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere with interesting people. My supervisor did try hard with giving me projects, but usually they were too busy with their own things to give me a good project.

    Cons

    They seemed to take awhile to release a product. Also, I was not needed at all and whatever work they gave me was more so busy work just to keep me occupied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really interview interns well and understand their capabilities coming in so you can give them meaningful projects

    I have been working at AMP Agency full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    You always hear about "the people making the workplace" and this is extremely true at AMP. Hard-working, enjoyable, friendly and smart-as-hell group of marketing professionals that make you look forward to working with each day.

    Cons

    One of the unfortunate things with AMP is that most people don't know about them, or have a preconceived notion for what AMP is all about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent with the vision and future of the agency.
