    Good company to work for, but advancement is spotty.

    I worked at GroupM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Fun clients to work with. Great exposure to media. (Mostly) Good co-workers. Relatively laid back atmosphere. Good facility and location.

    Cons

    Advancement is spotty depending on your department/client/function. You can advance in some departments while others just have a tenured manager who is in place for their relationship with the client. If you care about such things there is relatively high turnover: it's a revolving door of low-paid recent college grads looking to get their foot in the door of the media world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know entry-level people are cheap but the revolving door at the bottom brings in immature and unprofessional people. Yeah the bad seeds get weeded out quickly but I'd rather not have had to deal with a new 22-year-old every few months.

    Unsatisfactory. The company does not deliver on promises.

    Pros

    Huge company ensures access to all areas of media.

    Cons

    Rigid hierarchy and matrix management makes for a cumbersome company.
    Too many chiefs clogging up promotion opportunities.
    Company does not adhere to stated work/life balance statements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simplify the reporting/management structure.
