Current Employee - Consultant  in  New York, NY
Current Employee - Consultant in New York, NY

Pros

Strong client list, always learning something new, challenging projects, handful of teammates who are intelligent, hard-working and always going the extra mile.

Cons

Maintaining work egos gets exhausting. Ego Service Controller is an unofficial role of every employee from junior to senior level. Watch out for the ones who think it is your honor and privilege to work for them.

Career Advancement - Management loves to talk about it. However, there is no sort of plan behind it. Expect blank stares or mixed messages when asking about your career track within the company even if your performance evaluation goes well. Directors, Executive Directors, the NY CEO and HR are all clearly in disagreement about what career development means at Interbrand. Collectively, they send the message it's easier for the company to have employees leave and bring in new hires than support current employees' careers. 

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get on the same page of a real company message on what it means to be an Interbrand employee. Being fabulous, awesome, winners, etc doesn't mean anything. It especially loses meaning when employees cannot be properly compensated nor advance in their careers. Be able to answer the following question for your current employees: Why should anyone continue to work for you?

    Current Employee - Consultant in New York, NY

    Pros

    learned a lot. good stepping stone for a new job. very smart people. thought leaders. high visibility. easily recognized clients

    Cons

    very low pay, no room for work/life balance, can be soul crushing. very high turnover rate. Morale can often be low. Not always comfortable to "drink the cool aid"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    encourage team leaders to let employees have a life. It's a consulting agency, yes, but you're losing a lot of good talent because of it. And pay people better.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Pros

    - When I started there somewhat competent management and technology in place.
    - Very young social crowd

    Cons

    - customer service to users and clients is not completely kissing their asses.
    - NO new tech after management changes.
    - Senior management completely not technically savvy.
    - If you ever say no to anyone for any reason you're labeled "Not a team player"
    - The place is full of whining brats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire the brats, grow a pair of balls and get some senior people in there that know what they're doing and listen to them when they have differing opinions than yours. Pay your people instead of free cheap beer and wine on Fridays....
