I have been working at Interbrand full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The Company has a brand and in itself manages to leverage itself well in the marketplace. The rank and file staff are generally enthusiastic and earnest, if not exactly brilliant strategically or creatively the most dynamic. In part this is because the client base is either a large corporation that has cash to spare or a smaller one that hasn't realized that they can get sub-Interbrand quality for free (you get what you pay for).

Cons

There is little banter or team spirit vs a more creative ad agency environment which may not suit everyone. Senior management very prone to helicoptering in and making rash strategic, hiring/firing decisions based on impulse which demoralizes an intelligent workforce.

Advice to Management

Start to move with the times and be less old-school, there is still a view that "digital is a threat" to branding and much of the thinking is really ten years plus out of date. There is much potential for Interbrand but it needs a new generation to lead it.

    Pros

    Very strong talent in strategy, generally nice people.

    Cons

    No real rewards for excellent performance. IB promotes people after they've been doing the job for 1+ year, so promotion time can be more resentful than satisfying.

    Advice to Management

    More disciplined approach to promotions, raises, etc.
