    I worked at Interpublic Group

    Pros

    The benefits are good. There is some opportunity to work across companies held by Interpublic Group. I like the ERG's.

    Cons

    It is a very corporate environment. Although it is in the creative industry, many new ideas are rejected because of corporate ideology.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a more inclusive environment. Many decisions are made behind close doors without input from employees. If you're going to hire someone in a management role, give his/her future direct reports an opportunity to meet them first

    Pros

    It's a good place to start working in advertising. The network is still substantial and some of the clients are good to work for. There is a desire to do things differently. Maybe the place will get back it's vibe once the whole industry revives as well. Young people often get substantial responsibility early on in their career.

    Cons

    The atmosphere is just plain rotten. Cost cutting has started to undermine all motivation.
    The only news we get from senior management is that they've seen the light and that we're a team
    and we're all going digital which is as substantive and credible as a 60's ad for soap. There is a culture of making excuses and cooperation between the various silos is just not working.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some professional middle management in, preferrably not from the ad industry to install proper procedures and motivation. Stop raving about being a creative powerhouse when you're not.
