Good career booster experience, but only of you're "hot right now".

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

ProsThe People: Work with extremely smart and creative people from across the country and globe. Inter office teams are a great way to build relationships and even make some friends.

The company does make an effort to plan events and bring co workers together outside of project based situations.

The Clients: Work with great brand name clients across multiple verticals.

Opportunities: A great place for career starters. If you're good you'll get promoted and quickly. Multiple promotions looks great in your resume.

ConsThe People: Much of the higher management was acquired via multiple other agency acquisitions and or have been friends of the CEO for years. Because of this, some of these "leaders" aren't actually qualified for their jobs or VP titles.

What the clients says goes. No matter how ridiculous the request and especially if they are a top paying. Of course.

The Company: Increasingly SaaS focused (which could be positive in some aspects) the company is heavily reliant on selling promises to clients that don't actually exist yet. This puts unneeded pressure on the ops team, long work hours with little reward for successful deployment and disorganized priorities/project management and budgeting.

Archaic processes and lack of foresight into the future hurt the company in the longer run. Management's focus on quarterly revenues clouds long term profitability regardless of their ultimate goal to sell.

For the company that claims to be a leader in recruitment advertising, strategy and employee retainment, they don't keep their best talent happy.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen more objectively to comments about upper management. Especially if the feedback is consistently negative from multiple independent sources... some employees are a long term liability for overall employee happiness, team morale and client success.

– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    You'll be just a pawn, not a priority.

    Project Manager (Former Employee) New York, NY

    I worked at TMP Worldwide Advertising full-time for more than 3 years
