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

Pros

The 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.

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

Listen 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.

    Pros

    Your colleagues, not the management, make it bearable to get through the day. The "regular" people are the smart creative ones while everyone else above you takes the credit. If that's what you are looking for, godspeed.

    Cons

    Long hours, worked to the bone and horrible salary. It is not easy to move up the ladder unless you form friendships with your supervisors. If you get on anyone's bad side, you won't move up.....ever. Especially if the CEO doesn't like you, you might as well just quit. A lot of the credit is given to the people above you when it's the lower ones doing all of the grunt work to make it successful. There is a lot of over promising to their clients and not enough thought about what it takes to actually pull something off. The turn around time they provide to the client is unrealistic. They just want money from their clients so they will say yes to anything. This money does not flow through to the employees who actually do the work.TMP is a recruitment agency that cannot even retain their own talent. GO FIGURE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give raises and promotions to the ones who actually deserve it and work hard.
