Complete cluster and unnecessary panic.

I worked at Wunderman (New York) full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Pitch like pros, always looking for a "big idea." Very bad at executing those ideas, strategically and creatively. Great at finding genuinely talented junior staff, but susceptible to bullsh*t artists at most higher levels. Data group is solid, but spends time massaging bad results.

Cons

Completely unable to deliver on promises made in pitches. Waste too much time in meetings and morale/profile building activities, to detriment of client work. People rewarded for sucking up, not results.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend more time (and allow staff to focus) on real projects, before the client is walking out the door.

    I have been working at Wunderman (New York) as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    A mix of talented creative people make this a good place to spend your time.

    Cons

    The place is run by account, seemingly, and doesn't seem to have a coherent vision of who they are or where they want to go - it is reflected in the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lots of Jrs, lots of Chiefs - no one in between to offer real creative direction or to push the work to the next level.

    I worked at Wunderman (New York) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart, hard-working people. The rank and file is seriously committed to servicing their clients and delivering meaningful results. Impressive global network. A few very talented stand-outs.

    Cons

    Executive management is disconnected from staff and clients. Executive management delivers very little value. Raises and promotions are difficult to come by resulting in a high attrition rate among the most talented staff. Like many publicly traded companies, the focus is on the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice "management by walking around" instead of secluding yourselves in your offices. Demonstrate your value to clients and staff. Understand that when clients tell you repeatedly that your Creative and Strategic output is sub-standard, they are probably telling you the truth.
