    Pros

    The benefits and paid days off. That's about it. Waste of time invested in the end.

    Cons

    No structure, blind sided, no formal hr, unprofessional and they exploit you to the end. No balance for family life or at least for some not all. A lot of injustice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more professional!

    There is a lot of growth potential and great expereicne for people new to working in media advertising. Great people and ample vacation time.

    All agencies, any where you go, are understaffed. It can mean late hours periodically depending how many accounts you are working on are in planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Efficiently staff all teams so that no one team member is over worked.

    I worked at GroupM full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of anything. I guess most of the bottom layer co-workers were nice because they were all in the same class.

    Cons

    Just don't risk your life and career to come here. I guess if you are able to get a job from groupm, you are pretty much qualified for a job in any other agencies as well, even groupm's own agencies would be better, just try someplace else, there're plenty of them out there.

    Pros

    Job Security and decent vacation / sick days. Summer Fry Days.

    Cons

    No inspiration because everyone is miserable and vapid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put more faith in your soldiers and let them do some of the work that involves more than pressing buttons
