    Pros

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

    Cons

    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

    My favorite part about working at GroupM were the people. They became like family.

    Cons

    The don't pay well at all. You can work as hard as you want, come in early and leave late, and it won't matter. Tere also is not much growth opportunity depending on who you're working under.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of those on your team, even those at the bottom of the list.
