    I worked at IPG Mediabrands as an intern

    Pros

    The company does not pay very well.

    Cons

    Nothing, except the location being midtown Manhattan

    Current Employee - Online Marketing Expert in New York, NY

    I have been working at IPG Mediabrands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good vacation benefits. Flexible work schedule. Good location. Great place to grow your skill set. But that comes at a cost.

    Cons

    Terrible pay for NYC and that doesn't account for the absurd workload. (HINT: Less people to pay, more profit. Do more with less.) As mentioned in the pros, you will grow your skill set, but only because you have to deal with constant issues that stem from awful communication.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on quality over quantity. Yes, you are in a competitive market and have to under-staff. However, that stress and weight is put on the backs of employees.

    I have been working at IPG Mediabrands full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Time off, multiple disciplines, and relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    Very poor communication across agencies, lack of transparency, hierarchy is very top heavy, agency leaders are way more concerned with relationships than being progressive and successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparency, transparency, and transparency! And, be consistent if nothing else. This is why everyone (top down) is jumping ship at an alarming speed. The HR department seems very transactional and offer no real benefit to developing people.

    I worked at IPG Mediabrands full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - team was very good! Very nice people, best I have worked with
    - good team culture
    - flexible and understandable from senior management

    Cons

    - Lots of Senior management changes, not easy for employee to feel settle and have an orientation of what they are doing, because every 3 months, their big boss changes, and will be told to do different things
    - Not enough personal development
    - They use their own indoor tools, so is not the best if you have to go back to the work market one day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - If the senior management keeps changing all the time, how would them to expect the juniors to stay?
