    I have been working at Interpublic Group

    Pros

    The department is great, very positive people, dysfunctions are rare. The spirit of appreciating everyone for the unique talents and experience they bring is very positive.

    Cons

    At the corporate, holding-company level, IPG can get a little stuffy. It's important to maintain composure and not give off the wrong appearance that an agency isn't in the best of hands in the IPG network, but this leads to a stuffy, low to no-fun company culture.

    Pros

    Management recognizes talent and as long as you are working and doing a good job will be flexible with your work hours if needed. Phenomenal Personal Time Policy. Friendly colleagues. Positive environment - with the exception of some typical work place politics - but even those are not terrible. I really love my job.

    Cons

    I can't think of one.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing an official telecommuting policy that allows employees the option to work remotely full time or most of the time.
