    Best Job I've Ever Had As Computer Programmer

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsManagement 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.

    ConsI can't think of one.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Best place to work in Omaha

    Human Resources (Former Employee)
    Omaha, NE

    ProsDynamic company and interesting industry
    Great culture at Omaha office
    Ability to participate in global projects
    Great benefits and TONS of time off
    Very casual dress in Omaha - jeans everyday and shorts in the summer
    Really enjoyed the people I worked with - best office atmosphere I've experienced
    I would HIGHLY recommend IPG

    ConsNothing major. Increased transparency from senior management and less politics when you deal with corporate in NY.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe corporate focus on diversity was a little over the top and could be toned down a bit.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Place to Intern

    Intern (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsBeing only an intern, it was a great experience and all of the employees there were very helpful. The work environment was by far the best reason to work for Interpublic Group.

    ConsPersonally, there were not many downsides of working at Interpublic Group. One of the few things that come to mind is that it is a very competitive environment and not every job is secure. It you are not carrying your work load up to their expectations then it will not be surprising for them to quickly find you a replacement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
