Great work atmosphere; stifling career growth

IT (Former Employee)
Omaha, NE

I worked at Interpublic Group full-time for more than 3 years

ProsWork environment is great in the IT area; casual, relaxed and actually fun. Management is easily accessible and provides great support for problems or issues.

ConsCareer growth in IT at the time I was there was non-existent. IT department was under two different VP (Business area and IT area) and neither was on the same page as the other.

Advice to Senior ManagementPut all of your IT under one VP and come up with a cohesive direction on where IT should be going. Develop career paths for those who want to move horizontally or vertically.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
