    I Interned at Mindshare in Chicago last summer and loved the people and culture. Their intern program was amazing.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsThere are some very knowledgeable individuals at Mindshare who are willing to share pass along their expertise to those they work with. Fun and upbeat culture.

    ConsWould have liked to see more cross-functional team work on a day-to-day basis to ensure a more cohesive client strategy.

    Nice work/life balance, low pay, cliquey

    Associate (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros- nice life / work balance for entry level
    - perks (parties, events, goodies, food) are nice

    Cons- cliquey
    - pay is too low for someone to survive in a city like NY
    - no growth opportunities
    - transferring to other departments is difficult
    - happy to have entry level people at the same level

    Advice to Senior Management- needs to put in place a training program for specific accounts, instead of having a general "know the company" training.
    - needs to foster a more collaborative environment within different teams

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsAmazing teams that's genuinely work great together

    ConsPay is sub par, therefore a lot of good talent ends up leaving for money elsewhere

    Make sure to offer better deals to best talent to prevent them from going elsewhere, don't d it once they already have another offer.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great experience for media planners

    Senior Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsLot of client access for junior members, great structure and rigor to planning that will serve your well starting your career.
