    Pros

    TMP has massive resources. We had creative people who were not only super talented but who totally valued the client and were happy to step in help. There are no Prima Donnas at TMP but you will not work with a collection of smarter people anywhere!

    Cons

    Everyone in my office worked a 10 hour day or longer. I wish the company could provide more flexible work schedule options or the ability work from home. That would have helped tremendously.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I hope you can offer more flexible work schedules in the future

    I worked at TMP Worldwide Advertising full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    life in the office was fun while I was there and since I'm still good friends with a lot of people there, I know they continue to live life like the 21st century equivalents of Don Draper and company.

    Cons

    despite working in recruitment advertising and talking all day about why you should work for a client because they offer great work-life balance, open communications, etc., TMP management is surprisingly tone deaf about actually valuing those ideals. HR is basically non-existent; I was only aware that someone held that title when they sent me an unfriendly letter explaining how they were cutting my hours in half. I could probably go on all day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there were so many vice presidents when I was there, I don't know if anybody in charge had any real idea what was happening in the trenches. as much as I liked most everybody I worked with, politics and favoritism definitely left some people shouldering more of the burden than others.

    Pros

    Leadership is supportive and my team locally is very close. All jump in to help as needed. No man/woman left behind! The offices share ideas and success across the country. We have monthly all company calls to keep us all apprised on the goals of the company, how were doing with achieving our goals and advances in technology.

    Cons

    We are growing fast...there are always some growing pains. Not many roles to grow into locally.
