    Former Employee - Associate Creative Director in Washington, DC

    I worked at WPP Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The most collegial place I've worked in terms of people. Everyone was very professional and cordial, even under pressing deadlines. They even had an "alumni get together" for former employees which reveals a bit about the culture.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours and weekends for pitches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep true to your specialty, which has been pharma.
    If you want to grow beyond that, changing the official name to Wunderman DC wouldn't hurt.

    Pros

    Very dynamic and diverse client environment which enables a great deal of learning. In 2 to 3 years an employee can get 10 years of business experience.

    Cons

    Internal groups are overly independent which cause the wheel to constantly be reinvented. My hours and days of work are often wasted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to improve cooperation across and within operating groups
