    Get into the "club" or forget about Wunderman.

    Pros

    At Wunderman, the goal is always about the 15% increase in profit. If you meet the criteria, you are safe and secured. if you don't, the "ax" comes down really hard. Although, the profit criteria is difficult to obtain, the compensation and benefits are at or above industry standards. The office tried to do the "right" thing for the STAR performers.

    Cons

    Political nightmare...is the word that comes to mind. Unless you are in the "club", you are not appreciated or promoted in timely manner. The only way to get into the "club" is to think and act like the "club" members. If you disagree, your career is not recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate down to lower level on an ongoing basis. Be honest!

    Pros

    The people that are still there are fun to work with. The company is in a rebuilding period which could be attractive to some people.

    Cons

    Because they are rebuilding, there's not enough staff to work on the projects. This can cause tension and delays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The staff does understand that the company is changing. However, they want you to acknowledge the layoffs and how it's benefiting the restructuring.

    Pros

    You get to work with big global accounts. There are some talented people.

    Cons

    There is no structure or organization. People are confused, no process. Expect you to work 12hr work days EVERY DAY! Most Senior management gone within months of my experience...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your people, there is no guidance as far as accounts, bad communication with clients.

    Pros

    Generally the people are good to work with. For me personally, the work that I do is challenging. High profile clients.

    Cons

    Compensation is terrible. No raises in 5 years. Computers are old. Executive management only gives lip service to solving morale issues. Executive management has no interest in day-to-day processes and how to improve efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management has to stop sitting in their offices and get out on the floor and see how things work so that they can make informed decisions about how to fix the internal issues.
