The United Way is "Making Greater Detroit Greater" by focusing on the future of Detroit -- its children. The campaign celebrates iconic Detroiters (as kids) who have positively contributed to Greater Detroit - bringing hope, solutions or accomplishments to the community

People Mover

For decades, the mainstream media has colored Detroit as dangerous and decaying. The truth is Detroit right now is just this vast, enormous canvas where anything imaginable can be accomplished. The city is teeming with local and international artists, creators, writers, and entrepreneurs who are finding their inspiration in Detroit.


GTB created the "People Mover" art show to showcase the many talented individuals who make Detroit such a special place to live and work. This short film captures 24 local artists, cooks, thinkers and musicians who came together one day in April and turned the People Mover train into an art venue that circled the city they call 'home'.

Movember:

Each November, the men of GTB put their razors down and grow glorious, enviable mustaches on behalf of Movember – a global, month-long fund-raising endeavor that aims to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, specifically prostate cancer and other cancers that affect men.


This year, 28 agency members, or "Mo Bros”, formed a Movember fundraising team inspired by their mustache icon called “The Ron Swansons”. Through the month they groomed, trimmed, and waxed their way into the annals of fine moustachery.


By month’s end, “The Ron Swansons” mustache-growing efforts raised upwards of $8,762 for the cause and the team was ranked among the top 185 nationally.


Plus, they looked really, really good.

Greening of Detroit

The Greening of Detroit is a 501(c) (3) not for profit organization established in 1989 to guide and inspire the reforestation of Detroit. In 2006, a new vision was established, expanding The Greening’s mission to guide and inspire others to create a greener Detroit: through planting, educational programs, environmental leadership, advocacy, and by building community capacity.


Green Infrastructure is a term used to describe the network of planned and managed green spaces which work together to benefit a community’s social, economic and environmental health. Our Green Infrastructure programming began with organized tree and shrub planting projects in parks and along city streets and grew to include broad scale projects specifically designed to maximize benefits to the people living in the neighborhoods where we work.


We work with hundreds of community partners in Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park to improve parks, beautify neighborhoods and create useful landscapes from vacant land. And our involvement doesn’t stop there. We continue to affect long-term planning for greening and revitalization in Detroit by lending a hand and offering our expertise to government agencies and corporations throughout the city.


We wouldn’t feel comfortable calling ourselves GTB without being one of Detroit’s biggest supporters—and all lot of this work went to benefit the arts, education, non profits and small businesses within the city limits.


In 2011 alone, we produced pro-bono work for:


The Detroit Symphony Orchestra, College for Creative Studies, WDET, The Greening of Detroit, Detroit Children’s Choir, McClure’s Pickles, Cass Corridor Beauty Products, Russell Street Deli, Sugar House, Detroit Dirt, Canine to Five, Tour de Troit, Signal Return and more.


One of the perks of being large is that you can make more than a small difference at a very local level.

    I have been working at GTB full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    GTB is a great agency, with great people, doing work for a great client. Very smart people, with a genuine interest in the business and doing the best work for Ford. As part of WPP, the company has great benefits and a generous holiday schedule. Also, lots of fun activities like Spooktacular at Halloween, regular Stereo 550 concerts (Neon Trees, Tegan & Sara, Rachel Platten, and more) , Bring your Parents to Work Day (in addition to Bring your Children to Work Day), and many more.

    Cons

    I have worked at GTB for about 2 years, and I have been fortunate enough to not experience many, if any, cons. There are politics, but every company has politics.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work; and maybe consider bringing Summer Fridays back, even if a condensed version, i.e. 2-3 days between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

    Benefits and Payroll Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dearborn, MI

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GTB (Dearborn, MI) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter was awesome... phone interview and then an in person interview. The decision making process was long. I felt that I was being strung along. I interviewed and it took about 3-4 weeks for a decision to made. The recruiter kept in touch the whole time. I didn't get the job because the other candidate has advertising experience. I don't think that should have been the decision factor especially if it's not directly related to the job function... very disappointing!!
