Mission: We use guile, cunning and smart thinking to gain an unfair advantage. To reach those who don’t want to be reached. To create a difference where there is none. To punch above the media spend. And, of course, to sell.
Former Greenhouse interns get real about interning at GTB, the world of advertising, and the future of Detroit. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vQpsg
Come for the opportunities. Stay for the people.
We’re a dynamic global communications agency, collaborating across virtually every medium. Among our ranks, you’ll find designers, writers, thinkers, coders, strategists…and the list goes on. What sets us apart is our people. We prize talent over ego and believe great ideas can come from anyone. We’re a product of our Detroit roots, and it shows in our drive to work hard, rise to tough challenges and create work that makes a difference. We’re also part of the WPP Group, with almost 200,000 employees in more than 3000 offices across 112 countries. If you’re multi-talented and excited about what you do, we’d love to meet you.
Granted we have a lot of fun at GTB. But ultimately, we roll up our sleeves and make ads. Good ones, too. They tend to make our clients really happy and drive sales up and win awards and...well take a look.
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
Collaboration, community and plenty of Halloween candy
We’re a global organization, but we like to think local, too. Our team regularly reaches out to the community in socially conscious ways like [INSERT NAME] and offers support to budding small businesses.
Employees are also encouraged to create their own work culture through Engage, a grassroots employee-driven program that gives people the chance to collaborate and drive initiatives they care about. It’s a fantastic way to work on different projects, meet new friends and stay inspired. Oh, and we throw some pretty great parties.
Internship and Returnship
We invest in talent.
We’re passionate about fostering talent, whether it’s up-and-coming or re-emerging.
Greenhouse, our quarterly intern program, provides real-world experience and entry-level opportunities in over 40 disciplines, from creative and branding to strategy and analytics. Many of our interns go on to become full-time GTB employees.
As part of our efforts to address this inequity in the workforce, we offer a quarterly 10-week “Returnship” program. The goal of the program is to give women who’ve temporarily paused their careers a chance to get back into the workforce.
I worked at GTB full-time
The people were very helpful and open to all ideas. They were very easy-going if you stayed on top of your work!
Compensation, lack of ability to move up in company.
