Mindshare – Why Work For Us?


undefined


Mindshare is a global network of over 7000 people (116 offices in 86 countries) dedicated to being different and creating awesome results for our clients.

Mindshare is the first new global company that WPP created. We were born with the ambition to change the world through media. Our birth in 1997 shifted the focus from media as a pure commodity to media as a change agent. Our ambition was to go beyond the traditional media descriptors of 'Optimise, Capitalise, Maximise.' We will not be defined by the formulaic definitions of media. 

Our role in this world is to help clients grow their business and to become their lead business partner and we achieve this through a culture of original thinking driven by speed, teamwork and provocation. 

Mindshare is part of GroupM, which oversees the media investment management sector for WPP, the world’s leading communications services group.

If you value speed, teamwork and provocation, then you belong at Mindshare... Check out our 'Work for us' page for more info on how to find current openings, what we look for and why you should work at Mindshare.

Throughout history Original Thinkers have changed the world. In media, it was us. We rewrote the rules in 1997 and we want you to help us do it again. If you value speed, teamwork and provocation, then you belong in the Mindshare family. We'll encourage you to break the rules, knock things down, rebuild them better and reinvent the impossible.  The only question is where do you want to start?

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very informal interview process. Recruiter reached out, phone call and then went to the office to meet the team. The interview was merely a conversation in general about my work past and some about the structure of the team. The interviewers did not seem to have set questions but rather just came in with a copy of my resume. They were all easy to talk to.

    Reasons for Declining

    At the end of the day, the role was good and the pay was competitive. I wanted to move my career in a different direction than pure agency. As a side note, their benefits were not very good.
