    I worked at WPP full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I have been @ WPP for over 25 years and had the best time of my life. Experienced growth opportunities. Work-Family life balance was ideal. Was able to help send my children to universities and was able to participate in their activities while contributing to my work responsibilities.

    Cons

    Was very disappointed when the company decided to outsource the IT function but as it turns out it worked out ok, as we became part of IBM, which is the Company to work for if you are into, Watson, Analytics, AI and all those other fabulous technologies.

    Advice to Management

    I had been with the company for many years and even though we made tremendous improvements in upgrading the old systems the past several years, I highly recommend that management decides on making the investment to implement an ERP system.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WPP (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward. I met with the HR team who asked my general questions about my experience and interest. They then communicated with me quickly to set up an interview with the team I would be working with. From there, their communication remained consistent and helpful.
