I worked at WPP full-time (More than 10 years)
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.
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.
I applied online. I interviewed at WPP.
First, they ask you to fill up an online application. Other than the standard questions there were some that were more interested in your thought process, your viewpoints on certain trends in the current market, and your moral standpoint. It is quite lengthy so you should spend considerable time thinking and answering the questions. If you get through this round, you will be invited to answer a question through video. You get unlimited tries and your answer must be within 2 minutes. Again this question was more to get a good sense of your character and thought process rather than any marketing-focused questions. If you get through it's followed by either a face-to-face or phone interview depending on your location. Lastly, you will be flown to London to meet their top management for a final interview.
