GROWTH - WE INVEST IN YOU

Wunderman is an exciting place to work, with opportunities for talented people to learn and grow with us in offices around the world.No matter who you are, we believe that everyone needs a work/life balance to truly thrive.We don’t just talk about this, we take action and great pride in providing a balanced and healthy environment—which we believe is good for all of us.We believe in learning, connecting with your colleagues and career development. Here are some examples of how we turn these beliefs into programs for YOU!


A refreshing new approach to employee reviews, YOU Time is your time to discuss career and life goals with your manager. It's also a time to recognize important accomplishments. YOU Time is our innovative global program that encourages growth at work and in your personal life.

CONVERSATIONS MATTER

Your success matters. Rather than conducting traditional reviews in airless meeting rooms, managers at Wunderman take their employees out of the office for real one-on-one time.

ONE DAY

Every year, all around the world, everyone takes a day to participate in community service activities.

No matter the cause, we believe in giving back to our community and our people.

CREATING CONNECTIONS

Travel is an inspiration, sparking great ideas, new thinking and deeper personal connections.

That’s why we give everyone a chance to win a week-long trip to visit offices in other cities or countries.

 

A dynamic learning environment, Wunderman University gives everyone access to a wide range of courses, tutorials, training, and educational resources.

Use Wunderman University to build your knowledge and expertise, in order to fulfill personal and professional goals.

 

 

YOU TIME

YOU Time is an ongoing effort across Wunderman’s network to support professional development and personal interests. We recognize that to succeed as a business and a culture, we need to support both the personal and professional sides of our people.

We introduced Because Conversations Matter as part of YOU Time. And we asked managers and employees to go off-site and have an open dialogue about goals and what’s needed to be successful. Building a culture where we are inspired to be our best selves at work every day is only the beginning.

Wunderman Unlimited is a program that showcases the incredible and interesting people that work within our agency. Every week we highlight an employee from across the globe calling out what makes them unique. Wunderman allows our employees to bring their whole selves to work and we celebrate it! Check out their stories below.

Laptop in one hand and passport in the other, Stacey Neumann's strategy brain has flown her around the world – from meetings in Paris, workshops in China and emoji pitches at SXSW. Today you’ll find her at Wunderman UK, but who knows where the next brief will take her.

When she’s not playing ball or spearheading creative at Wunderman Chicago, Account Supervisor Stephanie Rivera is inspiring kids at local nonprofits like World Sport Chicago. On and off the court, Steph’s motto never changes: “Settling is not in my nature and neither is mediocrity.”


An open mind opens doors all around the world! Just ask Tomas, a copywriter from Wunderman These Days. He flew to Dubai to pitch winning ideas and now the biggest thing on his mind is surviving Cannes.

From face masks to front office, former beauty therapist Khumo proves you don’t need an ad background to make it in advertising 💪 Today she’s a community manager at Cerebra, an agency where “people are at the very core of everything that happens”.

As a strategist at Wunderman Austin, Jerry Roback knows that the best solutions come from thinking differently. That’s how he founded Anti-Grain Foods, a natural food company that turns fruit and veg into alternative baking ingredients. You’re one smart apple Jerry.

Talent needs no translation when it comes to Marissa Garcia Eguia, Head of Interactive at Wunderman Dubai. Hailing from Mexico, she turned culture shock into conversation by mastering the language and embracing her new role.

San Sharma is a tech editor at Wunderman UK and a TV presenter at London Live and the BBC. A man of many departments, San often leads lunchtime lessons on all things robot, AI and what’s next. If it’s tech, talk to San.

Monica is a HR manager at Wunderman España and our Queen of Hearts. Not only has she looked after the agency like family for 18 years, but she often collects food, clothes and toys for local NGOs and charities. Here’s to more humans like Monica.

Wunderman Los Angeles welcomed marketing analyst Jodie with open arms when she moved from Wunderman China. With 200 offices in 70 markets, where will you work at Wunderman? 

OOO could mean anywhere in the world for senior designer Reginald, who travels to abandoned buildings and up mountains for These Days clients. Where will Wunderman take you? 

Making yourself heard can change your career. Like Brittany Nilson from Wunderman Chicago, who switched from HR to creative just by speaking up about her passions. Where will you work at Wunderman?

YOUR TIME TO SHINE

We want you to feel that when you come to work, you come to make a difference. Not just to us, to the agency, the date to day doings, to our clients. To you as well. The stuff you enjoy and want to do more of. The things that make you tick, The ideas that get you out of bed in the morning. The things that drive you. We want you to be able to fulfil all of your ambitions and play to your strengths, personal and professional.

WUNDERMAN DAY

We may have 7,000 heartbeats, but on December 1, we’ll all come together to celebrate as one. The Wunderman network spans 175 offices in 60 countries, with offices everywhere from Stockholm to Santiago, from Seattle to Sydney. At such a large global agency, it can be difficult to feel a real sense of community, but #WundermanDay is one way we make sure we don’t have that problem. http://bit.ly/2fEGV2d
