Here are some examples of how we turn these beliefs into programs for YOU!

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

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!

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 2017

Banding Together for Wunderman Day

At such a large global agency, it can be difficult to feel a real sense of community, but Wunderman Day is how we make sure our 10,000+ employees around the world feel connected.

This year’s theme, Band Together, was a true testament to the power of our network as we celebrate a year of growth through partnerships, acquisitions, new business and award-winning work. There is a lot of work that goes into Wunderman Day: shipping culture boxes all over the planet, contributing songs to the official playlist, building buzz leading up to event, and just killing it on social (we’re looking at you, Austin and Dhaka!). We never could have done it without our amazing Wunderman Day event manager, Michelle Curtis, and the help of all the office leads and social media stars who really went above and beyond to ensure this year’s Wunderman Day was another overwhelming success.

    I have been working at Wunderman full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    While there are many reasons people love working here, a few stand out to me in particular:

    Donuts.
    Diversity.
    Danielle.

    Also, there's a bunch of other things that make it awesome to work here. I get unlimited post-it notes and the coffee machine makes hot chocolate for whenever you're feeling frisky. Also it's great that they respect your time outside of work and there are plenty of opportunities to do work you care about. It's legit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wunderman (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume via the Wunderman website on a Friday night and first thing Monday morning I was contacted by Genevieve, the Wunderman recruiter, to schedule a screener call to discuss my background. Genevieve was not only a complete pleasure to work with, but she was attentive, quick to move the process along and eager to fill the role.
    Interviewing while still working for your current employer can be stressful, but Genevieve made the process seamless by making sure we were scheduling interview times with the team that fit perfectly with my work schedule without raising any unnecessary red flags with my employer.
    Following the screener interview, Genevieve facilitated a phone interview with two account leads in New York, an in-person interview with the individual I was taking the place of during maternity leave, as well as an in-person interview on-site with the client.
    Genevieve was eager to hear about my experiences with the team at each turn and was fast to pass along a very well-received final decision from the team. Following initial offer, the paperwork process was quick and efficient with the ball kept moving!
    Genevieve's professionalism, approachable personality and clear passion for connecting individuals to the right role is a true asset to her organization! I truly enjoyed working with her!
