Y&R is a leading global marketing communications company, with more than 189 offices in 90+ countries.
Our job is to Resist the Usual – the mission Y&R was founded on in 1923.
We operate as a global boutique; our agencies have the authenticity of their local markets and are empowered to be the best in their market. And at the same time, are unified globally by shared values, resources, and talent.
Y&R is a member of WPP, the world’s largest communications services group.
We are positive. Not as in arrogant. Not as in overconfident.
Not as in we think we have all the answers.
We’re positive. As in open-minded, forward leaning, future focused.
We partner with every imaginable kind of client, in every category, in every arena and medium, all around the world.
And with anyone, company or person, who can add value to the work we do for our clients.
We believe ideas can come from anywhere, and we are always looking for the best talent to join our team of passionate thinkers and makers. Our open and positive culture means we work together to tackle challenges side-by-side. At Y&R we have a phenomenal respect for each other, loyalty to our clients and a love of the agency that makes what we do not simply a career, but a calling.
First things first. And for us, it’s people. In a world that is teeming with technology and fast-paced changes, our insights into people are the path to building brands. People first, of course, also means having the best people. Our people come from different places, have varied life stories, and a wealth of world views. They are energetic, empathetic and enthusiastic. Respectful, resilient and resourceful. All of which helps solve our clients’ greatest challenges.
A real love of this business requires a certain childlike curiosity. At Y&R, we’re committed to fueling that curiosity with ongoing development, training and skills-based learning to help you succeed and grow in the workplace. We partner with everyone from Lynda.com to Mindgym to provide you with the best live and ‘on demand’ training options in the business.
I worked at Young & Rubicam full-time (More than a year)
Some of the best people to work with and great agency culture. Hours were good, only stayed late from time to time.
Salary was on the lower end for Miami
Advice to Management
Keep it up, you guys helped shape me.
I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Young & Rubicam in March 2014.
Came into the office and spoke with people in HR and on prospective team. Two people in HR asked relatively general questions on resume, while prospective team members asked strategy-specific questions. Received informal offer on way out of office. Followed up with HR and submitted formal application for internship, then received offer letter. Signed and started a month afterwards.
Attempted to negotiate but was unsuccessful.
