The latest conversations about Advertising
I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

Role at WPP OpenX new company ? I was approached for regional role. I’m still wrapping my brain around the model. Seems good? Always hard to say from ppt slides vs reality. Any thoughts or insights? What’s the culture like? Vision? Leadership? Any pros/cons appreciated

- One of the best groups of coworkers. I've made several good friends here that I keep in touch with though we've all left. Everyone is game to help and lift each other up. - Well-recognized name in the affiliate business meant that publishers often were excited to work with me, and it looks good on my resume. - Exposure to so many different tactics, networks, and types of clients meant I became very well-versed in affiliate in a relatively short period of time.
- Your happiness is entirely dependent on the type of manager you get, and I did not have a good one. My days were spent desperately trying to make up for the support my manager refused to provide, and I often worked hours and hours of overtime to compensate. - Refusal to listen to employee feedback, especially in regards to circle account formation. I went from around 4-6 accounts to 12, and was expected to do this in the middle of a high sales period. Somehow, this was supposed to fit into my 40-hr/week schedule, despite the fact that my circle was constantly understaffed. I was honest with feedback on this and really did try to make it work, because I cared deeply about my team and clients. Any feedback I provided needed to have a lengthy paper trail of backup, or have a monetary impact, and at the end it was so clear they really did not care that I was working close to between 50-60 hours a week to make up for all the extra work they put on me and my teammates. - They outsource a bunch of the lower-level work to people in the Philippines that work ALL NIGHT for slave wages. This was a huge sticking point to me as it was a program that started during my time at AP, and I felt it went against all of AP's philosophies of 'people first.' They refuse to publicize this decision as well, and keep it very hush hush from clients. A good tip is that if you're keeping a practice from being publicly-known, it's probably not a practice you should be involved in! -The bottom line is that AP used to be a top-notch affiliate agency full of the best talent, clients, and practices. This has slowly been shifting as other agencies start poaching clients who will pay less for better service, pay their people better for less work, and who care more about their people. So many people were leaving to other agencies when I left, that I honestly don't know how AP was continuing to service the clients that stayed with them.1
