Pros

GMR provides a great opportunity for new graduates.
You gain a ton of experience right out of the gates.
People are nice, welcoming, energetic and for the most part, happy to be there.
The environment encourages creativity and new ways of doing things.

Cons

You aren't given much of a work/life balance. This is okay when you are starting out, especially because the firm is comprised of a lot of fun people, so you may not mind that your work life is also your personal life. If this isn't attractive to you, GMR might not be a fit.
Salaries are below market rates.
Some people can't handle the "fun" environment and don't operate professionally.

Advice to Management

Most new employees are very excited to work at GMR when they start, despite the lower salaries. Most employees leave frustrated because they put their hearts into the company but don't see much opportunity for growth or pay increases. All in all, I think GMR gives new grads a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of an exciting industry, but not as many people stay too long after that.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with major clients and brands, great work experience and abilty to get your feet wet and develop professional skills that will benefit you wherever you end up. Depending on your role and project, you get lots of variety so the job stays interesting. Great for people that like to travel.

    Cons

    Pay is very low, even on a small market basis, career advancement within the company is very limited and handled in a very poor fashion. Employees are not always given the support they need to do the job to their very best.

    Advice to Management

    Great company overall but know when your time is up. Don't expect more because they are not always willing to give.
