    I worked at Interbrand full-time

    Pros

    Working with worldwide brands & the higher level compensation is hard to beat.

    Cons

    Egos at every turn. Absolutely zero respect for work life balance therefore workaholism is encouraged and sadly awarded. Manipulation & favoritism are everywhere so that equates to bonuses for "cool club". This makes up for a very toxic work environment. On top oft this, there is little to no guidance from managers. The company as a whole is incredibly antiquated in their thinking & processes. Waves of lay offs with absolutely zero notice and it might as well be a nail salon because gossip & innuendo were constant.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about how much you care about your employees and actually care about your employees. Wake up and smell the modern world, your process need to be scraped and rethought from the ground up.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Interbrand full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Strong brand name, but attracts clients looking for safe and uninspiring work
    - Invented Brand Valuation, but like sausage, you don't want to see how it is made.
    - Global network, but offices are selfish so weak at global integration
    - Not a strong work ethic

    Cons

    - Greedy executives who spend a lot of time justifying their jobs instead of creating value
    - Extremely poor employee retention
    - Managing directors are not brand-experts, just office managers with no decision authority
    - Very weak design; commitment to design is all talk

    Advice to Management

    The company manages itself around 5 Ps: People, Products, Partners (clients), Positioning (brand) and Performance (profit). The CEO once said, of the 5 P's, positioning is the most important. I asked why not people. and he said, because people don't make the phone ring.

    Stop saying that brands have the power to change the world, and actually do it.
