Pros

The pay is OK... That's it!

Cons

The IT group for IPG varies from building to building each with its own set of IT folks. The management however 9 times out of 10 are NOT technically knowledgeable at all. The management do not have a clue and spend a great deal of time requesting a status instead of allowing you a chance to complete your work. Even though this is an advertising firm, the demand on the IT dept. is as high as if you were working for a Hedge Fund (just without the pay). Sr. management does not care about the IT satff and as far as they are concern you are roaches there to do there bidding. "Just get it done" is the motto, you mean nothing, you have a job so be happy.

Advice to Management

Instead of wasting talented people in the field replace the "YES-MAN" management you have. You may find that you get a lot more done and spend alot less money!
