I have been working at Wunderman as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

A mix of talented creative people make this a good place to spend your time.

Cons

The place is run by account, seemingly, and doesn't seem to have a coherent vision of who they are or where they want to go - it is reflected in the work.

Advice to Management

Lots of Jrs, lots of Chiefs - no one in between to offer real creative direction or to push the work to the next level.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Wunderman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pitch like pros, always looking for a "big idea." Very bad at executing those ideas, strategically and creatively. Great at finding genuinely talented junior staff, but susceptible to bullsh*t artists at most higher levels. Data group is solid, but spends time massaging bad results.

    Cons

    Completely unable to deliver on promises made in pitches. Waste too much time in meetings and morale/profile building activities, to detriment of client work. People rewarded for sucking up, not results.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time (and allow staff to focus) on real projects, before the client is walking out the door.

    "Not a good choice for developers since they don't let you write code."

    I worked at Wunderman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They're generous with the PTO.

    Cons

    It's just a staffing company with a marketing focus. They don't actually consult.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the politicking and give the developers some real IT resources.
