    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at GroupM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, relatively nice office, downtown location, work from home policy, solid amount of time off for holidays/vacation/sick leave, work life balance was not an issue, occasional events from external vendors or sponspored by other agencies and clients ie health and wellness with free food, 5 minute massages, giveaways....

    Cons

    Very low pay for entry level positions, HR is not at all involved in day to day life, I only dealt with them when hired and when leaving- maybe normal for a huge company but would be nice to have had more interaction, many managers seem unable or unwilling to train employees due to their busy schedules or inability to communicate with others, upper management no transparency, in my department they complained about certain issues but didn't hear out the team's explanations as to why the issues existed or work with them to help resolve the issues, communication at least with my team felt discouraged, did not feel like I could go to my manager with issues or concerns, absolutely no culture whatsoever- besides the holiday party, no sense of feeling like a team, no camaraderie, no sense of employee appreciation, assigned lunch hour, no meetings or performance reviews to get a sense of how you are doing...it was depressing a lot of the time at least in my department.
