    Pros

    A company finally going through the changes that were envisioned 3-4 years ago, exciting time. They are bringing in some of the right people on different teams and agencies to set them up for success.

    Cons

    Keeping leadership who may not be helping move the needle from a recruitment perspective. Great products and new business comes from bringing in the right people = more hiring. Sometimes we don't get that support from hiring managers.

    I worked at GroupM full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits, and work life balance. Friendly co-workers.

    Cons

    This is a very large organization and you will feel like a number rather than an employee at times. The overhead and politics that come with large companies has become too large a problem and is overshadowing and distracting any real work that gets done. There is a desperate need for direction from the top as this is damaging many teams who would otherwise produce great results.
