    I worked at ID Media Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    the people, assistants, and medium level people that work here are helpful, energetic, and this place is great place to learn alot of the media world. The hours are not too bad as buyers, and vacation time is if anything too much.

    Cons

    Management is focused on getting new business and does not appreciate good workers, promotions are based on opportunity and not what is deserved, and the company is shrinking. The pay is on the lower end of what is industry standard.

    Advice to Management

    appreciate good workers more, push more initiatives to make the culture fun and comfortable while still pushing for good work, promote those that deserve promotions.

    I worked at ID Media Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people overall are pretty friendly to work with and the company is accomodating with working from home as needed.

    Supervisors are genuinely invested in educating entry levels in order to get them to the Buying level in experience.

    Amount of PTO is pretty reasonable.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than industry standard and management is always looking to add more work without adding more people to share it.

    Assistants tend to do 90% of the work of those they work under (Buyers not at a Supervisor level) which tends to cause entry level Assistants to burn out rather quick since they are doing all the work for a third of the pay.

    Everything is an ASAP deadline even if it is due a week out which results in a significant amount of undue stress.

    Be very careful with this company. After over a decade of operations, the Chicago branch was shut down abruptly with a one month notice as a result of cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Set clear divisions in responsibilities between your Assistants and your Buyers; they are not slaves to do all the Buyer's work.

    Avoid avoid if you are part of any minority
    Very clicky-if you aren't part of the popular kids crew don't think you will ever get a promotion

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those bigoted and trump-qese people and then maybe people will take your agency serious

    Pros

    Great people, and location, I mean it is above Manhattan Mall. Cannot beat that. The people are somewhat nice, at least my team was.

    Cons
