    Pros

    Big, global clients and opportunities to learn and grow in a nurturing environment. There's so many client and new business opportunities if you raise your hand and get involved. These clients demand the best, and there's no room for those who don't contribute to the max.

    Cons

    Challenging to manage time zones and meetings. Tough, demanding clients where you have to bring your A game every day. Unlike other agencies, there's no place to hide.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more top-down communication. Making people work hard to understand what's happening and what opportunities exist could be improved.

    Pros

    Work-life balance. If you want to see a place where nobody is left at 5:01pm, this is it.

    Cons

    Management is lost and out of touch, with no plan. Old agency, old model, old people at the top scared to make changes for fear of losing their cushy jobs. Clients walking out the door. It's like watching a train wreck in progress. The work sucks too.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. Or wait till Omnicom cleans house and fires you all.

    Pros

    Great culture, great work -life balance. Company always is willing to want to make things right with clients.

    Cons

    Lacks a training program for new hires. Tries to make clients happy by overselling and under delivering putting pressure on everyone within the business unit causing negative impacts within the culture.

    Advice to Management

    Seek out the right leaders for your leadership roles. Understand who Integer is as an organziation and how you will be able to truly support the client business needs instead of trying to promise everything and cut yourselves thin, leaving your associates miserable.

    Pros

    Non, the company is collapsing under the leadership. Account and Creative leadership are so out of touch with the company. The Agency if going to close its doors soon and the leadership still only care if their cars stay warm in their private garage. The president and the ECD are a complete Joke and only care about themselves and what drink they are taking a picture of on there boondoggle work trips.

    Cons

    The entire leadership must change! Omnicom needs to get a clue and start over or get rid of the company. There is not one employee I know that likes this place. Its basically a job not a career.

    Advice to Management

    Quit and let the company start over. Cut your losses, fire the President and the ECD and get some leaders that people actually care about and who care about their employees rather than themselves. It's a sinking ship if a change is not made, so my advice is run away and do not try to work here. You will be miserable!

    I worked at Integer Group full-time

    Pros

    Some of the employees are talented and have great intentions

    Cons

    - No local management...try to run from Denver
    - Denver management disconnected, can't close new business, and think they know it all
    - Much of the talent has either left the building or been let go
    - No plans for growth, got rid of new biz person...rid of media...rid of Insights/Strategy....no real plans to replace
    - Environment is toxic

    Advice to Management

    Take 2 weeks off and then quit. Denver has ruined this. Might as well shut it down as everyone feels that they plan to move existing business to Denver office. Very sad

    I worked at Integer Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Once upon a time there were great clients, an incredible office building and a good culture (great culture if you were one of the president's pets).

    Cons

    Trust is foundational to creating a strong team environment. Unfortunately, you couldn't tell who was trustworthy and who was not. Senior leaders had eyes and ears everywhere. And if you were on the wrong side of an issue , there were very few opportunities to thrive.

    Advice to Management

    The advice I would give has already come to fruition ... president, CFO and other leaders are gone. A fresh start is just what this agency needs regain the incredible vibe it once had.

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

    Pros

    Maybe one or two decent people.

    Cons

    Pathetic excuse for an agency. I can only speak for the Dallas office, however it was by far and away the worst career move I have ever made coming here. The lack of professionalism is at an all time high, senior management has no respect for those that they believe cannot do anything to benefit their individual interests. The pay is laughable, truly - they will push empty promises until they inevitably drive you out.

    They put more emphasis on being a "cool" agency, with a drinking culture in an attempt to disguise their massive failures such as lost business year after year and painfully obvious disinterest in the welfare of their employees. Senior executives are disrespectful and have loose lips. Unless you have personal connections that will propel their success, don't expect to receive any opportunities.

    The day I left was the happiest I have been in two years.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize the welfare of your employees, listen to them and exercise DISCRETION.
