    I worked at Interbrand full-time

    Pros

    Fair salaries
    Ok benefits
    Fun travel
    Smart people
    Lots of varied client projects

    Cons

    Company culture is competitive and employees are a bit full of themselves
    Sometimes I questioned the value of what the company delivers to its clients as the business approach doesn't focus on innovative design thinking or experience strategy

    I have been working at Interbrand full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interbrand is great at making employees feel like they matter. Most of the big agencies make people feel like little more than a number, and that feeling alone has big negative consequences. Interbrand is gaining speed once again after a few tough years, but the new talent and leadership under people like Daniel Binns is really taking off. A great place to be!

    Cons

    Sometimes it is hard to create new ways of doing things, and there is definitely a shortage of conference rooms all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Use this time to reassess all possible ways of doing things. Update as many processes as possible, tap into the great new talent that is coming in the door. Utilize them more!

    Pros

    The people are the best.

    Cons

    The pay is insulting.

    Advice to Management

    The culture is great without the input from disconnected leaders. Their role should be recognizing and compensating talent employees who want to stay but feel compelled to leave.

    Pros

    Interbrand genuinely has such wonderful people. On top of that, they have some really great brands as clients, great location, and a fun office environment.

    Cons

    Parent company, Omnicom, has absolutely no respect for compensating employees. Rewards, raises, and promotions are laughable at best, if not few and far between across all departments. There has only been one year of 401K match in the last ten years, if not longer.

    Advice to Management

    Pay. Your. People. What. They're. Worth.

    I worked at Interbrand full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Talented people. Big clients. Great office location.

    Cons

    There is absolutely no leadership or career path development. The last three years have seen terrible revenue losses and it's true: people show their true colors when the chips are down. It's a top heavy organization that is loosing sight of the work and their people in a desperate fight to recoup their losses.

    Advice to Management

    The entire upper management team needs to be replaced. They are sucking the company dry. It's really sad to watch.

    I have been working at Interbrand full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, great clients, great permission with C-suite/marketplace at large esp due to Best Global Brands

    Cons

    Constantly in search for more....sometimes this can get in the way of bringing everyone together toward a common goal

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the market. Listen to your people. The answer lies in that intersection sprinkled with a heavy dose of provocateur.
