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

    Pros

    I've worked with IPG for 5+ years as an independent contractor and was very pleased to become a full time employee. It's the type of organization that recognizes hard work and dedication. I've worked with over a dozen organizations during my career and I haven't found a better group of co-workers and management than what I've found here.

    Cons

    They're a little slow to react at times, but if you're patient, they'll respond in the way they should!

    Too many groups, creating lack of communication and continuity. Lack of a common vision for teams to come together on.
