        Pros

        If you value incentives over paying your bills, this place is great! All jokes aside, management was some of the best. Very understanding and easy to work with. The hybrid schedule is great for flexibility, and the holidays off are great.

        Cons

        That seemed to be the theme throughout IPG. The hybrid schedule and all of the incentives are lovely, but in this economy that doesn't make up for the fact that the pay is low for corporate America. I heard numerous amount of complaints that my peers, and myself, had too much on their plate and not enough pay to compensate.

          Pros

          There are good people at this company and the mental wellness days and unlimited PTO were a plus (although you did feel guilty for taking advantage of those perks).

          Cons

          Pretty much everything else... pay was not proportional to the amount/level of work you had to do. Expectation was to work *all day* into the night... and even then you had to spend extra time "earning" your place in the company with supplemental learning that barely held a candle to what you were actually doing day to day (they say this can be done within company hours but it was almost always done on the weekends). Understaffed, underpaid.

              Management is not great & performance reviews are managed very poorly. Promotions are so difficult with rare career opportunities.

                      I interview with this place about a week and a half ago. I think it went well and in the interview she said the next step would be a writing example, so I did that. Sent it to them the day it was due and haven't heard back since. She did say any next steps would be after thanksgiving since everyone was busy and their calendars full last week. I followed up on Monday with an email, but haven't heard back. Maybe it's taking awhile or should I try again end of week? I would at least like feedback.

                      I was promised a decision made by mid last week. I followed up on Thursday last week and got a response the update is now followed up with the hiring manager and their director and expect hear back by middle of next week. What should I be expecting if it’s delayed on promised update timeline from the hiring manager interview?
