    I worked at Interpublic Group as an intern (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Relatively light responsibilities, but with great opportunities to learn if you are willing to go the extra mile. Always something to do.

    Cons

    For the intern position, nothing in particular stands out as a con. Some might consider the lack of supervision a con but it's always been what you make of it.

    Advice to Management

    While we did have some good interaction with managers, interns were often left alone to do their own thing. Being able to interact and get more feedback would have been a plus.

    I have been working at Interpublic Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, fun and innovative work environment, training and development programs, very high standards for creative work, great healthcare and retirement benefits. Also generous parental leave.

    Cons

    A lot of internal politics makes advancing very difficult. Can feel like high school at times. Majority of staff is in their 20s so free drinks and free food make up for not so great salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Reward the ones who are truly pulling their weight and not the ones who are masters of bullshitting their way to the top.

    Pros

    Very friendly environment, flexible in meeting the needs of employees, tries to make employees happy with regular parties, managers try to understand employees and help them perform well.

    Cons

    Limited advancement opportunities, does not seek new and innovative ways to enhance employee relations, many managers can be short-sighted and unwilling to seek alternative solutions to regular problems.

    Advice to Management

    Be more willing to learn from low-level employees, seek innovative ways to engage and develop employees' skills and abilities, and explore creative ways to better listen to the needs of employees.

    I have been working at Interpublic Group full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, great schedule, good colleagues and a responsive management team. It has lots of flexibility in terms of working abroad, being flexible with your tasks, and working with different teams.

    Cons

    It's slow to advance through the company unless there is attrition above you. The marketing business is by its nature unstable. There is lots of turnover so you're not likely to have the same boss or the same colleagues for very long.

    Advice to Management

    Be in communication with your employees more frequently. Have a long term goal that you can share with your team, and connect with them about how they're fulfilling it more than once a year.
