    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.


  9. "Senior Vice President/Account Executive"

    I worked at Interpublic Group full-time

    Pros

    Automomy to manage client on my own. Budgets, staffing, planning is independent. It is also good to have sister agencies to partner with when there are specific services that are needed to complete an assignemtn

    Cons

    Pressure for review is very intense at IPG. There are constant budget meetings where senior management and the accounting team review the budget in detail once per month. It feels very overwhelming with 10 people questiioning the numbers.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice to have a less corporate conglomerate feel to the agencies. It feels like we are just a big machine versus being part of an independent agency. Also the salaries are all determined by the corporate HR group with little ability to reward for superior performance.

    Pros

    Good energy and mostly nice people
    Decent benefits
    Strong commitment to diversity
    Relatively flat hierarchy
    Performance good after turnaround
    Fairly flexible (depends on department)

    Cons

    Some departments stressed such as finance
    New offices awful

    Advice to Management

    Try to offer corporate employees some of the same benefits as agencies such as stimulating physical environment, holiday time off
    Work on building corporate culture more
    More diversity at the top
    Invest in training and development for corporate employees
