    Pros

    Well, they sure do offer great benefits! We were so excited to be a part of an amazing, global firm.

    You may never get to use those benefits if they acquire the company you are working for because they take all your clients and show you the door.

    Pros

    Interpublic Group is a great place to obtain experience in IT, from networking, help desk, troubleshooting, to development, there's great opportunites here to learn.

    Cons

    Much of the internship experience lacked shadowing and context. Often, interns are expected to either know how to do a task, or have to fend for themselves and scour the internet for answers to possibly easy questions.

    Advice to Management

    Interns need guidance! Make sure to balance a hands on approach to solving new problems while also demonstrating and guiding them in solving mundane or trivial routines.

    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.

    Pros

    Great managers. Great exposure to high executives. Very knowledgeable staff, great environment, and excellent HR representation. Had a 9-5pm schedule with great pay. Conveniently located next to Bryant Park.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth. Senior roles tend to jump to another company to become managers. Work can get repetitive at times. Not much bad things to say. I would work here again.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Training classes are useful and should be implemented more often. There should be opportunities for transfer within IPG.
