    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.

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

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Excellent PTO.

    Cons

    You'll want to use all of your PTO immediately to get away from the management team. The executive staff seem very kind, but they promote chaos in the name of creativity

    Advice to Management

    Put in some real structure. Grow your performance management program. Spread the love among the staff and not just your directors.
