I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

    Pros

    You get to work with big name clients so vendors are constantly wanting to woo you with gifts and lunches.

    Cons

    Literally everything else. Poor upper management who cares nothing about their employees. Many employees last less than a year. There is a reason that Maxus has a bad rep in the industry - expect to work 12+ hours daily and work on the weekends. Do not expect any appropriate training.
