      Great Entry Level Company

      Pros

      Mindshare is a great entry level company. In some of the smaller US locations you get great exposure to clients, campaigns and the overall media process. Post-COVID, there are now remote opportunities that didn't exist before. It's a very "work hard, play hard" environment and overall the culture it pretty good.

      Cons

      There are no commissions, no bonuses and you are hardly get paid out for overtime, and that's only offered at the associate level. It's rumored leadership gets bonuses but no money ever sees it's way down to smaller employees. It's also pretty easy to hit a ceiling. Promotions are only easy if someone above you leaves or if they can write more money into client scope which isn't likely.

      Pros

      flexible working environment, during 2020 and on have been able to work remote. Agency made effort to keep current employees and not lay off junior talent unlike other similar media agencies.

      Cons

      none specific to Mindshare, just the typical downsides of the media world which still apply here

      Pros

      Dedicated workers, good culture, breadth of clients

      Cons

      They don't promote internally as often as they should; and when they do, it seems they do not offer salaries as high as they do for external hires. Poor review process that does not set employees up for success

      Pros

      I’ve grown exponentially in this role and worked with really great people. They helped me learn a ton.

      Cons

      Salary is a little low and there are long hours. 9-6 is the normal work day and I’ve never taken a lunch break.

      Great first job out of college

      Pros

      Learned a lot very quickly, work with a small team of very friendly and knowledgeable people, and because it is an international company, made a lot of connections outside of the LA office and US

      Cons

      I hoped that the entry salary would be higher, but you have the opportunity to make overtime pay and if you do a good job in your first year are likely to be promoted fairly quickly
