    I have been working at Mindshare (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very involved in their Glass Door page/rankings

    Cons

    A number of comments on reviews are quite demeaning in tone. Whether or not this is intentional, it gives the appearance that HR isn't taking these reviews seriously.

    For example:
    "Sorry you did not have the experience the other people at Mindshare had (as you can read from the other reviews and from the fact that many people stay for very long time at Mindshare)"
    "Love to read about nice people as that is indeed a great starting point of your experience with Mindshare. We have many stories to share about our talents creating their careers at Mindshare through the different ranks, developing new skill sets and experiencing the global network. Not sure what happened to you?"

    Advice to Management

    Take employee comments and reviews seriously rather than putting on a facade

    I have been working at Mindshare full-time

    Pros

    -Great coworkers and friends who work here
    -Emphasis on innovation and industry leadership makes it a good place to learn

    Cons

    -Company growth and expansion is valued far above individual employees, bringing them to the point of burnout
    -Lack of care for employees in positions with understaffed teams, low support or poor work/life balance
    -Loss of sense of community and culture

    Advice to Management

    The Chicago office used to have a fantastic sense of culture. There were leaders who truly fought for the idea that by caring for people and putting them first, you can get great work from your employees. This really showed and brought out the best in the people who work here. Recently, new leadership has been brought in who instead emphasize hierarchy and create a toxic environment to work in. Management needs to work to bring back a positive workplace and show greater care for the people doing the work that keeps this company going.

    Pros

    Really good people who work extremely hard and are passionate about their job and the industry

    Cons

    Culture has been completely lost in the past 12 months. While the agency has grown in terms of new clients and business, it has been at the expense of the employee experience and company culture.

    Advice to Management

    Get a bigger office- people sitting on top of one another is not a healthy work environment. Something needs to be done to demonstrate to employees that they're not just churning out work with no reward or feeling valued. The agency has gotten too big too fast and turnover will become a problem.
