    I worked at Project: WorldWide

    Pros

    Generous, 401K, medical and ESOP plan. Over the last several years there has been belt tightening of all benefits.

    Cons

    Benefits are being diluted through more employees and higher costs. Still likely above average of the industry.

  2. "Choose Carefully"

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Project: WorldWide full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Good salary and benefits package. If you are there long enough, they have an ESOP.

      Cons

      It all depends on what you are looking for. There isn't much of a culture. So if you are good with just coming in, doing your job and leaving, it might be ok.

      Advice to Management

      Do more to get the agencies and Project to work together.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Project: WorldWide full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      -Flexible Time Off (Unlimited vacation)

      Cons

      -Impressively disappointing recent "renovation" -1970s culture (from management styles to technology) -Lack of defined/documented processes throughout the organization -Culture of fear created/perpetuated by upper management (Bob) -Outdated systems (and by the time you convince upper management to invest in a new system it will surely become outdated) -Lack of leadership within the HR department

      Advice to Management

      -Stop making it so obvious that GPJ is the "favorite" (the other agencies are not naive to this) -If you treat HR/Finance/IT as simply an administrative function then that is all they will ever be - leverage the talent within those departments to add value to the organization

      I worked at Project: WorldWide

      Pros

      Met some Nice people. Superb medical/health benefits package.

      Cons

      This is a 3rd ier holding company made up of a big Detroit agency and multiple 3rd tier small agencies that all overlap with what they do. So forget about cross agency projects and get ready for direct competition from a sister agency. Any cross agency outreach is just people looking for contacts and advantages for their shop, for their work. No advancement unless you want to move to Detroit (good times)

      I worked at Project: WorldWide full-time

      Pros

      There is some real talent through the network - but many of the most talented don't seem to opt to stay very long or are drummed out.

      Cons

      Lack of partnership. Cross agency projects tend to dissolve into a puddle of back-biting and undermining. Openly hostile colleagues make for very long days in the office. This place is a bummer.

      I worked at Project: WorldWide full-time

      Pros

      Benefits are okay, but not universal across the board.

      Cons

      On an acquiring spree, but keeps buying substandard agencies that are openly hostile to each other. Company-wide new business pitches are a joke and embarrassing. Personally witnessed sexism, racism, gender and sexuality discrimination and general discriminatory behavior across the board among upper management at least two of their companies. Slow to hire, slower to fire. Absolutely no career development. ...
