    Pros

    I was at TMP for 9 years and it was a FANSTATIC company to work for! Management was always willing to help further your career within the company. Benefits were PHENOMENAL! Work/Life balance is amazing!

    Cons

    It's advertising so there are some late nights or early mornings but all in all that is normal in the advertising industry.

    Pros

    Good place for entry level.

    Cons

    Very political environment. Ultimately you're just there to fill a seat. If you're a strong performer, or doing nothing, it doesn't matter. It all boils down to politics. Middle managers throw employees under the bus during semi-anual layoff cycle. They rarely get touched, or take on any actual responsibility. They are all scared of losing their jobs and refuse to take risks or even commit to simple asks unless upper management throws them on the fire.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the bloated management structure. It's supposed to be a tech company. Hire department heads that work locally, not from home or off site.

    Pros

    The view from the office building is like no other! It’s beautiful.

    Cons

    If you’re looking to do media planning, please look elsewhere...please. The structure here, or lack there of lends no support. Expect burnout quickly!!! While it will never be voiced that you should stay late or work weekends...it will become quite apparent that the work is too much for ONE person. Did I mention there are no media teams? Accounts have one planner and if you’re lucky you may get an assistant. Most agencies have a few media professionals to an account...not here.

    You’ll be told half the story, and sold a dream. Bait and switch at its finest. Don’t say you weren’t warned!

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent. Don’t paint a rosy picture because you’re desperate for help. It’s unfair to the candidate and the organization as the employee will eventually leave after seeing things for what they really are.
