    Pros

    Dynamic and interactive corporate work environment. Collaborate with professional and ethical business colleagues that were knowledgeable, cooperative, genuine, and respectful. Reported / Led by experienced with accolades and approachable management and leadership. Challenging and impactful issues present in overall workload, relative to company's integrated, complex conglomerate business structure and position as industry leader as well as inherent based on applicable markets and segments coupled with competitive and regulatory environments. Regardless, opportunities to learn were always available and moments not only to excel, but also gain recognition for correctable errors identified, effective value add findings, and potential efficiency areas contributions were possible.

    Cons

    Flexibility is required. Work-Life balance directly affected with any changes to scope and timingo, regardless of sensitivity level and/or magnitude of change, since work of department is dependent on selected agency availability, global travel to perform on-site location reviews, and reporting deadlines earmarked for the fiscal year.

    Advice to Management

    No critical gaps or glaring need for improvement areas in practice identified. Keep up the good work in growing this integral business function company-wide.

    WPP is one of the few innovators in the advertising space. They make an effort to build great agencies and a strong network that leverages a huge pool of talent. I've worked at a number of agencies and this was by far my home.

    Advertising in general can be challenging at times and WPP has some of those traits. However, if you work hard, you'll be rewarded.
