    Great leadership. The Chief Creative Director/ EVP is brilliant. You'll learn a lot while growing your portfolio.

    They care about how much you feel challenged by your job, how much you enjoy it and still give you a great work-life balance.

    I worked at Wunderman full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    They’ll hire you even if you have no experience. If you’re lucky, you’ll be under a manager that provides you with opportunities for more training. But that’s pretty rare

    Cons

    They don’t care about their employees. There is no pay scale, so coworkers could be making double your salary for doing the same job for absolutely no reason at all. They’ll lie to you about the hours and job you’ll be working. There’s a LOT of uncompensated overtime. Training is very spotty and you’ll be left to fend for yourself and figure things out. There are consequences for getting stuff wrong. Some managers are...

    Advice to Management

    Have more consistent training and if there are complaints against a person, look into them and consider that the person in question maybe shouldn’t be in a leadership role. Establish a pay scale and don’t punish employees for being upset about their low salary when their coworkers are making a ridiculous amount more than you when you do more work and have more experience.

    I worked at Wunderman full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Friendly and tight knit co-workers Colorful office space Diversity/Inclusion Initiatives

    Cons

    CEO presence is almost non-existent within the agency and agency updates are only given when things aren't going well. Salaries are lower than industry standard and there is no regard for making it competitive. No process for pay raises and promotions unless you beg for it. PM and account management teams seem to get the better end of the stick. Management is stale and also needs to do a better job with rolling out new...

    Advice to Management

    Make the raise/promotion process more transparent instead of arbitrarily rewarding employees because of personal preferences. CEO also needs to be a more active member of the office and provide more insight in agency operations.

    Pros

    While there are many reasons people love working here, a few stand out to me in particular: Donuts. Diversity. Danielle. Also, there's a bunch of other things that make it awesome to work here. I get unlimited post-it notes and the coffee machine makes hot chocolate for whenever you're feeling frisky. Also it's great that they respect your time outside of work and there are plenty of opportunities to do work...

    Pros

    Free food. Nothing else really. Hmm.

    Cons

    Wunderman Seattle is a sinking ship. While the company as a whole might be doing well, the Seattle office has gone down the trail. Some great minds realized this earlier during the year and left the organization for better places. This is a creative agency trying too hard to be a tech company, but will never be one. The directors for Data and Strategy already quit and the positions have not been filled for 6 months now....

    Pros

    Wunderman Seattle is a great place to work. The atmosphere is upbeat and friendly. The culture is creative and supportive. The managers sincerely care about your well-being, your workload, and your career. The team works toward a common goal and there aren't any egos. This place is fun, fulfilling and I absolutely recommend it.

    Cons

    It’s a bigger office so you won’t be on a first name basis with everyone.

    Advice to Management

    More candy in the snack room.
