    I have been working at Wunderman full-time

    Pros

    I'm fairly new to the Wunderman but have 7 years of experience in the Advertising industry and have never worked at a more collaborative agency! There are absolutely no egos and most people whom I have worked with across different disciplines have been team players, tremendously resourceful, bright and outgoing. The quality of life here is also great and senior management strongly cares abut the development of staff.

    Cons

    IT is horrendous because WPP has most of the networks IT departments outsourced abroad with IBM in India thus causing requests to be outstanding for long periods of time.

    I worked at Wunderman full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Support for large accounts Microsoft and T-Mobile. Teams built around big accounts. Recruiting did a good job hiring solid team members who were fun to work with and collaborate on projects.

    Cons

    No room for growth. No training or support after you are hired. If the client at any point in time throws you under the bus or decides they do not like you, you are removed from the project with no support from WPP Executive Leadership. Client says jump, WPP says how high? HR Department & Leadership was/is such a joke here. You scratch your head wondering how did this person get a leadership role in HR? No annual raises or pay increases, not even a cost of living increase.

    Advice to Management

    Value and support your employee's professional growth. Provide training options and opportunities to advance their careers internally. Otherwise, you run the risk of losing more great employees.

    I worked at Wunderman full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Creative space, small enough for successful collaboration.

    Cons

    Main downside is the client portfolio was fairly limited to pharma brands only

    Advice to Management

    Keep making progress in client management. Poorly-trained client expectations create impossible working hours for your valued employees.

    Pros

    The people. They were great to work with!

    I worked at Wunderman full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is generally very understanding if you need to take off for a doctor's appointment or other personal reason. There is a good amount of PTO between vacation and holidays, good benefits (insurance and 401K). There's a lot of freedom and independence with no micromanagement. The environment is laid back and casual and the people are nice.

    Cons

    The pay is too low as compared to similar jobs. Hours can be long at times and there is no additional compensation beyond your salary. Work can be routine with little opportunity for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more opportunities for growth and encourage employees to learn and grow which is better for them and the company. Provide incentives of some kind. Reward jobs well done.

    Pros

    Company allows you to be yourself, to chart your own path. Tons of opportunity to advance and grow. Generous vacation and leave. Relaxed atmosphere. Strong, friendly culture.

    Cons

    Pay scale could be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Management genuinely cares about the staff, but is sometimes hampered by being part of aa global network.

    Pros

    You get to work with incredibly talented people doing award-winning work for international clients. You will grow your book and your skillset while having fun along the way.

    Cons

    Work-life balance is a bit of a challenge. It might just be agency life, but don't expect to leave at 5pm. Be judicious about when to say "yes" and when to say "no." Both are equally vital to succeed it at Wunderman.
