    Pros

    The people. They were great to work with!

    Management and the lack of feeling appreciated. As well as compensation. You were rarely compensated fairly.

    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

    Good humans. Healthy sense of teamwork and a noticeable camaraderie. Good work/life balance for a NYC ad shop. Active culture.

    Cons

    No big gripes. Some shifting personnel. A few vacancies made some projects a bit tougher than they needed to be.

    Advice to Management

    None really. They seemed focused on the right things.

    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.

    Pay scale could be improved.

    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.

    I worked at Wunderman (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some nice colleagues. Interesting clients. Good creative team. Great project managers. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Hard to work across departments at times. Bad management. No outside-of-the-box thinking.

    Advice to Management

    I had a manager who created an extremely hostile work environment. When I went to HR to discuss methods of resolving the situation, I was retaliated against by management and the HR representative I worked with. I was punished by HR. I was ignored by my manager unless it was to yell at me in front of the client and colleagues. She would remove me from email threads and meeting events. The management and HR eventually stonewalled me from my tem. I now regret not taking my issues up with a workplace lawyer so as to prevent issues from occurring in the future.

    Great atmosphere full of talented people. There is not a better place for working alongside amazing people.

    Cons

    Raises and promotions do not come often and you can be stuck without the ability to move up.
