    Pros

    Friendly people, nice company parties.

    Cons

    They promise you security, 25 holiday days, 13th salary. Don't trust what they tell you and check carefully the contract before signing it. As a matter of fact, you have only 20 holiday days. The additional 5 are called 'relax days' and according to the management 'you don't need to take them' and you can forget about them if they need you at work. The 13th salary is a lie, they don't give it to anyone (despite promising that during the interview process). People are fired even by a text while on a sick leave.

    Generally speaking there is no security, employees are literally vanishing for no reasons and finally, working hours can be easily 12+ (with overtime obviously not paid).

    Advice to Management

    It would be a great place to work if you were fair to your employees.

    I have been working at Wunderman UK full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are passionate and best in the business. We have the scope and opportunity to do work that we’re proud of.

    Cons

    We should be more selective of our clients. We’re in a position to do this. Ensure they align with our culture and want to do great work!

    Advice to Management

    Senior leaders could be more accessible. Need more flexible working options.

    I have been working at Wunderman UK full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There are loads of great opportunities at Wunderman. Once you get to know the people here, you can really make some awesome stuff.

    From day one, I've been working on huge pitches and talking to people way up in the business. It's a fun and collaborative environment that I feel happy and proud to be in.

    Cons

    Wunderman is a fantastic work-place, but I could see improvement being made in introducing people in different teams across the agency — I've found meeting them has given me lots of opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    I don't really have any advice for management other than perhaps connecting different areas of the agency more efficiently.

    Pros

    Wunderman is a great place to be if you are looking for somewhere to develop and progress as they are very supportive with training and have various initiatives within the agency as well. There is also lots going on to get involved with outside of daily work which generally makes it a fun place to be.

    Cons

    Being a big agency it can feel like the accounts / departments are quite seperate, however there is always plenty of things going on within the agency that helps brings different departments together.

    Pros

    My experience was ok overall. Generally, there is a good culture at Wunderman.

    Cons

    Middle and senior management. There seems to be an ego issue with these members of staff, particularly those who have worked for the company for a while and feel untouchable. A lot of these managers still need real training in management. Work life balance is also flawed – people would rather you stayed behind for hours just to show facetime instead of leaving on time, even if you’ve completed your work. There are a few departments where this is particularly apparent and it’s not a healthy way of working.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your employees instead of your own profile within the industry.
