    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

    Flexible management, great location for after work drinks and many perks within the office

    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.

    value employees more

    I worked at Wunderman UK full-time

    Pros

    - If you've never worked in Marketing, it's a great environment to learn in, getting used to the marketing environment.
    - People are typically fun to work for (depending on the team you're working in)

    Cons

    - They pay well under what people are worth even by market standards
    - There is a very high turnover of people leaving the company on a weekly basis (make of this what you want, but in my opinion, if people are happy in their roles, they tend to stick around)
    - If you're working on the data side of the company rather than the creative side, you'll not get any love or recognition from the higher managers / CEO's when credit is given for jobs well done.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO and upper managers have to understand that there is more to the success of the company than seeing what the creative side has proposed. Without the data analysis aspect of the company, Wunderman UK would have folded long ago.
