    I have been working at Wunderman UK full-time

    Smart talented people.

    Lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    Growth has led to delivery challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Get the basics right first.

    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.

    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.

    I worked at Wunderman UK full-time

    Pros

    Very good progression, both in wage and responsibility / seniority. There was a good working culture and work-life balance, although that differs between accounts and teams.

    Cons

    The office is uninspiring and short of areas to take calls and meetings. You can sometimes feel undervalued as they over-promise potential wage changes. Wage progression is overly reliance on overall Wunderman and WPP performance.

    Advice to Management

    Make workers feel like their wages reflect their work, not the health of the parent companies. Focus on making the office environment better.

    Pros

    Great location, office and people. Some inspiring work. Friday drinks, and free toast and breakfast. Oh a a free lunch for a few

    Cons

    Don't say it if you can't deliver it. Too many so called 'leaders' who have never led before.

    Advice to Management

    Get advice before promising it and trust in the middle management who are probably better then you

    Pros

    Wunderman has great people - very few egos and lots of collaborative working. It is an energetic place to work and their approach to advertising mirrors that of a consulting firm.

    Cons

    Very top heavy agency - therfore hard to move up. Salary reviews are assigned out of head office, so not based on accolade, rather based on when you last got salary increase. Bit of an old school boys club.
