      Pros

      - Under WPP umbrella. - Is a gold star on a resume to move to another agency or within the advertising space. I would not stay past 2 years like I did. - Sink or Swim. Regardless you'll become very knowledgeable about Programmatic. -Good paid time off including extended holiday time off. - Nice offices - This place will make you intense and seem like the most ambitious/competent person in your next role. -Co-workers were great people for the most part.

      Cons

      - Salary is far too low for the 12 hour+ days. This is a WPP problem as they consistently seem to pay less then all the other large agencies. Numerous employees after leaving will get 30-50% raises for lateral moves. - Working on a weekend is normal to meet unreasonable deliverable expectations by the agency. - Training is very limited for the expectations from the agency of us being the programmatic experts. -Management is variable across the company. My manager was immensely toxic and led to me being severely burnt out by the end of my tenure(gaslighting, politicking, berating). I did see other good managers while I worked there. Many of them left to get big pay raises at other firms. -Promotions here are often based on time of service and playing politics. I saw some extremely competent folks consistently get passed over for promotions.

      Like a ship without a rudder

      Pros

      Relatively light workload, nice views from the NYC office (pre-Covid obviously)

      Cons

      In my experience, there was little oversight over middle management, and training overall was quite poor. I was frequently berated, often publicly, for mistakes that originated with other teams. Because of this, coming in to work was often a very uncomfortable experience. Account managers often seemed lost and confused about how to communicate client needs, which led to bad results across the board. Blaming and finger-pointing was rampant. It also felt lacking in the culture and leadership department. "Leaders" were people who would pop in to the office for a few days a few times a year but who were mostly out of sight, out of mind, save for company-wide town halls in which they would discuss things happening at a level that didn't affect the average employee.

      Pros

      good place to start in programmatic there are some really smart people you can learn from access to groupm resources

      Cons

      pay is abysmal. they pay more to people hired from outside than the people who stay and get promoted. every year is the same, new leadership steps in and promises to make change, but they disappear after a while and no one knows what they do exco doesnt seem to help employees
