    Pros

    Best company I have ever worked for. Finally an employer who cares! Colleagues are intelligent, accomplished and want to help each other achieve the client's goals. You won't find a bigger group of talented people! Senior leaders are supportive of your concerns and instrumental in your growth. TPN hires the best of the best in the industry! Perks and benefits are better than any other company around. I plan to be at TPN many more years! CEO, Sharon Love, is absolutely the best!

    Cons

    You will work hard here so don't take the job if you can't take the heat! Most work is on an accelerated timeline so buckle up!

    Advice to Management

    Just keep listening to your employees!

    I worked at tpn full-time

    Pros

    Weekly catered lunch, unfortunately served on Fridays. Not worth the five days of excremental projects it takes to get there.

    Cons

    Feckless Creative Directors who do not know how to direct.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of clients that are even more spineless than you.

    I have been working at tpn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunch, Massages 3x a week that you can sign up for, lunch learn-ins, agency experience.

    Cons

    Your experience depends on your team. I think I was quite unlucky with the personalities on my team. For me, a very negative environment and a team that was not very supportive. It's just your typical job where if you're not a person of status, your opinion does not matter. This was my first job and there really isn't any interest from your team to help you grow and develop beyond. So, I resorted to mass company generic-topic luncheons. You're really treated like a low-paid minion. Low pay, long hours, stingy raises, busy-work. Most of your days are spent running around between creative and account teams relaying the same information, getting approvals. It's okay for getting some agency experience, but move on.

    I have been working at tpn full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, very fun lively atmosphere. They put a real effort in to make work enjoyable. The work always keeps you on your toes, its pretty fast paced but in a fun way. You learn a lot about the retail industry and what goes into large POS campaigns.

    Cons

    A little too lax on upper management. Bosses are gone more than they are there. POS and retail can get a little old, can feel limiting in what you will learn.

    Advice to Management

    The longevity of TPN employees is normally great but people here get a little too comfortable. If someone has had the same roll for 15-20 years they probably don't know much about the industry, besides their little part of it. Maybe rotate people every few years onto different accounts? It would keep them a lot fresher and bring a new dynamic to accounts that could use it.

    Pros

    Many of the employees have been at tpn for 10+ years and when they tell you in hiring that it is a "family" they aren't lying.

    Cons

    tpn is sometimes trying to be a bigger agency than it is, in terms of projects and clients. Behind the times in career development and innovation since most of senior management has only worked at tpn.

    Advice to Management

    focus on your core- shopper marketing.
