Does Wunderman offer unlimited holiday?

Pros

While there are many reasons people love working here, a few stand out to me in particular: Donuts. Diversity. Danielle. Also, there's a bunch of other things that make it awesome to work here. I get unlimited post-it notes and the coffee machine makes hot chocolate for whenever you're feeling frisky. Also it's great that they respect your time outside of work and there are plenty of opportunities to do work you care about. It's legit.

Cons

Fluorescent lighting Only 12 flavors of LaCroix on average

I get unlimited post

How are promotions handled at Wunderman?

Pros

- When I was first hired here, they told me they only hire good people. And that could not be more true. Everyone here is pretty awesome. No back-stabbing or malicious activity. - Working right next to Georgetown Waterfront is amazing. Only thing is its expensive to drive and metro. Parking is horrendous and you have to walk a little while from FoggyBottom to get to the office. - As long as you get your work done on-time, you are good to go. People also understand that life happens and if you need to work remote that's fine.

Cons

- The pay is low for the industry standard. They are constantly talking about how they don't have the budget for anything. Yet we just went through an office redesign, spent so much on it and now the morale is so low due to the new office. Its a sterile open space office layout. For a while, we weren't allowed to have our own desks—now we are finally allowed to because they recognized how much everyone hated the new space. - The culture is shot mostly due to the office redesign which I mentioned above. We used to have amazing culture and they hire great people. But the space makes you feel like you can't talk to people. There are no paid happy hours. There's nothing (no events) to bring community between employees. - We have standard benefits. But in addition to that, there is nothing you want to strive for because there is really no reward. - Pharma is the only kind of work here. We have expanded into a few other healthcare related businesses. But XELJANZ is the bulk of the business. BEWARE. If we loss XELJANZ, we would probably lose the DC office. - There is little creativity in the work due to stipulations with FDA regulations for the drugs we promote. For a while they only let a select few people be on pitch work but they are expanding because people complained about it so much. - Promotions are few and far between and unless you are a favorite then you likely won't get a promotion. Your manager won't back you up and try to help you get anywhere. You are on your own... There's no end in sight. - There is no annual raise for cost of living. This is also a problem because the pay is so low here.. - Working remote is pretty flexible here but its more flexible for certain people such as those who work remote all the time because either they moved. Just because they chose to move away doesn't make it fair that you can work remote all the time. Also some people have designated "work from home" days. They need to come up with a standard to give everyone a work from home opportunity. **Culture has gotten so bad here that we had a company "off-day" where the business-side was shut down. Everyone had to attend a company event held in our building to address all of the morale problems we are experiencing. This event was held in the beginning of April. Its now three months later and no action has been made...

Advice to Management

Management acts like they are listening to their employees but there is no action. Stop playing favorites. You need to value your employees more... There is no investment in our people and people eventually realize this. Hence why we have such high turnover.

Promotions are few and far between and unless you are a favorite then you likely won't get a promotion.

What is the feeling of job security at Wunderman?

Pros

- Work hours, people mostly leave earlier than most agencies. - The office is nice and so is the coffee

Cons

Here we go: - Lies from the day you're brought on. They'll tell you about your role very generically without specifying what you actually need to do. - There is a sense of stale in the air with the constant layoffs. Almost like a ghost town. Everyone is scared that they'll be soon to go. - Disorganized leadership with everyone bolting after the merger - There is steep divide with very young employees and most of the older senior level, like it's kindergarten and a masters level program and no one is communicating. - The budget is going down yearly so there will be more layoffs to come

Advice to Management

- Give up and pack it up.

There is a sense of stale in the air with the constant layoffs.
