    Pros

    The department is great, very positive people, dysfunctions are rare. The spirit of appreciating everyone for the unique talents and experience they bring is very positive.

    Cons

    At the corporate, holding-company level, IPG can get a little stuffy. It's important to maintain composure and not give off the wrong appearance that an agency isn't in the best of hands in the IPG network, but this leads to a stuffy, low to no-fun company culture.

    I have been working at Interpublic Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management recognizes talent and as long as you are working and doing a good job will be flexible with your work hours if needed. Phenomenal Personal Time Policy. Friendly colleagues. Positive environment - with the exception of some typical work place politics - but even those are not terrible. I really love my job.

    Cons

    I can't think of one.

    Advice to Management

    Consider implementing an official telecommuting policy that allows employees the option to work remotely full time or most of the time.

    I have been working at Interpublic Group full-time

    Pros

    * Very laid back atmosphere * Flexible * Friendly Management * Offers full time staff the chance to work from home 2 days a week.

    Cons

    * Culture may foster too much of a laid back atmosphere. Can go weeks with no real task. * Limited formal processes, staff pretty much does as they wish. Creates confusion. * Poor inter-departmental communication and hand-off processes. * MGT tends to react with band-aid solutions instead of proactively trying to improve.

    Advice to Management

    Make decisions and stick with them. You have to formalize communication and hand-offs better. Too many people are just passing the work around. I cannot comment on the CEO because he is invisible except for an email every few months.

    I worked at Interpublic Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Dynamic company and interesting industry Great culture at Omaha office Ability to participate in global projects Great benefits and TONS of time off Very casual dress in Omaha - jeans everyday and shorts in the summer Really enjoyed the people I worked with - best office atmosphere I've experienced I would HIGHLY recommend IPG

    Cons

    Nothing major. Increased transparency from senior management and less politics when you deal with corporate in NY.

    Advice to Management

    The corporate focus on diversity was a little over the top and could be toned down a bit.
