Often abbreviated IPG, the Interpublic Group is a parent company that facilitates marketing and advertising partnerships between businesses, publishers, and networks. In addition to its domestic holdings, IPG also operates in other countries under different brands. In the 1960s and '70s, it focused on television, radio, and other traditional media channels, but in the '90s and '00s, it diversified its strategies to include all different types of media, which makes it one of the most powerful brands in the United States. Essentially, its goal is to help create sales results for global businesses.
IPG hires professionals all around the world and maintains an active internship program for college students and recent graduates who are interested in jobs in marketing, advertising, and communications. It offers a diverse array of potential positions in these industries and offers a wealth of benefits to both part-time and full-time workers. Employees can choose from multiple medical plans so they can find one that meets their specific needs, and paid vacation, sick leave, and time off all come with most positions.
Current and past employees remark that IPG offers a "great work environment" and excellent benefits. They also praise the company's flexibility in attempting to "[meet] the needs of employees" and appreciate management's commitment to showing its appreciation for subordinates. Some workers criticize what they view as limited potential for job growth, while others praise IPG's willingness to promote from within. – less
