Lead Talent Acquisition Partner (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 24, 2016
IPG Mediabrands is an interesting place - challenging work and a nice degree of cache in the digital advertising world - some major clients recently brought on board so lots to do. Management changes have occurred over the last year which has bred confusion on process and how things are communicated. This has caused there to be a chaotic environment at times though my guess is give it a year or so and this will all die down - you will work with some creative and passionate people
Collaborative and creative environment, good deal of freedom in how you do your job, amazing clients to work with (Coke!), interesting and challenging work
Too many process and org changes happening causing confusion, management does not always do a good job communicating
Media Planner (Current Employee) – New York, NY – February 10, 2016
The recruitment and HR team is horrible! Be prepared to stay in the position for years because HR will never help you switch roles even though they advertise hiring from with in. They are highly unresponsive and unproductive. The salary is extremely low.

non cummunimiddle management did not comunicate enough about tasks at hand
NATIONAL MEDIA BUYER (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 5, 2013
If you are into the TV industry, IPG Mediabrands is a great place to be. You enjoy your share of awesome parties and fun and young people to work with. It is not a fast pace environment, but occasionally there are spikes in workload.
Management is ok, you obviously have to befriend and get noticed by the right people to move up.
Co-workers are great except for the few that can be quite rude. But over-all, young and fun working environment.
The hardest part about the job would be reporting to the client and summarizing all activity. This happens quarterly and annually.
free lunches at really nice restaurants, great great vacation time (pto and holidays it comes out around 40 days off throughout the year), relaxing environment, good boost in salary between promotions
Director of Operations (Current Employee) – New York, NY – September 30, 2013
I report to an extremely smart, extremely connected SVP. She's great at her job and demands the best from me and our team. Every day I learn something new about how to handle a political situation, how to think more operationally, or how to conduct business on a global scale.
