Working in advertising was very stimulating and always presented challenges that I thrived on embarking on.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – New York, NY – October 15, 2015
I truly enjoyed going to work every day and working for a manager that enjoyed that I took the reigns and got my job done. The work was interesting and I had the opportunity to work with colleagues that still remain in my social network today.
Flexible schedule (able to work from home), great pay and yes free lunches!
Often there were very long hours and the commute to New York City could be tiring.
Manager, Office of the Chairman & CEO (Current Employee) – Manager, Office of the Chairman & CEO – February 12, 2015
A typical work is not a typical day. Working in the CEO's office you need to be flexible and be able to deal with all types of requests. Sorting emails, handling calls, getting briefs ready, making changes to the schedule, dealing with other C-level staff and their assistants, etc.
Executive Assistant to the Founder and CIMO (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 10, 2014
My day consists of supporting two high profile advertising executives. I manage an extremely heavy calendar for both executives. I communicate with current and potential clients via email. And monitor both my and both executives email accounts.
I have worked for the founder, which is the "father of direct marketing" since 2007 to present. He is not only a famous ad executive, but has an art collection at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. I have had the pleasure of being exposed to both the digital advertising and art world simultaneously. Therefore, manage both business and personal affairs for him.
Interactive PM (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 26, 2014
Wunderman was a great place to work. It tested my ability to keep my nerves intact and how to play a good prank. For a mid-level move this is a great agency, but their lack of agility can be frustrating. This causes high turn over, under resourced departments, uncertainty with clients and management to put on a veil that freaks everyone out. All stated should be expected of a client that size, but I still believe they will evolve into a stronger agency.
PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – January 24, 2014
It is incredibly fast paced, especially in the first 3 months! The people are great to work with although management seemed to overlook a lot of individual's hard work if they were not working on that project as well. There is opportunity for huge accomplishment on the project/client/personal level, however management has many blind spots. Work/life balance is promoted throughout the company but DOES NOT apply to project managers who, as an unspoken rule, are expected to work 45-70 hours a week without compensation.
working from home, good clients, enjoyable work enviroment
additional work is expected for no compensation for project managers
Account Executive (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 11, 2013
Everyone says it's prudent to have agency experience under your belt, and Wunderman is a great place to cut your teeth. As with any agency, the company is chock full of innovation and creativity but unfortunately a lack of process and disonnect between global and local markets stifles that.
Overall, a decent place to put in a couple of years.
fun work environment, great talent
work hours can be harsh, little room for upward growth, lack of process
Doesn't feel like work to me, which makes it a great place to work
Current Employee (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – April 10, 2013
Great people, fast paced, exciting work. Sure there are challenges, just like with every company, but the environment, culture, people make it a great place to come to every day. I love coming to work everyday.
the people! casual, open environment. i enjoy the fast paced work, i would hate to be in a job where i was bored. pto, great holiday time off
Microsoft Accounts (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – December 12, 2012
The people are what makes Wunderman an incredibly special place to work. Unfortunately, getting properly compensated for your time and effort can be a very slow process due to the huge corporate structure.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – March 16, 2012
I throughly enjoyed working for Wunderman for the culture it provided and the overall feeling that I was participating in something larger/ I felt good about the job I was doing and the work that was being done by Wunderman. The only short side was compensation. No raises or cost of living increases were ever given due to corporate. The one and only reason I left otherwise I would still be there.
great work/life atmosphere, great people.
lack of compensation for the good work being done.
