Laid back but not an innovator
Vice President, Strategy & Analytics (Former Employee) –  Boston, MANovember 25, 2017
AMP has a solid culture but lack's vision or an operational plan to manage potential growth. Since it's acquisition by Advantage Solutions the agency manages to profit targets, which is generally achieved by cutting due to a lack of new buisness success over the last two years.

They treat their people with zero regard
Strategy (Former Employee) –  Boston, MASeptember 20, 2016
Work/life balance was surprisingly not an issue here, which is a pleasant change from most other agencies. That was the only positive, however. There was an unclear growth path, personal grudges between the CEO and heads of other departments (unbeknownst to most, the CEO lives in North Carolina and simply treats the agency as his cash cow), and no real camaraderie among employees.

AMP is no longer a creative agency. Their internal research arm, the Digital Shopper Group, is what's winning business and making the agency its money. Unless you find your desk sitting within those boundaries, you're not going to advance your career... and no matter where you sit, you won't be doing the work a real, true full-house ad agency does.

There are plenty of other decent mid-size shops with great clients and better creative that you'd be better off looking at and working for. AMP's holding company, Advantage, is not one that you want in control of your fate.
Pros
free lunches every thursday
Cons
employee regard, office culture
