How is management perceived at Mindshare?

Pros

Good office location. You get a lot of free food

Cons

Con about the free food- you get fat, especially because this job eats up almost all your free time, so you have limited time to workout. If you get placed on a bad team with poor management or a bad client, it is a living nightmare to get acclimated. There is no formal training process, but they place a lot of pressure on Associates and Senior Associates to perform 100% error free work. On some teams, new employees are thrown in with no guidance only to face harsh repercussions for their mistakes. They also keep bad employees in the management level, despite multiple complaints and poor performance.

Advice to Management

Stop letting people who clearly have no people or management skills continue to manage a team. If your aren’t going to have a formal training process, you at least need competent and supportive management.

Is Mindshare a good company to work for?

Pros

Friendly and inspiring coworkers who genuinely want to do good work. Flexible working conditions. Big agency so lots of tools and resources.

Cons

Leadership only cares about their own advancement and looking good to the most senior people in the agency. Only those in the privileged inner circle get treated well. Weak leaders are threatened by good rising talent so no one above AD level ever gets promoted. Salaries are the worst in the industry and senior leadership thinks they can justify it by claiming they are a better place to work than other agencies. Lots of finger-pointing and gaslighting when things go wrong. No work-life balance on most teams. Leadership will offer empty promises just to sound good.

Advice to Management

Embrace strong rising talent and reward it with promotions. Pay people what they are worth and on par with the industry. If another agency is willing to give promotions and also pay the same roles 20-40% more, why would anyone stay? Stop talking to yourselves. No surprise you think everything is great when you only consider the opinions at the top. Back up your words with actions.
