What are meetings like at Mindshare?

Pros

1. Large company 2. Lots of flexibility, as nobody knows what exactly you are doing 3. You can get some international brand names on your resume 4. If you are looking to work somewhere while working on a side, Mindshare is a good place. Most clients are focused on getting clicks, not sales. Mindshare will cover up for their real rates (multiple clients only receive clicks and impressions data). So on one hand you don’t have to do much work, on the other hand you will hardly learn anything applicable to the real life

Cons

1. Knowing what their data stands for - as an Analyst your job will largely consist of covering up for media buys not executed properly, making things up and helping planners to cover the clients in a pile of definitions 2. Lately multiple clients realized that a vision at Mindshare is to push back, lie and cover things up. It is also impossible to get a promotion. As a result the place has turned over twice in the past few years 3. People gonna push you and you have to push back otherwise they will throw you under the bus, which I’ve seen happen even on client meetings 4. Every time they get some sort of award, it feels just ridiculous. The company has 0 process and most awards they receive are for ideas that come from outside the agency or for “getting the most impressions” 5. They are in a business of buying impressions and selling Impressions. It is not about quality or anything else. This is not very good from experience standpoint 5. I think Mindshare will collapse soon and will have to improve as a result

Advice to Management

Honestly, I don’t think there is anything you can do at this point...

What is the work environment like at Mindshare?

Pros

Abundant courses/trainings provided, great atmosphere and work environment, standard benefits, lots of on the job perks

Cons

Low salary for a position in the city

Advice to Management

Management seems to vary between those who have been promoted quickly due to college internships and those who have been in media for 7+ years. Plenty to learn from either situation.

How is the office food 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.

You get a lot of free food
