    I have been working at GMR Marketing (More than a year)

    Pros

    great team to work with on great projects. International development opportunities in a global network within Omnicom. GMR Marketing is very well known in the US already and will soon be a force to reckon with in Europe

    Cons

    Currently still in a new biz cycle, looking for great brands to activate on a global and most professional level. There are some limitations with regards to the digital scope that can be handled from the UK, but good team in the US.

    I have been working at GMR Marketing full-time

    Pros

    Friendly staff with a focus on good atmosphere which made it a fun place to work. Interesting project with good clients which has been great experience.

    Cons

    Got a bit stuck in one role so I didn't get as broad experience as I would have liked. Limited progression due to working in a fairly small team.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more internal opportunities for advancement and progression so that people are more likely to want to stay on there.

    Great people, great work environment, let you work on legitimate projects. Overall my experience was really good.

    Advice to Management

    Since this was in 2012 I don't know much about the current management. What I can say though that all my supervisors were great to work with.

    I have been working at GMR Marketing full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have just started working at GMR. So far, everyone has been very welcoming and enjoyable to interact with. As a designer, equipment is important. I have been provided a high capacity computer with plenty of accessories and all of the must-have apps. The New Berlin location has awesome workspaces and the coffee machines look pretty sweet (although I have not gotten to try them out yet).

    Cons

    None that I can currently think of.
