    I worked at GroupM full-time

    Pros

    The sky is your limit when it comes to learning at GroupM. From the moment you arrive you are introduced to GroupM Uni which is out of this world in terms of what it offers.

    Cons

    GroupM needs to keep working on its purpose and it not just about making money. With the change in leadership it's lost its heart. Treat your workforce like adults and embrace that their ideas could be the future of GroupMs growth.

    I have been working at GroupM full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There are some good benefits (mortgage advice and GP comes to work once a week).

    Cons

    Manager sending out emails til 11pm and asking you first thing next day if you dealt with them. Expected to work evenings all the time. Lots of in house systems yet no training available. When you first start you are not given access to any of GroupM systems. You have to create IT tickets for each system and then to get them to install it one by one. It can take months for IBM to complete all this yet manager expects you deliver results from week1. Also no training available in how to use any GroupM systems. They say line manager with provide training. Line manager either in meetings or pub! Big pub culture, if you dont drink you will feel very alone. I asked other people for help using GroupM systems. They either give answer without looking at your screen which doesnt really help, or say they are too busy to help and walk away! Never worked in a place like this where there is no team work or proper training during induction!
