    I have been working at Mindshare full-time

    Pros

    So many great career opportunities available to anybody that’s a go getter. You can learn a lot about the industry in a very short amount of time here.

    Cons

    Hard work long hours and not everybody you work with is ambitious and keen to help.

    I worked at Mindshare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I had a very positive time at Mindshare. Solid leadership drives the culture from the top down. There are endless opportunities to get involved in projects beyond your day to day role that will give you exposure to other areas of the business, the network and senior leadership. Excellent training - the opportunities are endless if you are willing to take responsibility for your own development.

    Cons

    Salary increases are slow. On some teams the hours are long but that didn't seem to be the company culture - people were motivated to work hard and put in the hours when required.

    I have been working at Mindshare full-time

    Pros

    Ambitious workforce, progressive company, and with a desire to help employees progress with their careers

    Cons

    Very poor pay, and limited opportunity for promotion. Compared to other large agencies that i have worked at or know of, Mindshare favours individuals who are particularly outgoing and talkative. If this is a prerequisite for success in media then Mindshare will reap the benefits, but for many I speak to, this is an obvious deterrent.
