    I have been working at Mindshare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Mindshare has some great events, great opportunities and some great client leads that are easy to work with and make it a pleasurable place to work. They are flexible but also structured. There is a lot to get involved in, you'll make friends across different teams. Free bar is always a perk and socially groups go out in masses afterwards.

    Cons

    Typically under-paid and pay rises once in the role are hard to come by

    "Discrimination and bullying is not dealt with"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at Mindshare full-time

    Pros

    Many good colleagues and stimulating work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately Mindshare has very poor processes for dealing with any manager who bullies and discriminates (and this is not only a matter of shouting and bad language, but can be a hundred sly, discriminatory ways to undermine and demotivate a person) and anyone who raises issues about this is inevitably moved out of the door by a complicit HR department. I cannot, therefore, recommend anyone work for this company if they are not prepared to put up with this.

    Advice to Management

    I would say to the CEO that he puts in place a serious and confidential review of institutional discrimination and bullying and provides a clear process for staff to raise issues without being forced to work in an intolerable situation or having to leave. A modern media company should not tolerate the current kind of bullying, discriminatory culture that is too prevalent.
