Will never go back!
Digital Investment Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYApril 23, 2018
Understaffed, managers spill all the stuff that they get thrown. You don't leave, you don't have any sort of life balance, you WILL work on the weekends

Great for recent college grads living at home
Senior Digital Associate, Digital Display (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 27, 2018
The culture is very political. Hard work is not always acknowledged and it is hit or miss for a new employee to land a good manager. This company is a great start for a recent college grad!
Pros
Great place for a recent college grad
Cons
Compensation is low and hours are long.

Stay away
Director of Cyber Secuirty (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDFebruary 8, 2018
Another company with no vision. Great engineering minds, but barely surviving there. Company is still growing, but they need a real opportunity maker to break through.

Long hours, little pay

They'll work you until you burn out completely from the hours. There is little concern for the wellbeing of the individual or the quality of the work that is done.
Pros

Great place that doesn't reward loyalty
Associate Director, Trading Desk (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 4, 2018
The title says it all. It is a great place to learn about the industry and there are incredibly hard workers there. I ultimately left because it was clear that opportunities for advancement were slim as you move up and they didn't reward loyalty.

Una gran famila
Digital Trading Director (Current Employee) –  Majadahonda, MadridOctober 5, 2017
Mindshare es como una gran familia, es una empresa donde los empleados están bastante tiempo y el secreto de ellos es el buen ambiente laboral y la relación con el comité de dirección que es muy buena.
Como en todas las agencias, muchas veces hay jornadas interminables pero siempre se hacen amenas si hay un buen ambiente de trabajo.

Not Recommended
Planner (Former Employee) –  New York, NYSeptember 30, 2017
No culture whatsoever in the NY office. Everyone worked in silos; difficult to meet people from other teams. Little career advancement unless you are lucky because of favoritism. The grayness of the office made it a drag to go to work every day. It's not what you would expect from an advertising/ marketing agency. You are either overworked or underworked depending on the department you're in. Save yourself from the misery.

Too big a company with poor management
employee (Former Employee) –  Playa Vista, CASeptember 20, 2017
The lack of a work/life balance and poor management led to a very unpleasant experience. Perhaps other groups had better management/experiences, but some departments definitely got the short end of the stick.

The workplace at Mindshare was super fun
Executive Admin/Asst (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 21, 2017
My typical day at mindshare would be interacting with the planning and strategy teams reviewing magazines to find ads placed.
Also management of calendar conference rooms and international travel which was my favorite part. Being responsible for someone day and finding the best ate for them to travel comfortably was always rewarding. Management at MS was almost like family very laid back and approachable. the hardest part was down time trying to figure out what to do on our slow season.

Assistant Buyer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJuly 28, 2017
I found the team to be less than supportive when it came to assisting in my training and growth. The tasks I was given often lacked clarity and I was rarely given any solid direction.
