Associate Director, Trading Desk (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 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.

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.
Planner (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 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.

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.
Executive Admin/Asst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 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.
