    I worked at TMP Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    My experience with TMP was mainly positive! I have been with this company for over 2.5 years. I started as an Account Executive in the D.C. office. Their client services management is awesome and I can speak very highly of this team. I then decided I wanted to change my career path. TMP offered to relocate me to the Chicago office to join the Performance Media Team. It was an eye opener for me seeing how different these two offices operate. Overall, my experience was positive. The Performance Media Team is like one large family. They have each other’s backs if help is needed. Management is always willing to help out with analyst work. I also loved how management is understanding of scenarios when you need to work from home. Overall Company Pros: -Work/life balance -Relocation package -PTO/WFH -Training -Fun activities to make work enjoyable

    Cons

    Several Company Benefits currently aren’t the best.

    I worked at TMP Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Casual work environment, good work life balance, 20 days PTO, and supportive colleagues.

    Cons

    It is alarming that a recruitment marketing and branding agency has such poor standards for its own organization from recruitment, benefits, on boarding, training, professional development, and exit interview. You know what I mean if you’ve worked here. All of these things are sub-par. Unethical practices to hit revenue goals and lack of marketing knowledge and experience is very evident with the lack of process and subject matter experts. I would not come here if you are looking to sharpen your skills because you will pick up bad habits. To make things worse, outdated coding and software technology, zero compliance and security protocol, thoughtless executions and zero accountability make it a nightmare to get things done. You will be going in circles for months trying to get the simplest things completed. Unfortunately, these attitudes are prevalent in the organization and you will find 98% of employees negatively poking fun at the organization (even leadership).

    I have been working at TMP Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have never worked in the marketing field before TMP. I have learned so much about recruitment marketing, challenges employers have and solutions from our seasoned management! 1. Work life balance - I have never worked for a company so understanding. There is flexibility when needed. 2. Helping you grow as a professional. As previously stated, there is a lot of flexibility; but you have to stay self motivated. You are not going to be micromanaged, which really helps you grow as a professional and find your working style. 3. Work culture. Upper management does a great job trying to keep the office together! Our RVP has done a great job letting people plan things to boost staff morale. Our RVP really invests in everyone at the office and inter-office relationships. 4. Staff Meetings are very productive, upper management has allowed AE's to start presenting. This is giving the AE's an opportunity to show their growth and knowledge about their clients and other products TMP is offering. By giving this opportunity it allows AE's to feel valued as employees. Feeling valued as an employee is key to flourishing in your job.

    Cons

    The office is difficult to get to if you need public transportation, but we are moving to a more accessible location!

    Pros

    My experience here has been solid overall. It's recruitment marketing, so you might not always be put on the sexiest campaign. But there have been plenty of interesting and engaging projects that I've worked on. You're also afforded the opportunity to work with bigger name clients which can be a great addition to your portfolio. The team has been really supportive. Everyone is very considerate about your projects and scheduling. Additionally, they're very respectful about PTO. Work/life balance is good at entry through senior levels, but seems to be harder for managers. You can advance here a lot faster than at other agencies. This has greatly benefited myself and plenty of my coworkers.

    Cons

    Workload can be inconsistent Work can feel repetitive Clients' experience with engaging with agencies varies, which can lead to friction Consideration for promotions and raises can get caught up in bureaucracy

    TMP has a fantastic culture - it's all about client success. The environment is fun and collaborative, and very much about work-life balance.

    Pros

    TMP provides excellent work-life balance, as well as good opportunities for growth personally and within the company. The office environment if fun, supportive, and collaborative and if you don't know something there is always someone you can learn from. There's a lot of variety in the work itself day-to-day, which keeps things interesting. I feel fortunate to have landed myself in a company that offers the opportunities I've had at TMP.

    Cons

    Some programs used in the company are outdated. It's not always clear which processes should be used to get certain tasks done as the onboarding doesn't cover these aspects.
