Anyone have experience moving to a different agency that’s in the same holding company? What’s the policy for WPP, omnicom, etc?

Read your employee handbook. For Wpp, you have to notify your boss/ask for "permission" to switch agencies because the network has anti poaching policies among member agencies.

With WPP I’m pretty sure you are capped at a 5% increase of your current salary.

Heard Omnicom has a cap as well. Also, not sure if it's network protocol or just inner-city grapevine, but our boss at Omnicom agency A knew when employees were interviewing at Omnicom agency B or Omnicom agency C. This ever happen to anyone?

Anti poaching policies exist and should, though at times, the policies (mainly comp cap) seem to encourage people to move from one HCompany to another...but pressure test the cap, there's flex there.

That’s terrible :(. What’s omnicom’s policy? I know that publicis has a pretty strict policy too.

All - is it a cap in ANY position or those that just have a lateral move? 5% increase for an account director position is a little sad

@AS1 it is usually for all positions regardless of move. This is to prevent poaching from one another.

I moved between omnicom agencies a few years ago for a title bump, there was no salary cap, but I kept quiet about where I was going. Unless you’re at a ECD/CCO level or try to port over business, no one really cares.

@wpp it's 10% cap unless special circumstances. My year is next month and I just read all the legalese a few hours ago. After 12months you can apply to "springboard" positions -- which I guess is where they have the most openings/trouble hiring. They are all in UK, Singapore, China and Hong Kong and the salary max is $80k British or $109K Trump.

Considering leaving PA in October. Will have 1 year of audit experience and CPA by then. Not very interested in internal audit or industry accounting roles unless in a preferred industry. More interested in FP&A, operations, etc. When should I start interviewing assuming a start date of mid Oct or early Nov?

Any other teachers out there have issues with mold in their window-less classrooms? If we don’t have proper ventilation to prevent mold from growing on walls, how do they expect us to feel comfortable/safe in a potentially Covid exposed room?
