I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

I assume you work in either SEO or SEM? And you work on a Pharma account?

The Hilton account will be very different from the healthcare/pharma account you are on now.

Much more fast paced, competitive, demanding, extremely tactical and analytically focused. So basically the opposite of what you are potentially doing now.

Hence the reason the pay is much higher. Generally on travel/hospitality related accounts the hours are longer and more intense. You have to remember the travel and hospitality industry is always competitive especially in search, and has been greatly affected the past two years. But people are traveling again so brands are trying to capture the demand again. Think about how that will impact your work load

I echo the previous comment. Definitely depends on the account but I only have positive things to say about my experience within dentsu.

What position ru?

Congrats - how long have you been in your current role? How is your career path there, any possibility for promotions? And would your departure leave your current team in a tough spot? Definitely do not want to put them in a bind and burn bridges. I’ve only worked with iProspect as SEO partners and very talented but not aware of the culture.

I’ve been handling it pretty well I’d say. I definitely have support from others, but still inherit some of the responsibility and tasks of the manager role. Just annoying because when the position is filled, it still takes a few months for that person to get a grasp of the position and the account

I know someone who got fired from there, extremely aggressive people, poor management , the team he was on 6 left out of the 8 along with the manager. Very top heavy company.

How much to project managers make?

iP and Dentsu are not much different from any other holding company. Constant restructures, bad org structure, and lack of culture. I currently report into an SVP who does not even work over one of my LOBs as an example. Also Dentsu has been really bad with pitches over the last 1-2 years.

I know this topic has come up before but am asking a slightly different question. We have always talked about 3 kids.

It has been such a vulnerable scary time and I don’t want to be that vulnerable again. I am vaxxed and it’s more about not wanting to be reliant on the medical system vs Covid specifically. Will I regret not going for 3?
