Even if you leave the network and return back within 7 years. I came back within three for that reason and it was a good homecoming.

Yes, your tenure follows you within the IPG network.

You can only bring your "time" in the network. It counts toward vesting, etc. Different smaller networks within the larger network have different policies so only the time seniority comes with you. For example,. UM has a "week" or allocated time vacation policy. I'm now at MullenLoweGroup and we have unlimited PTO.

Yes. I’ve been at 3 IPG agencies and everything follows. If an individual agency has a better policy, like MLG’s unlimited PTO, you get that.

like

Yes. 3 years to be fully vested in your 401k and you are able to do so. Why isn’t there an HR bowl.

I just started my job a month ago. It was my 2nd choice role at this company. I didn't realize the chaos I was walking into, and while it's not toxic (yet), I had hopes of more work life balance and an actual "belonging to a team" feel. I basically skipped onboarding and jumped right into working, boss skipped a huge working session I "led" but had no clue how to lead and I was put on the spot. Applying to a dream job but if I don't get it might keep browsing. Is leaving worth the consequences?
