Wonderful work experience with just as wonderful employees
Assistant Office Facilities Coordinator (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – 8 November 2018
Working for GroupM was a wonderful experience. Management was very adamant about furthering your growth and knowledge within the company. Everyone was helpful and well rounded individuals. Very teamwork orientated. A typical day in the GroupM Atlanta office was fast pace. Lots of clients in and out of the office daily. Phones ringing nonstop, vendors coning with packages from the clients and employees sending packages to the clients or to co-workers in WPP offices. I would assist in supporting 13 OpCos (over 275 employees) in four suites on three different floors. Covering facility needs required as well as supervising three full time employees and two contracted employees. I learned how to allocate bills, process billing invoices, manage a team, support hundreds of employees, strong communication skills, strong written communication, multi-tasking, rise about stressful situations, staying calm and professional, contract/vendor bidding, and building out a new space.
The hardest part about my job was keeping organized. Without organization and order the job could not be done. I was responsible for so many tasks. If I did not maintain an organized filing system I would have been lost, unable to complete given tasks in a timely manner, and lost very important documents.
The most enjoyable part about my job was the clients and employees. It was such a diverse team. I loved the creative aspect of advertisement. Each employee brought something new and improved to the company.
