We put our people first. Our people are central to our identity. Our people create a fun, dynamic environment. Generate ideas. Build relationships. Strengthen the organization. Our people make success happen. In fact, they make everything happen. So, it's essential that our identity comes to life around each and every one of us and that it inspires us...motivates us..and challenges us.

I worked at Publicis LifeBrands Medicus (More than a year)RecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
CEO sets the tone for a positive, spirited corporate culture. Senior management also does a pretty good job at maintaining the positive open culture. Freelancers see the inside many companies. PLBM is unique in this positive humanity. If you are an employee who puts yourself out there, communicates and chips in with a smile there are excellent opportunities for growth. Arrogant jerks don't last long here.
Publicis corporate benefits (holiday, health, financial, etc..) may be the best in the industry and the individuals at PLBM who manage these sensitive issues are proficient, kind, understanding... Human.
I wish I could say there were no cons, because the people and culture are really lovely, But...
• Projects here are still being routed on paper with a rubber sign off stamp.
• New hires (especially freelance) experience at least a week of pain on start up. E-mail is not set up. Server access is not set up. There are no instructions on setting up phones, There is no company directory distributed. Processes are not explained. These are all basic tools employees need to do their job - regardless of whether a person will be there for a few days or several years. New hires (especially freelancers) are generally shown to their workstations and left to fend for themselves. If an employee figures out a workaround "just to get by for now" it's likely that's what they'll be working with for the duration of their stay.
• Workstations - especially creative workstations - need updating/maintenance. Many are too old and creaky to handle the workload.
• The wifi doesn't work. It's difficult to log on and drops out so often it becomes frustrating and productive to use.
• Either there aren't enough places to shut a door and make a conference call or personal call or staff needs to be encouraged more to use the rooms that are available. It's an open floor plan office and there are far too many loud speakerphone and personal conversations that are distracting to anyone within earshot. And pretty much everyone is within earshot.
Fix this stuff and this easily becomes a 5 start review.
Advice to Management
• Establish an on-boarding process.
•Establish digital routing.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day – interviewed at Publicis LifeBrands Medicus (New York, NY).
Met with several different people; all interviewers were fully transparent and delightful. Able to see a shared, proud culture through the interviews, which was incredibly refreshing. People around the office seemed happy - there was a lot of laughter coming from a training session. Also, very clear on next steps.
