    Pros

    Roster of clientele, forward-thinking company with Digital focus, vacation time, upward mobility and recognition for exceptional work, office environment, strong executive leadership

    Cons

    Like any large corporate machine, it's a bit inflexible for certain situations. For instance, rotations/promotions on larger client teams have a "waiting line". Must put yourself out there and get involved to be recognized. Additionally, mobility between sister companies under the Publicis umbrella is discouraged.
