Pros

- Great benefits, thanks to Publicis
- Social & volunteer opportunities
- Solid reputation

Cons

- Trying to become a full service agency, but there is little communication between capabilities
- Low pay while the company continues to waste money on lavish open bars & special appearances; employees recently went 3 years without a merit increase
- High turnover
- Erratic senior management whom acknowledge problems, but make little effort to fix them
- The standard procedure for getting promoted is to find a better offer elsewhere, then threaten to quit

Advice to Management

Encourage collaboration & company pride; implement programs that hold departments accountable for pushing their practices forward in an increasingly competitive industry, instead of scrambling to hang on while employees leave for better opportunities.

    Pros

    They do a great job of hiring highly talented, smart and hard-working people resulting in impressive work and strong team camaraderie. They have great benefits including holidays and vacation time.

    Cons

    They are under such extreme pressure to meet their revenue goals set by Publicis that they tend to go through lay offs more often than ever before. They lay off key talent since the work is currently not there; however, it's short-sighted because they'll win new business and need to quickly ramp up.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to listening and respecting employees instead of treating them like a number.
