A little tough to get to know everyone, but it's a great environment once you're in

Pros

Great flexibility, tons of opportunities for learning and networking in the advertising industry, as well as others. The people are talented, intelligent, helpful and kind. Beer Friday - senior management attend and they're very accessible. Great opportunities for travel, depending on your position. Large network because of being part of the Publicis family, and a very respected name in the industry.

Cons

It can be very clique-y. It's definitely tough to get to know people, and I'm a very outgoing person. It's hard to get to know people who aren't on your team or within your capability. However, once you're in, you're in - and that's great. It just takes some time.

    Passionate, inspiring people - but not in all accounts

    Pros

    Working with really talented and smart people. People are generally good-hearted and the culture is very dynamic and passionate. If you find yourself in a good account team and under supportive (not egoistic) leaders you can go really far.

    Cons

    Politics do exist, especially in the bigger accounts where there are a lot of layers. Big focus on profit margins often has consequences to employees' work/life balance. You have to learn to say no very firmly in order to survive in the long-term.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take people's work-life balance JUST as seriously if not more than you do your profit margins, or you WILL lose all your best talent and erode the reputation you've built.

    Great place to work; pay scale needs to improve

    Pros

    Smart people, engaging projects, part of a big network. Good benefits and great work environment. Bottomline: Truly an agency for the digital age

    Cons

    Pay scale compared to industry is an area of concern.
    Possibility of growth depends upon location, network within company. A standardized approach would be nicer...which is in place but like any agency difficult to execute

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More fluid career change possibilities between offices, and Publicis Groupe companies globally would be a great benefit. Good thing is management has already identified this as an initiative for 2010.

    A way to identify mid-manager with leadership talent and a process to groom them for bigger responsibilities needs to be established.
