I worked at FCB as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

It was a great environment to work in. Everyone was young and friendly. There's a great coffee bar and cafeteria. Plus, the office is located in a great area (right off of Michigan Avenue) in downtown Chicago.

Cons

The company is definitely on the decline. It has lost arguably their two biggest accounts within the past year, and they are slowly on their way to losing the majority of what is currently their biggest account.

    I worked at FCB full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people in my department were great and benefits weren't bad.

    Cons

    Bland, management has been over-constructed, ideas get shot down very quickly and clients (being mostly pharmaceutical) run the show and tell you what to do. There is no consulting, just scared account directors who do what they're told. Projects are half-assed, and no appreciation for creativity, just output. I left immediately after 2 months. There is also no communication internally, so projects are quickly executed with no timeline preparation. This shows in final product.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't take you employees for granted and have some kind of uniqueness, the company is so bland and safe.
