I have been working at McCann Erickson full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

lots of days off, PTO's, summer days, 1/2 days before holiday's and Xmas week off....

Cons

raises have been frozen since 2008 with the exception of SVP's & EVP's..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

instead of arranging these mandatory silly forgettable workshops that are overseen by these corporate SVP and EVP's who end up abandoing ship after a year or two --and all becomes irrelevant..start giving your employees a raise and stop losing good talent and keep your promises.
(raises are still FROZEN for the under dogs)

    I have been working at McCann Erickson

    Pros

    smart people, but not progressive; so you can be smart

    Cons

    not very collaborative environment; people don't really care about people; you're only as good as the last great idea you personally created and there is not enough emphasis on growing the contribution of others; since business is not good everyone is just out for themselves.

    so many of the current clients are traditional/conservative and only want TV, so it is hard to do more progressive or digital work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    conduct serious reviews of senior leadership
    empower a stronger HR/Talent function

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
