Always fast paced and exciting. At times, an inefficient workplace due to sheer scale.

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    *4 summer Fridays off - and you got to choose them. The company I left McCann for gave us 4 Fridays off but they were based seniority, client need, and you had to work an extra half hour each day to redeem them - it wasn't "free"
    * Dec 25-Jan1 off, but if you worked that week you received 3 days off in 1Q for each day you worked
    So say Christmas fell on Sunday and you opt to work M-F instead of vegging out, you'd have 15 days of to use before Mar 31 the next year
    Benefits, technology perks/discounts, global reach

    Cons

    Being a young professional on a field team, I would've liked more regular interaction with HQ, maybe an annual NY trip for training, meeting the folks I'm talking to regularly, and expand my outlook and perception of the company. Training locally should've been more formalized, especially since the local leadership was threatening retirement

    The work was challenging but the politics was not.

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Interesting work that allowed me to improve my skill set. The other artists I worked with were helpful as well as talented. Working in downtown Birmingham was a big plus.

    Cons

    The art directors were very opinionated about whom they would work for to the point of nepotism. Lost my job to a friend of a friend even though my manager assured me my work, attitude and professionalism were not an issue.
