    I have been working at McCann Worldgroup full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Essential to parent company's success. Strongest integrated global brands in IPG portfolio. Lot's of autonomy, everyone is expected to make an impact. Strong client focus.

    Cons

    Constant change, shifting priorities and uneven leadership. Inconsistent compensation practices with little structure. Weak managers and HR, used to be run by finance - which is changing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can't satisfy clients with dissatisfied employees. It's great the the company surveys its employees but managers must act on the results.

    Learned multiple aspects of advertising while being overworked, underpaid, and terribly managed.

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    My department gave me a lot of freedom to independently manage my own projects. I was continuously challenged with new responsibilities and therefore learned an incredible amount.

    Cons

    Unless you have a stellar boss, clients can demand 100% of your time, day or night. (It's advertising, true. But a great manager knows when to say, "sorry, this will have to be the first thing accomplished tomorrow morning. It's 8pm"). There was a poor work/life balance and an inequity between team members regarding workload.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smaller teams and departments seem to go unnoticed by upper management. Overall corporate goals and values were not reflected in my department. There seemed to be very little appreciation for the hard work and overwhelming hours that my team committed over the years. It was extremely rare to see a promotion. Even rarer for someone to get a raise.
