Pros

McCann Worldgroup in SF with a client roster that includes Microsoft and Nortel ensure job security in this shaky economy. In addition, as a full service agency, it provides ample opportunity for individuals to grow and/or test different components of the advertising business. There is a lot of work and they welcome all hands to help out.

Cons

Due to the nature of the clients, there is a lot of hard work to be done. This can mean long days, late hours and sometimes even weekends. And the rumor is that McCann pays a lot less than the rest of the agencies in the city.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Perhaps help employees with the work-life balance; in addition, perhaps provide greater salary packages, or at least yearly bonuses for employees.

    Solid resume builder but often lost in the shuffle

    Pros

    Well known client porftolio and great learning experience working on global brands. Truly embracing integration between departments/funtions and clients are seemingly on board. There appears to be a fair work/life balance, although the balance seems to be shifting towards WORK/life.

    Cons

    Agency is on the large side (600+ employees) and often times individuals get lost in the shuffle. Pay is reportedly less than other agencies in the area and as a result, turn over rate is high.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sr. Mgmnt has done a great job in turning things around at McCann Worldgroup SF. It's a long road, and I feel as if they are only half way there. As with any large organization, no one will ever be truly happy with senior management, but I feel overall they are executing on the task at hand.
