    I worked at Publicis

    Pros

    There are some good accounts to work on at Publicis, and the Christmas parties were fantastic. Like many ad agencies, there are fun perks like soda, snacks, pool and ping pong tables, and dogs in the office, but these perks are lost in crazy work loads and not enough to retain top talent.

    Cons

    Crazy work load expectations and a lack of consistent promotion. There is also a lack of assigning projects and work based on merit and talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership should see the high turnover as a sign to take employee morale more seriously and make lasting changes, not just apply band-aids in the form of "perks" such as parties and video games and dogs in the office.

    I have been working at Publicis

    Pros

    Publicis is extremely well regarded as an agency, offering its employees the opportunity to develop advertising for some of the world's largest and most prestigious clients. Ability to work closely with many Fortune 100 companies is unparalleled.

    Cons

    Like many ad agencies, Publicis can struggle with employee retention issues often related to work-life balance and career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep talking. As a communications company, we can always strengthen messages from leadership to the troops. Transparency is king. Inform us, enroll us, and watch how we can come together as a team to change to the business.
