Pros

I worked with some smartest coolest people in my career

Cons

Senior management, AS, Creative Project managment work in cylos with no support to the teams

Advice to Management

Senior managment needs to check the egos and support the teams that make the day to day happen. The current GM of Saatchi and Saatchi Wellness is a numbers guy who makes it clear as he walks the halls how expendable his people are. The current CCO lacks any kind of backbone to lead her people and they walk all over her

    Pros

    come into the office whenever, just get your work done you can slack off on your work for the most part - i.e. not much accountability big name clients there's a lot of beer around casual, but definitely people who spend a lot on image (clothing wise)

    Cons

    you can slack off on your work for the most part - i.e. not much accountability they have no sense of what it means to do digital work the employee hierarchy is really set up for broadcast and print art directors/copywriters/creative directors kind of treat most people like they're beneath them there's a lot of beer around a weird male/female dynamic going on; not outright sexist but not equal either seems like most people there are new (less than 1 year)

    Advice to Management

    work on retaining a long-term staff

    Pros

    Laid back attitudes. A lot of allowance for personal life as long as you're not on deadline. Flexible hours.

    Cons

    Very little accountability for work on all levels. Most people just avoid taking any responsibility for work, and management encourages it. People are just making it up as they go along and trying to shift work to someones else or another department. Take initiative at your own risk.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many managers who have been there for 10+ years, are no longer contributing, and are holding the company back. Find out what people's skills are and allow them to move to other departments or pitch in beyond their department role. Restructure executive leadership and hold people accountable for their actions.
