    Pros

    Good company with great people and good culture and ability to move up if you prove yourself. Lots of training and development opportunities. Upper management is genuine and caring.

    Cons

    Titles and hierarchy can be messy, especially when reporting to multiple managers. While some are promoted quickly (especially upper management), more junior employees may find themselves stuck.

    Advice to Management

    Would be beneficial if management put in place a system to track employee goals and career path in a more organized and concrete fashion.

    Pros

    I worked as a freelance account executive here for a few months. People were pretty easy to work with and not a lot of egos. For the most part, there was a good amount of work life balance. Plus, they have a coffee bar, which is a nice perk.

    Cons

    I can't really think of too many cons since I was here for a brief period of time.

    Advice to Management

    Management is pretty good and was involved.

    Pros

    The best reasons of working at FCB are the great people that work there, they are very smart and hard working, and there is always a lot of work going on. The work and life balance is pretty good too. There are also good clients to work for, and you can do some superlative creative campaigns there.

    Cons

    A few downsides to working at FCB is sometimes when there is a lot of work on one account, it takes a while to find the appropriate help to supplement the account. There are also some long hours you have to put in, and some departments leave too early.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to have more town hall meetings so all of the employees' concerns can be heard; that way everyone feels they are part of the success in the future. Hiring for positions should be quicker.

    Pros

    Will pay for the hours if you provide results. The work experience is considerable.

    Cons

    Hard and stringent work fosters a bootcamp like experience. Its everyone for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Be an advocate for teamwork and develop trust. Reward hard work. Perhaps then the company will stop bleeding of clients when employee go the extra mile.

    Pros

    FCB Health wins a lot of awards (for good reason); huge emphasis on variety in your day to day work—video, digital, print, etc.

    Cons

    Herald Square isn't the most exciting neighborhood... but with the PATH and Penn Station both within a block, you can't beat the commute!

    Pros

    Great benefits and vacation. Coffee bar is decent. Company has sporadic happy hours and some fun perks. If you get in the right group, you can go far but the quality of work has declined in recent years.

    Cons

    Not a lot of opportunity for changing accounts or for branching out and learning tangential skills. It's hard to bypass the silo mentality here.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to promote talented people and leaders there —  you keep a lot of bad managers on staff. Also, stop treating the creative department like a sweatshop.


  11. Great people, great place to learn.
