    I worked at McCann Worldgroup full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small agency feel with access to vast global resources, great people, decent hours. decent money (neither great, nor bad). Could not learn more about our business anywhere else. Great name on your resume.

    Cons

    As the structure is small, there is little room to advance your career unless you are willing to transfer to a different state or country

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep growing and you will retain your best talent

    I have been working at McCann Worldgroup full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun environment, nice work place, good people on working teams

    Cons

    Never a thank you for working 70+ hrs a week. Have worked 100+ hours in one week and received a $20 gift card and 3 comp days (which I likely won't be able to use). Way too many hours and giving up too much personal life/family for nothing in return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Say thank you once in a while to the specific teams and people. Walk by areas when you're in the office late at night or weekend to say thank you. Or just stop by an area where you know the team(s) are working a ton of hours and just say thank you.

    Pros

    Efficient, friendly company. Offered me a job after my 3 month internship was over.

    Cons

    I interned for free and the company had just reduced personnel so it was a little disorganized.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Work life balance is there. Largest business unit owned by IPG. Great history of creating memorable ad campaigns. Really good people.

    Very dependent on large client spend. Changes at the senior management level has created a level of uncertainty for the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course with current senior management team.

    Pros

    If you already possess strong skills you can perform. Level of competition is rather low-easy to stand out.

    Cons

    You won't learn anything new. People are more concerned about themselves than development of others. Agency places politics over producing good work for clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Break-down levels of management so senior executives can see/hear what's actually happening.
