    I worked at Publicis Healthcare Communications Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I liked being part of Publicis Groupe and the agencies within PHCG seemed more "with it."

    Cons

    I never understood the place. The CEO is MIA. Everything is driven by HR. this is odd in a advertising agency even in corporate. HR seemed to have a huge number of people compared to the other departments. That might be OK but the HR people did not seem to have any experience in the advertising or healthcare industry, so seemed completely out of touch, so when they came up with programs, they never made sense to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who understand or have worked in marketing, advertising, healthcare.

    Former Employee - Senior Vice President Human Resources in New York, NY

    I worked at Publicis Healthcare Communications Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Publicis had just finished a spree of acquisitions in the US. It was a unique opportunity to transform an organization.

    Cons

    The folks in Paris did not have a good understanding of US employment practices, and did not care to learn. Their lack of understanding of what was needed to incent people hurt our ability to attract and retain top talent,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you plan on moving in to a market to grow your business, you should make it a point to understand that market and allow management the latitude to reward its employees.

    Pros

    Very smart, creative employees, supportive HR. Good benefits and work-life balance. Exciting client engagements. Highly collaborative group.

    Cons

    Limited professional growth. Everyone wants to do strategy, but not the dirty work that supports it. Non-executive employees are spread thin. Poor technology infrastructure limits strategic capabilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think enabling infrastructure to back up strategic services.
