    Variety of Projects

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsVariety of Work; Lots of opportunities; High Quality Talent; Large Company = Lots of Resources

    ConsSome of the people I've worked with in management positions have gotten lazy and aren't keeping up with the latest trends… They're essentially here for the salary and the safeness of a large organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very nice people, Great client. CTO needs to be more open minded.

    Powerpoint (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe Company appreciates outstanding work and loyalty. I had a great working relationship for several years with Publicis. I was always the consultant that got this client out of trouble when their New Business was sinking or their client's were unhappy from other freelancer's work. They always paid my invoice in a reasonable amount of time and without a struggle. The CTO (Patti) is very nice, cool-to-the-nth-degree, and professional)

    ConsUnfortunately there are employees who do not understand BIG Ad agency mentality and freak out under pressure. The client suffers and so do all the co-workers and freelancers surrounding that person. I was one of those people who suffered tremendously after a 6 year solid relationship with this company because of one very irresponsible and lazy individual. I do NOT blame Publicis at all. That person is now gone from the company and so is my relationship with this amazing corporation because of this one person's crude and poor work ethic. It baffles me that one reckless person can go from agency to agency without recourse.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more open minded to to those who were incredibly loyal and perhaps more revue needs to be applied to those who are full-time.

    Nothing Special

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood location. Some good people.

    ConsA lot of the creative overestimated their creative power. Ads were same old same old. Lots of late night work- there was a little bit of that culture of "let's stay late because why not."

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement should evaluate the work more closely. Ask if they are really serving the client and get involved more with the staff. Because an employee has a strong ego doesn't mean they produce interesting work.

    Underfunded contract

    Pharmaceutical Sales Representative (Current Employee) Omaha, NE

    ProsGreat product, amazingly caring customers & helping improve the quality of patients' lives!

    ConsToo large territories and micromanaging

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow tenured reps to sell more, learn from high performers and spend less time worrying about micromanaging

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Open minded, future thinking

    Vice President Creative (Former Employee) Plano, TX

    ProsThe executive, account and creative teams are extremely open to ideas from everywhere and were embracing digital as fast as I've ever seen a traditional agency do it.

    Amazing office space in Plano

    Very transparent about the state of business

    ConsAgencies are all alike. Work hours for the creatives are not the greatest.

    Pitching like mad for new business really wears out the employees who are involved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the transparency on the state of the business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
