    Pros

    Great, creative people, plenty of "happy hour" opportunities and free doughnuts on Fridays.

    Cons

    Working in an often volatile, abusive, "walking on egg shells" environment was not inspiring in the least.

    Pros

    Decent pay; decent brands; one of the better broadcast shops in town.

    Cons

    Senior leadership is too involved with the day-to-day. They should be focused on growing the agency with new business.

    Pros

    Alcohol served at every staff meeting. Talented, inspiring, and fun loving peers. Lots of parties and perks.

    Cons

    Long hours. Creatives are sucked dry and spit out. High employee burn-rate. Low priority given to employee retention, development, and advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The amount of money and energy spent on training new hires and getting them up to speed would go much further if focused on developing existing staff.

    Current Contractor - Sales Representative in New York, NY

    I have been working at Publicis as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent workforce with good positive attitudes at same level but the egos grow exponentially with each level up the management ladder. Almost seems as if they hire those that will "drink the punch" and not push back on the flawed ideology of the corporate structure.

    Cons

    Pay is the lowest versus competitor employees I've spoken with. The leadership is fake, reciting the same lines of "appreciation" almost as if they are following a script or reading from a teleprompter. Its hard to stand out when you thrive and the same "atta-boy" given to you is also given to the worst performer on the team. Now, any of you that are a low performer can view this is a positive if you prefer. And don't even thinking about a promotion!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you give more work to a person because they stand out from the rest, they should be compensated for their extra efforts and extra time put in each week. Do not take your employees for granted. Without us, you have nothing.
