    The people are really nice, the benefits are great, and higher management usually understand that you have a life too.

    Pros

    -Great benefits
    -Cool office
    -Nice area
    -Nice coworkers

    Cons

    -Core ideas for campaigns/plans aren't resonated to the rest of creative, so when I'm given stuff to work on, I'm not really sure what's going on
    -Long hours when it comes close to client reviews/meetings and gaining new business, but I think that's everywhere in the industry

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate where ideas are going more openly so the rest of the office (creative especially) can better the work given before them.

    Pros

    Company is on the right track for success. Lots of digital training initiatives. Getting stronger in New Business. Fun environment.

    Cons

    NY office is in a horrible location, though it is good for commuters. It would be better if we co-existed with Modem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Gianinno may want to shake up senior leadership in the NY office to help company elevate to the next level.

    I have been working at Publicis USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This agency draws amazing talent and has a solid national client with T-Mobile. That keeps everyone busy & keeps the agency producing lots of work.

    Cons

    There is not a deep roster of other clients. There are not a lot of other national agencies in town if things don't work out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On the whole culture is healthy, would hope communication from management improves/increases.

    Pros

    Great work environment, Company deals with co-workers fairly. Many people leave the company and then come back. Spacious and colorful

    Cons

    Depending on the department and title many feel it takes yrs to be eligible for a transfer. Didnt really share inhouse opportunities with departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel they are doing a great job. Great interpersonal skills & can be a place someone can work at for yrs.

    I have been working at Publicis USA

    Pros

    As an intern we were given real work and the intern project kept us super busy. It was a great learning experience and got a chance to meet and work with great people.

    Cons

    Although I worked on a real account, I wish I had been able to float around to other accounts and help wherever needed rather than just wait for work on my one account.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the creative interns float around and do work on any and all accounts whenever available. More experience, and more interesting for everyone.

    I have been working at Publicis USA

    Pros

    Despite the fact that it owns many businesses, it allows them to maintain culture. As long as you have a good cultural fit in your placement, you still get all of the scale benefits of being part of a large, european group.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to get anything that impacts more than one company approved. Also, you are required to use internal partners for projects (IT) that are usually competency-challenged.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Moving in the right direction with online media focus, but need to let the groups manage to the lifecycle of the products.
