    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.

    I worked at Publicis USA full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Nearly all of the people were extremely friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was pretty relaxed. I got to work on major brands.

    Cons

    There wasn't much chance of having big or unusual ideas approved, as the creative climate was fairly conservative and traditional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Approve and sell some bigger ideas, even though Publicis is more of a traditional agency. Also, train people in presentation skills.

    I worked at Publicis USA part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My boss was one of the nicest guys you could ask for. The company is Global so the possibilities are great to say the least. The work was good and some of the people were really lovely to work with.

    Cons

    Bringing in new management was the anchor that sank the ship; when you have someone who is not the right fit everything just goes down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every Executive isn't going to work; sometime a jerk is just that a jerk.

    experience, learning the ropes, known brands

    long hours, too old school of doing things, feels like working for an 80s agency

    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.

    Smart people but pretty unorganized

    I worked at Publicis USA

    Pros

    Good benefits provided to employees. You get a ton of time off and holidays per year, people are nice and the work days are 7.5 unless you have a project that demands more.

    Cons

    The Corp is very unorganized they constantly purchased people over the years but never properly integrated them. Overall minimal effort to fix that by mgmt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on properly integrating the companies. I found no direct or support was given from mgmt to help achieve this

    I worked at Publicis USA

    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.
