    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.

    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.

  3.  

    Supposedly the 'flagship' of the U.S. Publicis presence, but lacking in flagship accounts, scale, and 'buzz'.

    Pros

    Great people - supportive leadership. Relatively consistent leadership at the top (CEO, Creative, Strategy) despite some churn at the President leve.

    Cons

    A bit adrift in the industry - spinning off Modem from headquarters seemed a bit misguided, given clients' stated need for a truly integrated offering.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Prove that the Modem/Publicis offering is truly integrated, and that you operate as one unified company. Stake out and win a client that will bring the shop some buzz.

    Pros

    An amazing culture that promotes personal and professional growth.

    Cons

    They're really aren't any, but I guess it all depends on your team, your position, and your client.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better pay and advancement... open communication as it relates to performance and personal improvement areas.

    Pros

    experience, learning the ropes, known brands

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees more fairly. Teaching is good but rest is better.

    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.
