    Pros

    Working time is reasonable, not very stressful.

    Cons

    Few people are nice in this company, account acts like they are everybody else's boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Curb the attitude of your account people, they make the environment on the company really unpleasant and are always blaming others in the team for all mistakes that happen on the projects.

    I have been working at Regan Campbell Ward full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There is probably only one acct manager that you can learn from. Other than that it's status quo the location is convenient .

    Cons

    There are so many cons... The former owner probably got lucky and sold wasn't too sharp. The new president has no idea what is going on. There is probably one vp that's very respected other managers aren't in relationships/families so they have no clue other than to work like a dog and make everyone else stay and work ridiculous amount of hours

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This place will be in trouble if they lose one or two smart people and or accts mcann will have to fire the new pres or shut the office down

    I have been working at Regan Campbell Ward full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people for the most part. My department is well-known as a good place for new editors to get their feet wet.

    Cons

    Losing business bacause digital needs work, as well as some account execs who seem clueless and/or don't seem to get much done. Hours can be long, generally because of the disregard of some people here for other people's time. There doesn't seem to be much room to advance in house.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do something about digital. Shake up the Account Execs and perhaps have some creative people at the San Diego audience so they can interact with West Coast clients in person rather than just the AEs handling it. Other people's time is valuable not just the VPs so don't lave people hanging around needlessly.

    I worked at Regan Campbell Ward

    Pros

    Some of the people there are talented, hard working individuals. They deserve better than to be stuck here.

    Cons

    Company recently lost it's entire senior management. Neither Regan, Campbell, nor Ward are part of the organization anymore. President and HR have been there less than 4 months, there is no manageable workflow, process, or accountability trail for projects. The biggest warning sign is their lack of a digital routing solution. They are still printing out job bags and having traffic people carry them to desks. Having to sit through two monthly "Bagel Fridays" to hear about all the new business they're not winning despite tirelessly pitching is a clear indication this company won't last.

    I worked at Regan Campbell Ward full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of drinking and parties, dinners, car service, meal expenses. People can be friendly. Family-like atmosphere.

    Cons

    Politics dominates the scene. The best and hardest working employees are squeezed out by the mid-senior managers in power. Bad workflow. Few people actually do the work correctly. Many show-boaters, few implementors. Many computer illiterate workers, cannot embrace new methods. People who know the least talk the most. The bind lead the blind. Clueless VPs and directors keep hiring more of the same. Company does not invest in infrastructure. McCann has them on a short leash.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should get a new HR director, hire more competent people, clean out show-boaters and middle management.

    I worked at Regan Campbell Ward full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good place to gain some experience and put a recognizable name on your resume.
    People are generally friendly, big family atmosphere but if you aren't in the main 'group' you feel left out.

    Cons

    Very long hours, expect to work late nights and occasionally weekends.

    Extremely political management. Nepotism is prevalent and under-qualified family members were given promotions frequently.

    Account persons are 'yes men' and will do anything for the client; often resulting in unrealistic deadlines.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to letting people earn their way up, rather than giving handouts to family and their friends.
