    I have been working at Havas Edge

    Pros

    Casual dress code, donuts on fridays

    Cons

    This company offers no growth opportunity and people only get promoted due to favoritism rather than quality. A lot of the time open positions are kept very quiet and filled without a fair opportunity. The VPs do not care to talk to the "little people" so they don't do anything about how badly management is run. There is no structure, you get very low pay but have to work long hours with no recognition so in turn... there is a lot of turnover and a lot of unhappy employees. The morale is very low, this company does nothing to keep their workers happy. Only 2 company sponsored events max. You want a company with perks and a fun environment? Keep looking. Unless you're a higher up the only perk you will get is donuts Friday mornings that the business development department pays for out of pocket.

    Advice to Management

    If this is really a billion dollar business then start INVESTING IN YOUR EMPLOYEES! Take some notes from other successful companies who don't feel like success is just measured by racking up billions of dollars so the higher ups can buy expensive cars but measured by actually creating a positive and fun work environment where that money is put back into the people who do all the work for you and can't even afford to... buy McDonald's because of the heinous pay. Do something to heighten morale, put in place some sort of structure where people can actually grow, give equal opportunity to everyone when new positions are open, listen to your workers and act like you at least care otherwise you're going to keep having a high turnover and no motivated employees. Does the CEO even know how badly his company is run by the management? I don't think so and it obviously doesn't seem like he cares either because at the end of the day he still gets his billion dollar paycheck and that's all that matters.

    Pros

    No micro-managing and freedom/trust to do what you feel is best Actually promotes healthy work/life balance, no rewards for people who stay late just for the sake of staying late or appearances - refreshing! Great team and people who always have your back Laid back, chill vibe Dog friendly, lots of cute dogs big and small

    Cons

    Hollywood location is horrible! Loud and extremely distracting from the crazy filthy people on Hollywood Blvd. Location is also congested and lunch options are bad Company doesn’t pay for the expensive parking and most of us have to drive so not paying is not an option Lack of conference space, though there are some huge offices which could be better utilized

    Advice to Management

    Move offices to where it doesn’t smell like urine and a dirty Pokemon won’t try to attack you on your way to lunch, pay for parking (or at least a %), keep up all the good things! They outweigh the negative.
