I worked at MWWPR full-time

Pros

Some prestigious clients, better work/life balance than other agencies, HR really tries to create and maintain a positive culture. Great location.

Cons

MWW is on a serious decline. There is more turnover than there has been in recent history and moral is pretty bad overall. Teams are very segmented and there are new people being added all the time and nobody seems to know what they do.

The new "Chief Social Strategist" is a cancer to the organization and has been a big reason for killing the morale for many people, not just those on the digital team. MWW's digital group had been one of the shining stars of the industry but that is not the case anymore. Creatives and strategists at all levels are treated like morons, constantly disrespected and overloaded with too much work with too little staff. What's worse is that everyone across the entire network of offices knows this but nothing has been done to fix it.

Advice to Management

Stop being so stubborn and admit you made some bad hires. If you don't think one bad egg can ruin an organization, you need to get your head out of the sand and see what's happening around you.

    I worked at MWWPR full-time

    Pros

    Summer Fridays, free snacks and drinks, flexible WFH days, decent benefits, fun office culture, some big-name clients, travel opportunities

    Cons

    It depends on your client and your manager, but they are generally tough on lower-level employees. Most senior-level staff is off-site more often than not, so junior staff members are left alone in the office. You are always expected to be available. I would sometimes get harassed on PTO. Not a lot of positive reinforcement. Top-heavy teams make it difficult to get promoted. High turnover.

    I have been working at MWWPR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual environment, bagel Thursdays, handful of really talented people

    Cons

    There are so many office politics going on in this place that nothing ever gets done. Senior management spends all their time talking behind each others backs and it is a constant power struggle.

    Meanwhile, the talented young professionals slave away on client deliverables while upper management stamps their name on it. Want to try something innovative at this agency? Don't waste your time - it will never get approved. Client work is mediocre at best, take your talents somewhere else.

    Unless your family is connected to the CEO somehow, don't plan on sticking around long. They'll replace you with the son or daughter of a big client or local politician.

    Advice to Management

    Stop badmouthing each other. It sets a bad example for younger staff and makes for an uncomfortable work environment. Nothing gets done this way.
