    I worked at McCann Erickson full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free parking (although very small for the size of the company, be early if you want a decent spot).
    Cheap Bistro - chocolate Fridays.
    Good benefits.

    Cons

    There's a lot of snakes that'll praise you but turn on you when they speak to your manager as experienced first hand.
    I was bored a lot of the time waiting for work to come in. Constantly told to do "training" which I didn't have too much of a problem with but I could have worked from home for the most part of my employment there.
    Management was nice, didn't feel comfortable knocking on their door most of the time but overall, nice.
    Just be careful who you talk to there.
    Never felt that my job was safe at any point.

    Advice to Management

    Certain people are on a lot more money than what they actually do. They'll talk down to you.

    Pros

    Lots of responsibility
    Great exposure to brands
    Having McCann on your CV makes you very attractive to future agency recruiters

    Cons

    Long hours
    The salary to revenue ratio dictates if you will be

    Advice to Management

    Apply a bonus structure for all employees - so everyone's hard work is recognised and remunerated - not just your GADs and above solely reaping the benefits of their team's efforts.
