Pros

McCann Worldgroup in SF with a client roster that includes Microsoft and Nortel ensure job security in this shaky economy. In addition, as a full service agency, it provides ample opportunity for individuals to grow and/or test different components of the advertising business. There is a lot of work and they welcome all hands to help out.

Cons

Due to the nature of the clients, there is a lot of hard work to be done. This can mean long days, late hours and sometimes even weekends. And the rumor is that McCann pays a lot less than the rest of the agencies in the city.

Advice to Management

Perhaps help employees with the work-life balance; in addition, perhaps provide greater salary packages, or at least yearly bonuses for employees.

    Pros

    Well known client porftolio and great learning experience working on global brands. Truly embracing integration between departments/funtions and clients are seemingly on board. There appears to be a fair work/life balance, although the balance seems to be shifting towards WORK/life.

    Cons

    Agency is on the large side (600+ employees) and often times individuals get lost in the shuffle. Pay is reportedly less than other agencies in the area and as a result, turn over rate is high.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. Mgmnt has done a great job in turning things around at McCann Worldgroup SF. It's a long road, and I feel as if they are only half way there. As with any large organization, no one will ever be truly happy with senior management, but I feel overall they are executing on the task at hand.


  2. "Best place to learn about the advertising agency + great people & environment!"

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup as an intern

    Pros

    - Sean is very staff oriented, caring about the employees even the interns.
    - Friendly and helpful colleagues.
    - Monthly gathering for birthdays which help to create greater bond with employees
    - Good training provided from other McCann (other countries)
    - Great benefits if you get to be permanent
    - Office ambience are the best

    Cons

    - Should bring interns out more in terms of going for recording or shooting because its important to expose them.
    - Should include interns in internal meetings
    - Interns get different treatment but if you do know how to be friendly then should be fine. (You'll just have to start the conversation to improve the bond)
    - Few numbers of unfriendly colleagues
    - High spending on office parking as seasonal parking not for interns/freelance

    Advice to Management

    - Thinking of one right now. So far everything is great!
