    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at FCB Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you're on the right account, you have potential to create good work. I don't personally see a lot of people staying after 5. Good amount of amenities, nice workspaces, free food, events, retreats., etc. In my experience, upper management is tough but lenient as long as you get your work done.

    Cons

    Pay feels a little low. Account's unwillingness to budge and push good design to the client. Repetitive, uncreative tasks for corporate clients in multiple language markets.

    Pros

    Company Culture is great ! Amazingly friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Beware working in the facilities department, that is the last place you want to be. Senior Management does not care for its employees and turnover rate is off the charts.
