      Great coworkers, toxic culture

      Pros

      Pros: - Some of the smartest co-workers I’ve ever had. I worked on a tight knit team that was truly a pleasure to work with. - Nice office space - Not too hierarchical (up to a certain level). Generally teammates weren’t snobs about working with people “below” them in level as long as they produced good work.

      Cons

      - Probably the most toxic work environment I’ve ever experienced. Politics at pretty much any company are to be expected, but FCB takes it to another level. Backstabbing, lying, gossiping, and an overall cliquey culture. My particular EVP had a “rule with fear” mentality and would rather scare her team into respecting her than anything else. Public humiliation for anyone who made a misstep was a favorite tactic of hers. I truly don’t know how she is still employed, but this type of behavior is not uncommon. - Pre-Covid, work from home was almost unheard of. You needed a specific reason to WFH, and you better not expect to do it often. - Lots of talk about diversity, little action. I never saw leadership making an actual effort to recruit for, hire, promote, or mentor people of color - even the ones who were rockstars. Very whitewashed. - Low pay. I actually had HR tell me that I may need to “go outside of the box” when looking for an Account Supervisor and consider candidates with non traditional experience “because we don’t pay as much as most other agencies in Chicago.” Nontraditional experience is fine, but because we didn’t want to pay a competitive wage....?
