    I have been working at FCB Global full-time

    Pros

    Planning is highly respected by other departments. The planning team is full of diverse specialities. There are consistent training opportunities. The head of planning, John Kenny, cares deeply about the growth and happiness of his employees.

    Cons

    Like all agencies they struggle with work life balance. Here there really seems to be the expectation of always on and always available.

    Pros

    $1 coffee bar and good furniture.

    Cons

    Lunch room mentally, you better fork up your pudding snacks to sit at the cool table. Poor leadership, preaches they want to provide work life balance but then over allocates everyone. Makes horrible leadership hiring decisions. Only pays attention to the people who throw tantrum. Don’t value experts just people willing to put up with drama. There’s a reason for the mass exodus of employees.

    Pros

    Big creative players; lots of experience on both creative and account sides; award-thirsty agency.

    Cons

    The most political place one can work. Zero regard for working parents, personal life or work-life balance. They don't nurture talent or assistance to move departments or find new roles where you can succeed.
