    Pros

    Some lovely humans work here. They're the ones that make you want get up in the morning. Occasionally, you'll be able to make something great.

    Cons

    Very top heavy - lots of miscommunication between levels. Long hours. Not much of a culture. Salaries are lower than average when getting internally promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your people or else they'll shop around.

    I worked at FCB Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The ever popular coffee bar
    Location
    Some good, smart people

    Cons

    Operates like a sweat shop, including the way desks are set up, extremely hard to focus in uber open environment
    Giant cliques like high school, including bullying by a manager ignored by HR

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to do what they’re hired for and someone with 20 years of expertise should be respected and not subject to bullying

    I worked at FCB Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - flexible time off, great work-life balance (if you need to WFH or take off, you just need to find coverage and do what you need to do as long as it doesn't affect work - very supportive teammates)
    - fun Account teams -- I've had only one bad experience with Account teams in all of my 4 years
    - smart, collaborative teams from all departments (Analytics, Strategy, UX, Creative, etc.)
    - as a PM, you don't get too involved in any Creative team drama if there were but you'll be at ease to know this company has the most mature employees I've ever met (it's really mind-boggling to know even at large corporate companies, "professionalism" is purely subjective)
    - extremely supportive PM department led by Chris Tempas and Graham Johnson (they'll be forever missed in my books)

    Cons

    Barely any - I only left to explore other industries aside from healthcare.

    The only thing is maybe establishing clear roles and definition from their sister agency, FCB New York. Because of FCB NY's lack of structure and clear process, it's hard to share resources with them especially during times of tough deadlines at FCBH.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great vibes!

    Pros

    Seminars, workshops, many leaders and experts to learn from, agency produces top level work, $1 coffee bar

    Cons

    If you're new to agency work, a smaller agency might be a good place to get your feet wet

    I worked at FCB Health full-time

    Pros

    Great people, Great culture, across their network. From Cure, Area23, Neon, and FCBHealth itself. Ability to work remotely, Flexible Time Off (with approval). Great networking opportunities, Mentors and Sponsors. Grown up Rules, Get your Job Done and you shall succeed. Floor plans, open space concept is great.

    Cons

    The Hiring process takes forever. Just like any company, there are a people who lack initiative, drive, need some handholding. Communication between HR and employees, and candidates is very slow. Their ideology of hierarchy for positions is great, but lacks some execution. Want to promote from within, yet look to hire externally for positions, due to employees not being able to move up in position once a year. Afraid to tell your employees, the truth. They are not ready to move up in position then let them know. Depending on the department, work life balance might be bad. If you are in an operational role (IT, HR, Operations, etc.) with the company, you are there 24/7. If you are a developer, creative, copy, or any role where you work for a client, work life balance is better. Only so much managers can do for their employees who are overworked, to keep them in the company (increase staff in some departments)

    Advice to Management

    - Pay attention to your HR, Make sure they are delivering what they promise. Do not be afraid to hire people with a diverse career path, or those who are changing their career at a later age. Look into what HR is actually doing with their candidates, and not just what they report to you at weekly meetings. Do not say you are inclusive and want to hire the best, and then make them wait forever to get into the company, or not give them a position at all.

    + Continue with your inclusion and diversity classes offered, always great information, but follow through with the ideology. Continue with your mentorship program, they offer a chance for junior member to grow personally and professionally. Keep up with the physical updates of the offices, the staff enjoys the room and the changes. The open floor plan is great, but you need to add more quite booths for private calls with vendors and clients. Employee reviews should be every 6 months, not yearly. employee expectations and metrics to be met and discussed more than once a year, for personal and professional growth to be achieved.
