    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

    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.

    Pros

    Smart people, for the most part. Several opportunities to grow and develop professionally. Team work is usually a plus and most people are satisfied professionally

    Cons

    It never ends. Work-life balance is debatable, though most strive for it. Ends up being sacrificed for the next deadline

    Advice to Management

    More people work here than account management

    Pros

    Big agency, lots of departments to help find actual experts, freedom to get lost in the swarm of masses if you don't want to be a hero (its ok to just do you)

    Cons

    Lots of turnover with teams, managers, team members so can be hard to find your groove and get promoted, lack of identity and culture

    Advice to Management

    Don't really see how senior leadership can drill down to the details, but would be nice to see more initiative from HR or another group to manage culture a bit better

    Pros

    Zero. Other then the coffee bar. They lure you in with mint but work you the job of two people

    Cons

    Watch out for Wendi Goodman. This company is abusive and toxic. Leadership doesn’t exist. Don’t go here. Unless you really like free coffee

    Advice to Management

    Not sure how the ceo got such high ratings
