    I worked at Havas Edge full-time

    Pros

    Work attire is extremely casual. Feel free to roll out of bed and go to work.

    Cons

    Small company with frustrating work environment and very low pay. No cultural. Strict 8am-5pm work environment with no work life balance. Good luck if you want to take a day off or even a ten minute break while working. No employee perks. Cheap if you may ask. Boring company. No outings or any type of employee appreciation events. Save yourself the trouble because you will want to leave within two weeks. Most important, favoritism plays a huge role at this company. You will feel welcomed if you become management's pet and slave for 8+ hours.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Havas Edge full-time

    Pros

    Great teamwork, flexible with time off, managers are easy to talk to, everyone is pretty respectful and kind to each other.

    Cons

    Poor Holiday schedule (should invoke summer Friday's!), long hours, low pay.. but it's the name of the game in advertising.

    I worked at Havas Edge full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun employees, great first agency to work at because you get to see the ins and outs of a busy ad network

    Cons

    Not much room for growth, low pay, too stuck in an old school mentality (TV first, instead of Digital or mobile first)

    I have been working at Havas Edge

    Pros

    Casual dress code, donuts on fridays

    Cons

    This company offers no growth opportunity and people only get promoted due to favoritism rather than quality. A lot of the time open positions are kept very quiet and filled without a fair opportunity. The VPs do not care to talk to the "little people" so they don't do anything about how badly management is run. There is no structure, you get very low pay but have to work long hours with no recognition so in turn there is a lot of turnover and a lot of unhappy employees. The morale is very low, this company does nothing to keep their workers happy. Only 2 company sponsored events max. You want a company with perks and a fun environment? Keep looking. Unless you're a higher up the only perk you will get is donuts Friday mornings that the business development department pays for out of pocket.
