      Pros

      - Great coworkers, creative environment, fun personalities - Lots of opportunity to learn different areas of the business - Fun and interesting brands/clients

      Cons

      - Very fast-paced, even for social media (this can be good and exciting, but also a watch out for burnout) - Processes could use some refining so that they're not so manual. Some projects feel like they take longer or are more complicated than they should be because of this.

      Perks, Challenges, Opportunity

      Pros

      They take care of their own. The amount of perks, benefits, random bonuses, rewards and days off are unmatched. A new challenge is always present if you want to take it, Havas ALWAYS provides an open doorway and opportunity to flex your knowledge or increase your skillset. As far as new business goes, the future is bright.

      Cons

      Hours can get crazy for very short stints depending on your vertical/seasonality, but name me an industry that doesn't.

      Pros

      You learn a lot, it is a very fast paced environment. The culture is a relatively young demographic.

      Cons

      There is not much guidance on learning things, therefore you mostly learn new material on your own. The hours can be very crazy at times. High pressure for everything to be perfect the first time.
