    "It's a character problem in Chicago"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Group Account Director in Chicago, IL

    I have been working at Havas Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is OK, the new office is nice, you get to go home before 8 every day. Lots of PTO.

    Cons

    The two guys running the agency are not good people. Its that simple. The problem is not that they are not competent and bright enough for their positions (which they aren't), but that they lie to and manipulate clients and employees, disrespect them (with prejudice and verbal abuse) and only care about themselves. As a consequence, an army of insecure and equally unreliable MDs and Group Directors has formed below them and no good creative work comes or will come out of that. I could go on but you probably got my point.

    I worked at Havas Worldwide for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Some great creative-minded people and a very open door, 'roll up your sleeves' culture. All ideas welcome at the table. Opportunity for growth if you are self motivated and willing to learn.

    Cons

    Shifting senior management that is scrambling at best and more concerned with their respective bottom lines than true collaboration. Long hours and little to no work life balance or raises. Clear lack of diversity at the top.
