    Horrible culture, no work life balance. Lack of management and real talent to pull in any new business. New CCO John is scared and timid I don’t think he can win a room of clients over. Sexist environment no women have real say or power positions.

    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Havas Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The Peterson posse is gone, so there's hope. Cool office, good benefits. There's lots of nice people in the rank and file and some of the accounts beyond CitiBank are OK. It's just the management and the Citibank leadership that is flat out evil.

    Cons

    Just stay away from the Citibank account. The people who run it, particuliarly the creative leadership, are flat out bad people. They're bitter, mean-spirited bullies who are just plain bad people. They mistreat their employees and make day to day life on that account hellish. Complaint after complaint has been put in about them, to no avail. Stear clear of that account.

    "Rotating Door"

    Former Employee - Executive Creative Director in New York, NY

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Havas Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They can pay well and the new office is decent.

    Cons

    No one can build a career here, so just know that going in. You can have a few decent years, but ultimately they're like almost every other ad agency - running from account to account with no larger vision or plan. Run entirely by personality, not a hint of true leadership. But having Havas on your resume is no big boost.

    Pros

    A classic advertising agency, but it's possible to create good work life balance, depending on the account.

    Cons

    Very traditional in mindset. If you want to grow through the ranks to do TV this is your place.
