    I worked at Havas Worldwide full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was a great agency on the rise with a tight group of smart folks. Creative seemed to be strong and possibly stronger now. Because there is no culture, you don't feel obligated to spend very long hours

    Cons

    Since some high level departures the new heads of the agency are making it weaker. It feels like a money grab and instead of making an agency they're leeching off a once great place.

    Advice to Management

    For the next round of lay offs fire yourself
