Hi, I'm a first time mom-to-be here who is looking for a work from gome copywriting / proofreading job for the next couple of months. I'm experienced at LeoBurnett / Publicis from overseas and has worked on multiple 360 campaigns & prominent brands. Would appreciate the help!

You get the most well-known agency on your resume and the benefits are as good as you can get.
Lots of kissing the ring to progress your career.

Day off for volunteering, some parties in the company seem to care about having a positive social impact outside of the company.
Very poor (and often total lack of) communication and training - my former manager simply refused to train me on parts of my job. Bullying, condescension, and gaslighting are seen as acceptable behaviors for managers to engage in. You are not supported or valued at this firm.

Impressive name on your resume? Though honestly I doubt that these days…
I would not reccomend anyone work for Leo Burnett. I worked on a CPG account where the team had no respect for one another. Constant battles between account and creative, no collaboration at all. When mandated to go into the office, it only applied to certain team members. No respect for your personal life/time. Meetings consistently started at or after 5. Worked through Christmas. No mentorship, and outside of the DEI department and ERGs, it is not a comfortable place for people of color. By far the worst work experience I ever had. Very tough time on my mental health while working here. It’s not even worth the name on your resume.1

Stable work, decent pay, working remote isn't impossible though NOT encouraged.
I've been at Leo for 1.5 years as an SAE. When I started, I wasn't offered much training. It was a very steep learning curve and I wasn't offered any support, just told to read a manual over and over. I've been better performing since I've taken more initiative. However, now that I'm showing mastery of my role, I've not been able to move to another account. This is an issue as I was promised the ability to move around to avoid burn out.
