    Pros

    work/life balance is good and able to be your own leader. Great people.

    leadership plays favorites for promotions, and if you aren't leaderships favorite then you don't get promoted. New leadership have no grasp at what is happening on the bottom. No clear goal as to how to position the team.

    Set goals for the performance department because it's chaos

    I worked at MRM//McCann full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Most of the creatives, account and support staff are good people.

    The leadership is poor and constantly changing. The New York office takes all the money. Little regard for employee advancement, or raises.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that the management is the part of the problem. Completely out of touch.

        Pros

        Free Soda and Candy but that is where it stops!

        Cons

        Plan to have the Account Service team drive the timelines. No one listens if you are overworked and working crazy hours and the compensation is terrible. I noticed that the office moral here is really low and seems to be getting worse.

        Advice to Management

        I thought this was going to be a good career move but might be the worst of my career so far. If you want talented people to want to work here you need to reward them for hard work! 20 dollar spot rewards does not make up for not getting pay increases. Don’t tell me you are on company freezes but then promote people who are higher up and tell me to congratulate them.

        I worked at MRM//McCann full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        Small office and suburban vibe, location is ok if you’re tired of commuting to the city. The commute is decent overall.

        Cons

        SVP leadership. Wouldn’t cut it in a metropolitan office. Very poor people mgmt skills. Very reactive in their approach to account mgmt

        Advice to Management

        Clean out the remaining Gillespie crew and re-staff senior leadership with more diverse, stronger leadership team.
