    Great collaborative environment among strategy, creatives and account

    Continue to listen to your employees and make changes.

    Pros

    Individual people are smart and willing to work. Everybody tries to make the best of a bad situation.

    Cons

    No culture leading to consistently low morale
    Working your life away is an expectation
    Company never shows they value employees
    No transparency
    Executive leadership team is a mess - nobody understands their roles and they don’t listen when given feedback
    Extremely top heavy - a million SVPs doing junior level work

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul the place and listen to your employees. Everyone is leaving for a reason. Care about why.

    I worked at McCann Health full-time

    Pros

    - Located right by Grand Central
    - Mostly friendly staff
    - Free snacks?

    Cons

    - Very cliquish, you're a ghost to people if you don't fall in line with them.
    - Work is very hard to come by at a junior level for some reason.
    - The company is obsessed with reminding its employees with how diverse they are 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    Stop patrolling the halls to make yourself appear approachable every day and try something a little less intimidating.

    I worked at McCann Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Right by grand central
    - Under holding company IPG which means better benefits

    Cons

    - Leadership team doesn't care for their employees and they contribute immensely to the political environment by playing favorites
    - Merger of Humancare and Healthcare to become McCann Health NY was not executed well. Leadership promised things like "hybrid-training" but never followed through
    - HR is a mess. Don't bother coming to them because all they'll do is complain back to you and not take action to fix things. No empathy and recruiters will low-ball you

    Advice to Management

    - Follow through with you words and don't make false promises
    - Build a collaborating team environment and show appreciation to those who work hard
