    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Theyve got solid benefits and many great talents. Also a new and clean office space and building with a yoga studio.

    Cons

    An alarming number of employees at all levels and seniorities are leaving the agency very quickly. Very political and lots of walls between departments. The agency donest have much momentum due to little new account wins. Leadership is failing to meet their promises to refresh the agency because theyre failing to let go of old, conservative, slow moving clients and are not winning new, fast paced, innovative accounts.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - The people are great. Everyone is friendly, competent, supportive, respectful. - Lots of training opportunities. - Lately, the network has been extremely good at PRing the sh*t out of what they do, and there's a real global team effort behind that. It feels like you're part of something bigger than just your immediate team/office.

    Cons

    - Loose processes across the board (hiring, workflow & budget management, employee reviews & promotions etc) result in an environment that can feel quite political. This can be exciting at times as there's always room for improv & you get to develop your leadership skills, but if you're someone who joined the industry because they 'believe in great work' I think there's better agencies out there that have workflows geared towards rewarding input vs. personality. McCann is very personality-driven, and is better at speaking well about the work that they make rather than making work that speaks for itself. - Could be more women in senior management (as in every other agency I guess..)
