    Pros

    Culture, co-workers, and bosses, all great.

    Cons

    Long hours on my account, and all assistant planners start at a non-negotiable $30k, which is painful.

    I have been working at McCann Worldgroup

    Pros

    -Young crowd -Located in a nice area -Happy hour -Very casual dress code -Get 4 Summer Fridays off -Some nice people to get to know

    Cons

    -VERY straight hierarchy -Not very team oriented -Extremely low salary -VERY long hairs -A lot of people working here are either very self centered, lazy, or not every bright -HR is very disorganized Like a lot of the other agencies, UM is very top heavy. Junior staff is often taken for granted and not paid attention to. When it comes down to it, upper management only care about themselves and saving their own ass. The ironic thing is that the office is open layout, emphasizing "open communication" when in fact, there is none. Rather than address employees' departures from the agency, senior staff choose to ignore it and continue on w/ their day.

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup

    Pros

    McCann is a great company to work for with room for with a lot of room for advancement. They have a roster of amazing clients=large budgets. That said, there is a lot to be learned when working with a large budget. There are great training programs that the company provides.

    Cons

    Entry level pay is not necessarily competitive with other agencies given the amount of overtime that you must work as an entry level employee. Reviews do not always reflect ability and performance. There are occasions where employees are promoted prematurely and are not well trained to manage others, therefore effecting the rest of the group.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at McCann Worldgroup

    Pros

    McCann Worldgroup in SF with a client roster that includes Microsoft and Nortel ensure job security in this shaky economy. In addition, as a full service agency, it provides ample opportunity for individuals to grow and/or test different components of the advertising business. There is a lot of work and they welcome all hands to help out.

    Cons

    Due to the nature of the clients, there is a lot of hard work to be done. This can mean long days, late hours and sometimes even weekends. And the rumor is that McCann pays a lot less than the rest of the agencies in the city.

    I have been working at McCann Worldgroup full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Even in an office of 250+ it had a family feel about it and everyone knows everyone. It is a fun places to work, I really enjoyed my time here and was sad to go. You are expected to work hard and put in the hours but the experience you will receive is second to none. Fantastic resources, are constantly kept up to date with what the company is achieving and the industry as a whole.

    Cons

    They do love their paperwork! Very bureaucratic by nature, you need to complete a form in order to do anything. It is difficult to advance, it will very often depend on personality rather than ability.
