    I have been working at McCann Worldgroup full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    McCann is a busy, crazy, fun place to work. Lots of great things are happening here and they are good to their employees. I have worked at a number of different marketing and advertising agencies and this is probably the best I have experienced.

    Cons

    McCann shares the same downsides as other marketing firms with today's uncertain future for marketing and advertising.

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup full-time

    Pros

    Decent healthcare benefits and nice office environment

    Cons

    Working in Finance was horrible....

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff and make changes to retain them. It shouldn't be a revolving door. Current CFO seems to be "my way or the highway" without any concern of what type of work people are doing or how to make things better.

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup full-time

    Pros

    Some of the best, most creative people in the industry. Lots of exposure to award winning creative and top-shelf clients. Free coffee (you'll need a lot of it when you're working 60-80 hours a week.)

    Cons

    Long hours and unskilled management = too easy to burn out. Not enough opportunities exist to advance within the company. It's a highly old-school corporate culture, and McCann has struggled with talent retention.

    Advice to Management

    I know you guys are working on improving the culture, keep going.
