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

    Pros

    Allegedly there is unlimited time off - good luck using it

    Cons

    See headline - management is rigid, doesn't listen, boxed in and excuse oriented when the results aren't there. HR will blindly endorse whatever management does, because - hey, who cares about employment laws!

    Pros

    -Good salary -Happy hour/creative dpmt has a lot of nice people -Generous PTO -Tom and Sean are great and really care about their creatives -WFH flexibility (depending on what team you're on)

    -Account gives creative feedback and is sometimes valued more than creative. -Sometimes we just give up and make mediocre work to call it a day. -If you're stuck on a bad account, it can be awful. -Lots of layers/red tape -Almost impossible to sell good ideas (have to be in the right place at the right time, or on the right client at the right time) -A bit sexist (women asked to work on specific brands and don't get the same opportunities as male counterparts)

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

    Pros

    Happy Hours, Generous PTO, Spacious Bathrooms to Cry in, if applicable

    Cons

    Highly infrequent promotion cycles and late hours even for what you might expect for industry standard. Upper management is only a lap dog to their client and any sign to change/improve the internal culture and management will be slighted by corporate politics and HR team of puppets. Working for a small account here your experience may be mediocre at best, any large client you will likely put in your two weeks within 6 months. Good Luck.
