    I have been working at McCann Worldgroup full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    A brilliant and truly connected network full of the best people in the industry. Real heart and personality. They put beliefs and mantras into action - they really do 'hire great people and get out of the way'. They really do believe in the power of a 'Truth Well Told'. They really do believe in fundamentals not fads. I thought there was some hype coming in. Not really.

    Cons

    Like most creatively oriented environments, squeaky wheels tend to get the oil. It's a bold and generous culture, often blunt and forceful.

    Advice to Management

    The transformation, at such scale, is incredible in the timeframe. A 5 year turnaround for a massive agency network...now how to keep it up?

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are great and you will meet great people

    Cons

    Management not so much. There is no regard for anyone's personal life, or professional goals. Reach as high as you want, you'll most likely end up in the same place year after year regardless of being promised growth and recognition. It is also very difficult for management to admit that one person cannot take care of 3-4 different roles full time.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in a team in order to grow. Overselling employee's time hinders productivity as well as creativity.

    I worked at McCann Worldgroup full-time

    Pros

    Great people, made some really great friends that I will keep in touch with for the rest of my life. People are friendly and understanding and for the most part genuinely interested in helping and supporting each other.

    Cons

    Growth opportunities were lacking. A lot of false promises and warped timelines for growth. A lot of it is due to budgets and dealing with New York (head office), but frustrating for people that deserve recognition for the hard work and long hours they put in. Work/life balance was also a little off. Yes this is advertising and people know that long hours come with the job.. but it seemed to me that some people were working significantly longer hours based on their skills which isn't fair. Some senior management played favourites. Found some discrimination based on historical work with the agency. Just because someone hasn't shown this ability doesn't mean they're not capable and shouldn't be considered.

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

    Pros

    Relatively decent pay. Really great people. Great location and lots of events/activities to keep employee morale at a good level. Also a bonus that you can bring your dog with you to the office.

    Cons

    Too many people with very poor management skills are allowed to thrive here. Being talented isn't always the way to win, having the favor of someone high up in executive leadership is, even if employees are garbage at their job. They also don't have a formal bonus payout process, regardless of how well the agency does (some people get them on the sly here and there).

    Advice to Management

    An overhaul of leadership is needed. There are a lot of talented people that make the agency great. Corporate culture embraces diversity and encourages fun, but executive leadership for the agency is sucking the life out of great people. People at the supervisor and VP level who are mediocre at best are able to get promotions and make bad decisions because they're on someone's good side at the higher levels, which talented individuals are kicked to the wayside and presented to leadership as bad employees when they're not. The agency is good, but not great. However it could be with the right leadership. Executive leadership needs to be comfortable admitting they made a bad hire once they realize that people are quitting under certain people's leadership.
