    I have been working at Nurun full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No Pros that I can think of.

    Cons

    This company has unfortunately turned over entirely and is being run by severely incompetent leaders. Nurun used to be a competent digital arm of the Publicis groupe, but has since had all passionate employees quit. They pinch pennies on the things and people that matter.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, not alcohol. Practice transparency and stop operating in a black box. Your actions speak far louder than words. Stop trying to sell ideologies to your employees, it's really petty. Also, be transparent with your clients!

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

    Pros

    Connected to the Publics Groupe global network.
    The CEO is a genuine person and good to work for.

    Cons

    Don't reward employees for working overtime and driving results.
    Don't care about employee morale, only profit margins.
    Managers under the CEO aren't equipped to manage people, they simply care about their own profit numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to employees' contributions at all levels. Upper managements only cares about being liked among senior employees, and deceives junior employees to think they are being compensated fairly.

    I worked at Nurun as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledgable employees that provided great advice. The office is very relaxed and fun, everyone is not the most sociable but open up during off site events. Experienced leadership who get involved with the team which leads to opportunities to work on interesting accounts.

    Cons

    Typical agency where employees are changing constantly, but everyone seems to generally get along. Wish there was more structure to the intern program/position since I was there to get a better idea of where I would fit in an agency.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, but don't get complacent with current practices to build team morale. Get more creative with campaign ideas to help clients stand out rather than merely getting on the same page.

    I worked at Nurun full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    People are friendly and welcoming. Good work-life balance and good workplace.

    Cons

    Company has changed a lot after it was acquired by the French group Publicis and it's been restructured since then. Salaries were frozen and several directors and engineers left the company due to the new rules imposed by Publicis. Moreover, Nurun has only one big customer in Quebec: the provincial Quebec government. It guarantees a big chunk of its revenue but it suffers once a new government is in charge or decides to audit projects in order to reduce costs.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get together with people at the ground level, specially those who are allocated at customers.
