    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.

    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.

    I worked at Nurun full-time

    Pros

    Excellent work/life balance, nice office environment, lots of employee perks - health spending accounts, bonus', social activities, parties, etc.

    Cons

    Clients are constantly in flux - neither here nor there unless you are on the ONE main account they manage. Upper management is questionable, they don't seem to want to take responsibility for their employees career development plans or actual real work. Some leaders don't even know what they are doing in some cases leaving a lot of the work/heavy lifting for other team members to figure out or complete.

    Advice to Management

    Have better career development plans, get to know your employees before you make rash decisions, understand the project before you dive in and say you can do something but then can't deliver.
