    I have been working at Publicis full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great clients and opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Here's my story. I was placed in a very tough and draining client environment that presented challenges to not only my career, but my personal life. I took those challenges on and went above and beyond in my delivery for not only the client, but the company. What was my reward? For my first promotion round I was told that my work was excellent, but because I hadn't been there a year, I was passed up. I was assured that if I kept it up, I was a shoe-in for the next promotion round. What happened at the next promotion round? I was told that my work was great and that I deserved a promotion, but because of the "numbers" I wasn't promoted. But, they'll definitely put me up for consideration at the next promotion round. I'm beginning to think that "timing" and "numbers" are code words for the color of my skin. Beware that upper management does not care about rewarding employees for the quality of their work, or perhaps just certain employees. The worst feeling is giving 100%, delivering on your work and not being given what you are due.

    Advice to Management

    Use more than just "seniority" or "numbers" as your thinly veiled excuses for holding employees back.
