    I have been working at Publicis full-time

    Pros

    decent pay, usually have another contract for you to work when one ends

    contracts that they get with pharmaceutical companies are usually drugs with limited market potential (contracts do not last long)

    Former Employee - Account Supervisor in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Publicis full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about time management, prioritizing asks and navigating a multi-layered corporate environment. It's a grind, but teaches effectively how to manage high-volume workloads

    Leadership is interested in providing exposure to industry learnings

    Cons

    There's a tension between the T-Mobile account and the "everything else" in the agency.

    Leadership strives to have a strong culture, but there's never the time it takes to participate and benefit.

    Advice to Management

    It's as important to protect the time needed to learn as it is to provide the curriculum of learning.

    I worked at Publicis full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Big agency resources; lots of smart, friendly people; solid benefit plan(s); somewhat decent client roster so there might be opportunities

    Cons

    All the expected down-sides of a big agency; management isn't overly connected with the people in the trenches; they sometimes seem more concerned with looking like a big, relevant agency than actually being one; they don't allocate their creative resources well to the point ti felt like they were playing favorites or just weren't aware of who people were or putting them in positions to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your people are human beings and not just line items on a spreadsheet. Acknowledge that raises, promotions and ability to grow/climb are limited. Be more aware of the people you have on your roster and try to maximize their potential to make the agency and the employee better.

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

    Pros

    Publicis Groupe has wonderful benefits (great healthcare, healthy salaries, a very generous vacation policy etc) and a very enjoyable work environment (at least for my part of the company -- I work for Publicis Media, formerly Vivaki). My coworkers are calm, kind, hardworking, intelligent people. This is a progressive company with a learning environment and room for employee growth. Work/life balance is excellent.

    Cons

    I've heard it can be difficult to transfer abroad in certain circumstances.
