    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Havas Media full-time

    Pros

    I learned an incredible amount, as they continue to provide more and more opportunities to develop skills and advance. Great culture, with very smart people.

    Cons

    Compensation was lacking and the hours can be very rough. Not enough career advancement opportunities. No perks. Clients are very very very demanding.

    Advice to Management

    Performance assessment needs to be improved with focus on developing young talent and helping through skill development and career development.

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues and a good team spirit.

    Cons

    The Senior management team doesn’t value the people who work really hard and go above and beyond. Very unorganized company, with lack of transparency to its clients. Workload is hectic and the teams are under-resourced.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees.
