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

Pros

- Real Science has high standards for content and review processes that help writers grow in skill – I feel that my writing skills have jumped up a few notches since starting here. I would definitely recommend it for writers who want grow in their craft. You get considered and constructive feedback that helps you develop as a writer as well as improving the quality of the deliverable, and there is always time made to discuss your work
- Exceptionally supportive environment – there is a lot of interaction with your line managers on a regular basis, but in a two-way, conversational style, so that you always feel heard, and confident that everything is being done to meet your needs
- It's a fun place to work, even when it's busy, with a great team spirit
- There is great communication from management (at all levels) to the individual team members
- Project allocations tend to be varied so that writers get exposure to different therapy areas, as well as styles of writing
- Lots of cakes
- Flexible working and duvet days (don't forget to use them!)
- Senior management is always very appreciative of your hard work

Cons

- Can be a lot to juggle as writers will work on a couple of accounts, each with different activities and deliverables (but the teams work together to be as flexible as possible). I would advise new starters to be comfortable and confident in having conversations with their teams about their workloads and deadlines, as everyone in the team is receptive to those type of conversations

Advice to Management

Continue to grow the team with great talent, filling gaps with external talent where necessary

    Pros

    • Focus on people – many agencies/networks claim to be people focused and invested in the development of its employees, but I’ve found that few actually live it! Real Science comprises some of the most talented people in the business; this and the incredibly supportive yet challenging work environment really enables you to grow professionally and do the best work of your career
    • Real Science a really fun place to work and there is a great sense of team spirit; it definitely has a small-agency feel but with the opportunities that a larger network can provide e.g. career flexibility within the group, exposure to amazing creative work done by the advertising teams which provide daily inspiration! Real Science also has a really open culture – it feels like we all play a role in shaping the agency

    Cons

    • As with any agency, it is deadline-driven and there are busy periods, but this is always acknowledged and appreciated by the senior leadership team
    • There could be greater flexibility bringing in additional resource to support during busy periods

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

    Pros

    It’s a fast-paced environment, with amazing employees and opportunities to learn something new everyday. A rewarding job, where a love of helping people and working in science can be combined with project management skills.

    Cons

    A busy environment which can sometimes become stressful if you don’t quickly learn how to prioritise tasks and ask for support from your team.

    Advice to Management

    It would be amazing to have a clearer distinction between the specific tasks to be undertaken in each role - to ensure that everyone knows what is expected of them, and how to progress to higher levels more quickly. This would also be particularly helpful for new starters to learn what their responsibilities are and to learn what they can delegate upwards.
