    I have been working at M&C Saatchi Performance full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A lovely, friendly office with great people, relaxed but hardworking. Great for flexible working and amazing staff events, the summer party was amazing fun. They also promote from within so lots of opportunities for career development.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, not enough time!

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at M&C Saatchi Performance

    Pros

    Part of M&C Saatchi Group Social Complimentary breakfast Do charity work Located in Soho, London You can get lucky and be placed on a good team A good place to get introduced to mobile media and soak up the knowledge Can be placed on interesting and influential clients, but it can also be the other way

    Cons

    No benefits Not enough training for such a huge company Job can get very repetitive and not so thrilling Many things come down to networking and subjective sympathy It is a social company, but a lot revolves around alcohol

    Advice to Management

    Continue taking on young graduates or apprentices Introduce better benefits

      I have been working at M&C Saatchi Performance full-time

      Pros

      Personally I find M&C Saatchi Mobile a fun and rewarding company to work for. There is very little red tape, if you want to do something different, or new you are wholly encouraged to get stuck in an make your job role your own. The industry is growing fast and so is the company, this makes the overall feel very positive and a very exciting dynamic environment to work in. Good management always happy to listen...

      Pros

      Great work atmosphere. You'll get to work with amazing talent from creative to data analytics. The Social/Biddable team is the best team to start your career off it as it'll give you a clear understanding of how and where advertising dollars are spent in mobile. If you're looking for a career in client servicing then there are 4 different media teams who are all responsible for specific client(s) accounts. The clients...

      Cons

      Lack of breakfast facilities is a major con. Most companies have provisions for breakfast wherein employees can have cereals, bread, milk, spreads, etc. Here all this is available but it comes with a cost i.e. there's a cafe within the agency which charges for all these items. A lot of media planner/buyers are not knowledgeable about the work they do or take any keen interest to improve their overall knowledge and...

      Advice to Management

      In order to keep your best employees and to reduce high staff turnover, please listen to the requests of your staff. Even if that means bumping up their pay by a few £££. That will do miracles to employee morale and would make them less likely to leave. You need to keep hold of your best staff.

      Pros

      Really great team and a fun culture, everyone is very friendly and open. Excellent clients where we get to try new things and do mobile firsts and good budgets.

      Cons

      Can sometimes put in some long hours, but the team is always supportive and it's only when there is a big project on strategy to deliver.

      Advice to Management

      It would be great to get more involved in future planning for the business and sharing ideas.

      Pros

      Just a decent name on your CV.

      Cons

      Very low pay, 0 benefits (still and sparkling water?) and very bad senior management. Very very few people are involved in events and fairs, so don't expect to travel or expand your network. People keep on leaving the agency: during the last year at least 20 people (out of 50) left, as they were hyper-frustrated.
