    I worked at Publicis Groupe for less than a year

    Pros

    Training was excellent, introduction to the job. Lots of responsibility given to you early on. Work you are doing is really necessary to the business.

    Cons

    Long hours were the worst, almost no work/life balance available though that was probably due to the small nature of the particular team i worked with.
