    I have been working at Publicis Health as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At Publicis Resolute everyone really looks out for one another, all the teams that I have worked with have been thoughtful, flexible and efficient. Always seeking to improve the way that they do things and open to new ideas, which as a contractor makes you feel very valued! The office environment is motivated, friendly and quickpaced - exactly what you want from an agency

    Cons

    IT system can be a little temperamental.. As with all agencies I think there are some people that work a lot later than others, but they really do try and keep an eye on ensuring that their employees have a good work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, its an engaging place to work and the people there are reminded frequently how much they are valued

    Pros

    Great team, super friendly atmosphere, management seems to be very people-focused. Good opportunities for career progression and plenty of staff who have been around for 5+ years.
    Client work is delivered to a high standard and there's a lot of inter-department projects, where different teams get on very well - rare for a large network agency.

    Cons

    Some team members occasionally have to work longer hours but this appears to be temporary and only during the busiest times.

    I have been working at Publicis Health full-time

    Pros

    First and foremost, it's the culture. We have a great team that gels well together and is based upon mutual respect at all levels. Career development is also a real focus for Publicis Health - we have the best training programme I've every seen, and people are rewarded and recognised for their contributions. I have to give a shout out to the leadership too - as I genuinely believe they put people before profits - they know that if they focus on the former, the latter will follow.

    Being part of a network means that we have access to all sorts of experts too - from creatives, scientific strategists and PR gurus. All in all, it's a great place to work and our employee retention rates are testament to this.

    Cons

    Two words: District Line.

    Commuting issues aside, IT support is probably the other 'con' - the turn around times from the Service Desk can be slow and they often don't fix the problem! Our work mobile phones could also do with upgrading too!!

    Advice to Management

    Challenge convention and the standard ways of doing things, encourage ambition and continue to nurture talent.

    I have been working at Publicis Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Individual agencies lead to small-agency environments with the support and contacts of a much larger network
    - Very high standards are encouraged and maintained
    - Strong focus on people development and line management with very good training provision
    - The values and intentions of the people in charge are generally good

    Cons

    - Lots of bureaucracy and decisions are often implemented slowly, if at all
    - Risk-averse approach can lead to a feeling of slight stagnation

    Advice to Management

    Managers of the individual business units may benefit from a slightly more collaborative/inclusive approach
    Don't be afraid to take risks

    I worked at Publicis Health (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers. Beat Exec CD in industry.

    Cons

    No support from corporate leadership Need to figure out if they run branded house or house of brands. It's confusing to employees and clients. Complimentary business units are not integrated as sold in to clients.

    Advice to Management

    Executive team mandates don't reflect today's expectations from clients and decisions are often made in a vacuum. Agency needs to focus on what it does best and not suggest there's in house expertise to address all needs.
