    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.

    Pros

    Collaborative environment, supportive, everyone celebrates success of others
    Focus on people and their development within the organisation
    Produce high quality work, work with great clients across a range of disease areas and types of work
    Always striving to do the best work

    Cons

    Fast paced which does not suit everyone
    Can be long hours and high pressures at peak times

    Advice to Management

    Transparency has increased over the years, this should be continued. Invest in people of all levels, especially a junior level.

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

    Pros

    The people at Publicis Health are a very diverse, bright and interesting mix, from a wide geographical area. There is something to learn from almost everyone you meet. It feels like there are lots of opportunities for you to move up or across or even to a different territory. Senior Management seem genuinely interested in the detail and make a point of knowing and speaking to all the team members.

    There is a big focus on training and personal development and some of the training sessions are hugely valuable.

    The London campus is nice with big windows in all offices and a garden area to enjoy when the weather is good. There are two onsite cafes and bars also.

    Publicis Life Brands Resolute is a great place to be, with a great mix of skills, both scientific and creative, creating a really unique service for the clients.

    Cons

    The cross-agency collaboration is still a little clunky and could be improved - I think a lot of work is going on to address that. Some of the offices could be better set up to drive and facilitate the creative process.

    Advice to Management

    Keep prioritising people development - it is a massive strength of this company - please don't overlook the training needs of the most junior members of the teams.

    Pros

    A great atmosphere, fabulous team spirit. I love being part of a success story. It's good to retain the small agency feel but have the benefits of being part of something much bigger
    I work for one agency (Tardis Medical Consultancy) but I am enjoying the opportunity to collaborate with other agencies.

    Cons

    There is a high expection of quality here so if you are a 'that will do' person it's not for you!

    Advice to Management

    Keep walking the talk! The 650 Management Training programme is a great investment in the leadership team.

    Pros

    Great work life balance compared to other New York agencies
    Senior leadership is open to hearing ideas

    Cons

    Not very innovative
    Very young agency. Not many people to learn from
    Lack of investment in employees

    Advice to Management

    Develop training programs that are geared towards helping employees succeed at all levels - not just middle management and senior leadership. Ensure that all teams are being innovative. Healthcare doesn't have to be boring, but the right people need to be in place to ensure that innovation is happening.

    Pros

    I can't think of one good thing to say about this company. Good commute. Offices are very appealing to Millennials.

    Cons

    Poor management. Abusive people. This is a sweatshop. Unprofessional. Get a lawyer and know your rights as a worker. Absolutely the worst company. Avoid at all costs.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the old miserable management people if you want to survive.
