    I have been working at Publicis Health full-time

    Pros

    - Working with smart people who care about what they do and each other
    - Autonomy in the work I do
    - Support and feedback to keep getting better
    - Nice work environment. I think we're well looked after with healthcare, massages, fruit delivery etc. Honestly, there's always so much food in the office!

    Cons

    - It is a big network, so decisions can take ages to get everyone bought in. This can stifle new ideas
    - It's a dynamic industry which is fun in some ways, but leads to knee jerk reactions in others

    Advice to Management

    Create a strategy which is agile enough to change, but so that we all know the direction we need to move in.
    Give people more freedom to make mistakes, act autonomously and you'll get greater innovation and creativity

    Pros

    PH places a huge amount of emphasis on training and career/personal development for employees of all levels meaning that you feel valued and supported.
    The large, global network provides the opportunity to collaborate with different agencies and interact with employees from other sites.
    Everyone is extremely friendly and welcoming when you start with PH and the facilities are fantastic.

    Cons

    Sometimes centralised support services mean that certain processes can take a little longer. However, this is not a big concern as if something is urgent then it is dealt with promptly.

    Pros

    Working for Real Science within the Publicis Health group has been a wonderful experience over the past two years. The company and the wider group are highly invested in their employees, including dedicating time and energy to training and development, highlighted by the fact that I have two line-managers and a formal review process with 360 feedback.

    The work has been very interesting and diverse and each level is given the opportunity to focus on the projects and aspects that they enjoy. I have worked across several therapy areas and clients, and have had autonomy within my role - allowing me to develop client relationships and increase my skill level.

    Beyond the work and career development RS is just a fun place to work. Everyone works very hard but also know how to have fun. We have 'beer-o-clocks' on Fridays with the other Publicis health agencies, allowing us to meet our colleagues from across agencies and encouraging strong relationships. From Christmas parties, summer parties and company socials RS and Publicis are happy to reward our hard work by emphasising the social 'family-feel' of the agency

    Cons

    As a busy, global agency there are times when the workload can be heavy. During busy times there can be late nights and high pressure. The cons of RS and Publicis Health for me are the same as any agency.

    Advice to Management

    Have more open forums for discussions through the different agencies within the group to encourage more collaborative working

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

    Pros

    -Really lovely people, very little ego - culture varies across agencies but most people I've worked wtih have been very friendly and hardworking and like to have fun
    -For me there is a lot of opportunity for career progression and a lot of training and career development support
    -The network of agencies genuinely feels collaborative and they work together a lot, resource is shared and it feels like one big group (previous places I've worked with similar structure have been more competitive)
    -It's a great culture for working parents, which I've found quite rare in this industry. Senior leadership is very understanding about flexible working/working hours and occasionally working from home to balance work/family which I value tremendously

    Cons

    -There is a lot of ambition and creativity but sometimes the agencies get let down on the delivery side; more could be done to give develop process and give it more strucutre
    -Location of main office in Kensington Village as been a sore point for some - not as much vibe as somewhere more central (though I personally don't mind too much)
    -While it's nice to feel like one big group, sometimes it can feel a little corporate rather than a smaller agency feeling

    Advice to Management

    Overall I think the management is great but I'd always recommend focusing on the people and investing in them as much as possible!

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

    Pros

    In general nice people working there (out of the Senior Management Team...). Some late nights and weekends but below industry average I'd say...

    Cons

    Extremely poor senior management, oligarchy system out of which you literally have no career progression, hidden agendas, poor communication within the company...
    They lie to you in your face about anything, and at the end nothing materialises the way they say... or any other way for that matter...

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees and their careers, and be honest with them. An honest and flatter approach would make wonders around there.
