    Pros

    Interesting company doing interesting work. They work hard at corporate culture, and have instituted an activity-based workplace program in which people sit wherever they need to sit to accomplish the day's work. Some people didn't like this-- I thought it was excellent, promoted cross-fertilization of ideas, etc. More than at other companies I have worked at, they put art and copy together at kickoff, and... expect the work to come out of that collaboration. This takes jobs into new creative directions with interesting results. They treat people like adults who have agency to make their own decisions. And they have fresh fruit on every floor.

    Cons

    Activity-based workplace works well for some, less so for others. It tends to skew to a younger demographic. There is a need to diversify their client base.

    Advice to Management

    Fortune favors the bold.

    I worked at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people at Saatchi are hard to come by. You become close with your team and they, as well as leadership, have your back. The culture suffered with the move from Park Avenue to 1675 Broadway, however HR is actively trying to rebuild. You will work with smart people who want to perform at the highest level and deliver top notch work who also genuinely care about you and your well being.

    Cons

    ABW (activity based working) seating, current office location (though they are moving again), low salaries

    Advice to Management

    The agency would benefit from the executive leadership team being more involved in the culture and engaging with employees of all levels. Leaders should be leading and that will trickle down to the junior most employees.

    I worked at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness full-time

    Pros

    Central location; a few smart folks

    Cons

    Where to start. HR is brutal and two-faced. They're not there for the employees to be sure. Leadership makes empty promises, avoids difficult conversations and takes no responsibility for anything. Anyone smart has left. What remains are a bunch of outdated, lazy and uninspired hacks. HR - try being more human.

    Advice to Management

    You need real leadership.

    I have been working at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * Culture - the nicest people I've ever worked with, no divas here (maybe one or two but that's it)! All hands on deck mentality, teams are very collaborative, no job too small or too big for anyone. * Work/Life balance - very respectable. For the industry, you can't really do better. Dedicated wellness room – houses in-house acupuncturist, reflexologist, and chiropractor. * Professional/personal development -... great training/workshop opportunities provided by the Publicis network (Mission 650 has been amazing)! Review cycles every 6 months, ample opportunity to receive recognition and promotions * Benefits - lots of great benefits and company perks, 401k starts on day one, plenty of days off.

    Cons

    * Experience varies pending on department/team. There are few teams here that are less desirable * Would like more flexibility to work remotely and flexible schedules but I think they're working on that

    Advice to Management

    * Continue to work on remote working and flexible scheduling options - you'll get the most out of your employees when they're happy and grateful

    I have been working at Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They always say if you are the smartest person in the room, find a different room! Well that is never the case here! In just a few months time of working here I have been a part of such amazing conversations and have learned so much from the Senior Leadership team on down. They are constantly trying to find ways to improve and grow, and are willing to let you do whatever is necessary to develop in your career. Every... day I come to work there is a noticeable buzz in the office, the pride that is being taken in the day to day work is unlike anything I have seen. No to mention working in the Health and Wellness space there is a sense of purpose in everything you do, you are truly changing people's lives and everyone here knows it! Oh and the views from the 23rd and 24th floor are awesome!

    Cons

    Wish the layout of the seating was a bit different, but we make it work!

    Advice to Management

    Take everything you have done on the inside and push it out to the outside world. Let everyone know WHY SSW is the place to work!
