Would you take a role at an agency with a good rep and interesting work for $140K? Or a role at Havas (😖) for $170K+? I’m leaning towards the former, but that Havas $$$ would be a life changer.
On the heels of Havas, if you were starting a new agency what are three ways you would ensure a positive culture?
Just walked by Havas slowly dismantling their lobby display. Anyone want to take bets on the driving factor? Backlash? Client meeting? Lawsuit for a toxic work environment ?
Havas SF official business hours: now open till 8 PM every Wednesday for the rest of the year. Staff “expected to work until at least 8.”
Pertaining to the Havas “Employee of the Month” installation: One year after being laid off, I would put a bullet through my brain before going back to work at that shallow, toxic work environment.
I'm extremely happy working at Havas, so it pains to me say what the leadership has done is both embarrassing and demoralizing. (cont.)…
Are things less dysfunctional at Havas now that JP’s gone, or was he a symptom, not the cause? How’s the strategy dept there?
Havas Health: the sinking ship everyone warned you about where mgmt chills and the show is run by 20 something AES
What’s the vibe over at Havas these days? (Autocorrect wants to change “Havas” to “Havana.” Now I want to know what the vibe is over there, too, but that’s not really relevant here.)
What’s everyone’s thoughts on Havas parting ways with Jason Peterson? Was it warranted? Sure the installation stunt in CHI was childish, but dude was the global CCO .. their clients have to be on edge
Apparently most Havas’ HR staff quit, in NY and Chicago. The saga continues 👀😂. Can anyone from Havas provide updates!!!
What have you heard about Havas, GSW, and M-Dash? Looking at some creative opportunities at these agencies (specially copy).
Havas Health and You has a job posting on linked in for a DTC copywriter with no more chance Han five years experience. they’re not even trying to hide their ageism
Havas going from “it’s okay to not be okay” to publicly shaming their employees who voiced themselves on fishbowl for issues within the company. Thoughts?
