That’s not a blanket truth across all Publicis agencies. At LB we also have: the week between Xmas and NYE, as well as Summer Days.

Unlimited vacation and sick days, 100% covered health insurance, 401k, stocks, free breakfast/lunch/dinner, covered commute/parking and $2000 in free products each year. In-house.

I’m pretty sure Publicis groups is only three weeks vacation on the third calendar year you’ve been there - otherwise it’s 2.

Vacation days promised is a useless number. Can you actually take the days and stay in good standing with client and employer is the real factor

I️ used to have unlimited vacation days at my old job - seems great but we were too busy to take them and then you don’t get paid out anything. Publicis NY has really good time off - varies by level/time there but min is 12 PTO, 3 floating, 8 sick, 18.5 office closures (including Xmas break) and usually a 4 day summer Friday. All of Publicis Groupe has a 401k that vests 25% per year, applicable to any Groupe agency. They do some matching up to 5% Insurance plans are great too.

@LB1 that’s what I mean... thx for showing us what you get!

Damn @AD1 you have a good setup

Ya what the heck that's amazing @AD1

“Unlimited vacation” is the biggest con this side of the HR fence. If another person pipes up about it as if it’s a perk I’ll scream. It’s just a clever psychological trick that basically amounts to even less PTO days taken than the standard entitlement because you have to beg for them. And you end up begging even for the standard entitlement of 2 weeks. It basically means the company saves money. If you leave they owe you nada

how are each of these on working from home? I’m surprised it’s not more common
