This is great. Now, we know Publicis works for Celgene and they hate them as well. Well done @P1 what a professional behaviour

They’re a freaking nightmare on most engagements

Two things I’ll complain about most:

1. they’ve got a million contractors working for them and it’s incredibly confusing how they’re structured sometimes

2. They have what seems like an army of project managers that are so annoying. They want updated timelines weekly, they want responsibility charts, they want to check in three or four times a week. What am I going to report in status this morning that I didn’t cover on status yesterday afternoon? Why do you need to know what exactly senior analyst A is going to do versus senior analyst B.

Then you get an email from the client’s boss asking why it’s been radio silence.

Publicis is everywhere. It’s like a mega agency. Didn’t know they do consulting

Girlfriend works woth them. They seem to be the worst company in the world. Act like their shit doesn’t smell. Work crazy hours

A frustrating client since they never know shit and are entirely incompetent. But hey that probably means it can't be that hard of a job. Hey do have a lot of money and consistently shell it out to us year round.
