Best compensation structures (salary/benefits) between WPP, IPG, Publicis, Omnicom shops? Thoughts?

WPP stands for why pay people; I found Omnicom and IPG to be the most generous. Publicis is meh but not as bad as WPP.

Hahahahaha. Pretty consistent with why I’ve experienced. Publicis is pretty bad in my experience except for benefits

My medical retirement and vacation benefits are worse at Omnicom than Publicis but pay is better

It depends which agency at/ group within Publicis you are a part of. PubComm (Pub NY HQ): great 401K package and match (ur $ grows!); great PTO, personal days, and holidays, closed for Christmas; being internally promoted takes years since Paris has to approve (given a choice of either title or money, many take title and leave to get their dues elsewhere and come back); decent culture; great space (now they're moving back to 375 tho?), and flexibility (can work remotely w/o drama or reprimand). I've had colleagues who transferred from PubNY (after being there for 10+yrs) to Saatchi, Leo, Rokkan for promotions and the grass was not green. They had to relinquish all the days they earned to merely 10-12 days PTO, flexibility, not great / toxic culture, weren't impressed with their digital tools and process, and not being closed around Christmas. So unless you are working with a great leader or role that can prepare you for where you want to be long-term or position you can remain under the radar ...choice wiseful

MDC has the best of the holding companies IMO. Left for an IPG agency and just switched back to MDC for the benefits and salary alone.

What are peoples thoughts on two different career paths within public accounting.

The reduced hour career path allows you to enjoy whatever you enjoy about public without the long hours but your career progression will be similar to industry and the other path is pretty much what it is now. Thoughts?

In these times, if your referral bonus is $1k or less for seasonal employees you are asking for: 1. Employees who put in work to refer people that end up negotiating a part time option don't work on referring anyone else. 2. If the potential new hire gets an offer, employees have 0 incentive to convince them to accept it. This can even lead to them giving negotiation tips which get the new hire a $5-10k higher offer. They may even recommend accepting a diff firm's offer straight up.

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off? I haven’t taken a “vacation day” since February, billed 185+ hour months consistently through the pandemic (exceeded hours for 2020 bonus eligibility), and am feeling pretty burnt out. It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.
