I recently had an interview with a Publicis agency and didn’t feel as if I was able to fully grasp the work/life culture or company culture as a whole. Anyone work there willing to give their thoughts on the overarching company?

My experience at various Publicis agencies is that you’re just a number to them.

That’s kinda the vibe I got during the interview. I interviewed with a smaller agency last week that during the interview made sure to really understand what I was looking for in a company, where Performics only cared about my experience, not my personality etc.

Publicis is all about profits over people. And is also one of the most political agencies I’ve ever worked at.

100% agree. Executive hunger games.

I’ve been at a number of Publicis agencies, and with the exception of one, they’re all pretty crappy. Also very low salaries compared to market value (maybe that’s changed right now). Takes forever to try to get raises or promotions because your agency can’t make those decisions — the bosses in Paris do. Lots of SOWs that are far too low on budget just so the agency could win the business, leaving you with not enough staff for support. The list goes on.

which agency?

DM me!

Well… what do you really wanna know ? And where is it. There are A LOT of differencies between the agencies of the group.

Performics!
