Publicis 🐠- when is your performance review? My wife works there, but she has no idea when this is or if they’re giving a raise this year. Any input would be helpful. I know, she should be more proactive about these things.

Seeing as how publicis runs all of their agencies to the ground, I encourage your wife to take the time and start looking elsewhere. Sincerely, former person from agency that they acquired.

There is rarely bonuses at Publicis. Ever. It’s all talk for the most part. I’ve done 4 tours of duty around there in high levels. Even if it is stated in signing papers.

@SVP1 PS has bonuses every year built-in. Again depends on agency as each gets control over their own comp structures.

I’ve worked for Spark for over 2 years now. Our reviews are usually in April. I didn’t know to ask for a raise, based on my performance last year. IK, young and naive. This year, I knew to ask, but obviously couldn’t get traction, due to the pandemic. I wanted it in writing, but didn’t really happen, despite my emphasis. Grateful for the job security, but still frustrated. They froze raises last year. A lot of my friends ended up with more work for the same amount of money and left. The teams were stretched thinner and the burnout cycle continued. I’ve earned a promotion and a raise or two, but I’m stuck wondering if it’ll ever materialize, even if we make it to the other side of the pandemic. I’m not getting any younger....

Thanks for the input. Can’t believe that’s how it works at these agencies.

Depends on the agency. PS would be doing one in September but will be skipped this year.

She came in through the Epsilon acquisition. If they skip it this year, does that mean there won’t be a bonus or salary increase?

Then that’s going to be an Epsilon-specific question and depends on how well they are weathering this. Paris doesn’t release agency-specific numbers because of shareholder reporting requirements.

Seems like it’s not a straight forward thing and each agency functions a little differently. Do all agencies have the performance evaluation around the same time?

Thanks I’ll let her know.

Internally transferred into FDD as an audit senior 3. My coach and partner have indicated that I’m still eligible for promotion to manager based on years of experience. I’m trying to gauge the actual likelihood of this happening. Obviously firms bring in audit managers at the manager level with no FDD experience but would love to know if it’s possible/likely to be promoted to manager with less than a year of experience. I’d advise anyone in audit to transfer sooner rather than later!

A senior manager sent out an email to all of PwC about not being promoted. Blamed being black and not being born in the USA for it. However promotion is never guaranteed and becomes increasingly difficult the higher you go. Yet everyone wants to talk about race and inequality because this person was black. Seriously tired of the gymnastics people do to somehow relate it to color, instead of other factors.
