Saatchi & Saatchi Wellness, what’s the good, bad, ugly?

(3-4 years ago) After getting frustrated in the consumer world, I thought I’d dip my toes in the HCP world at Saatchi Wellness. They lured me in by showing me work they did for Frontline pet products, and some homeless shelter pro bono. So I’m like “cool...this isn’t pharma.” About 2 months into it, I’m writing brochures for some acid reflux med. Oh, and running it through proofing/editorial, which is soul crushing. Cherry on top - my boss is like “Hey you don’t seem as motivated as you did at first.” On the positive, I gave a pretty epic retort along the lines of “Look at my resume, my portfolio, and look at the work you have me doing. Were you expecting enthusiasm when you promised me good clients and then gave me this?” Oddly enough, I kept the job until I quit about 6 months in.

I dig it 😇 Very few egos, blockbuster brands and from a greater Publicis Health perspective, it's great to be able to sit in the same office as Kathy

I freelanced there for a couple months and each week I was there, at least 2-3 people quit. They have listings all the time because ppl are constantly leaving.

Nothing particularly bad or ugly, depends on account. Lot of new HCP work.

The People leaving comment isn’t a fair one, they do that everywhere. The Kathy comment, ehh. Either way It’s a great place to work. Coffee bar, super easy work hours, good location (for now)
