Went from a Publicis Groupe agency to an Omnicom agency and omg it's so much better. Far less bureaucracy. Nothing is antiquated here! I'd assumed they were all the same degree of stifling mess.

Maybe your agency is the exception!

I've worked in both. Publicis is in the Stone age compared to Omnicom's somewhat more advanced Dark age

Looking back at how Publicis Groupe handled raises and promotions while I was there is pretty wild now that I’m out. I am never going back.

Omnicom has its own flavor of donkey balls. But enjoy the change!

Publicis is the actual devil. Agree with the person above about raises and promotions. Soooo antiquated. Stunted my career— the worst holding agency to start out at!

Ask someone about the financial software, AX. You’ll find out what antiquated is really quick. Also, the unnecessary process and procedures, dreamed up by Execs who have nothing else to do but come up with more process and procedures is mind blowing.

Ladies & Gentlemen, with one month left in Q2, some will fall short of our numbers. Others will hit them. I can’t speak for all of us here, however, I can speak for myself. That being said, I will NOT be one that comes up short of my number. Now, this leads me to you all, to present a question. If you have to prospect, if you’re looking for new business, is it worth $1500 to put 95% of your prospecting process on autopilot? If so, let’s chat.
