I think publicis is pretty great. Unlimited PTO can be hit or miss depending on the agency but mine is really great

Thirding Publicis

McCann Health has good insurance options and a great 401k. Also unlimited PTO, lots of company holidays (every three-day weekend usually becomes a four-day weekend) and they don’t give you crap for taking time off.

NOT here… the most expensive health insurance I’ve ever seen in my whole entire life. It’s like I’m paying for a family of 3 when it’s only me.

In addition to 401k match, unlimited PTO, etc FCB has disability/injury/med leave coverage of 100% pay for 6 weeks, more depending on time there. I’ve found this to be pretty rare in agency benefits.

Klick covers all of your individual health insurance premiums. That's a nice perk, though the insurance plan itself is the same "meh" UHC plan that some of the big networks offer. Vacation days are fine - at least it's not BS unlimited PTO.

Depends on your level. I get 20 vacation days and 6 sick days which is…. Ok. Not bad, not great. I had more at IPG but then they switched to unlimited. At least at Klick you can use them - with unlimited it’s hard to.

Insurance under IPG/FCB is super high for just one person. Other than that, the 401k is pretty good and we get a decent amount of holidays off.

Havas is pretty great all around (even reimburse for peloton membership), tons of vacation, great health insurance and year end closing.

like

Eversana Engage is pretty good, comparable premium to WPP/IPG but better coverage. We also have unlimited PTO that you can actually use, ie. no one gives you shit for taking 1-2 week vacations or time off as needed to run errands and be a human.

Fingerpaint covers 100% of costs for 2 very good plans and then you can pay a bit OOP for even better coverage

Asking for some advice on an offer received… my current company base gives me 112k, 9 holidays, 20 pto days, 6% match on 401k and employee share purchase plan, individual bonus up to 8.5%. The new offer received is as follows: 110k base, 11 holidays, unlimited pto days, 25k in RSUs vested 100% after 4 years, no 401k match, annual performance bonus up to 7.5% with possibility to exceed it, basic medical, dental, vision plan covered by company. Thoughts on if the external offer sounds competitive?

Is this reasonable or am I missing something? I started maxing my 401k from year 1 and I hope to have $5 million or more by the time I retire around 60. Wouldn’t it make sense to put all of my yearly $19,500 401k contribution to ROTH 401k instead of traditional 401k? My reasoning is that I would pay 35% tax now and my remaining 65% would grow tax-free in ROTH 401k…. versus traditional 401k where I deposit 100% but every distribution will be taxed 35% assuming I make a lot in retirement.
