FCB Global is no longer in Seattle
Account Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Seattle, WAMay 16, 2018
The company closed it's office in Seattle, so there is nothing to mention here that would be helpful for the job-finder; except that job security is an issue in the marketing/advertising world.

Great people- long hours
Vice President, Management Director (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMarch 21, 2018
Great smart people- long hours- not a lot of recognition for accomplishments - definite favorites. Good work environment, did some great things, learned a lot, but easy burn out. Salary discrepancy between male/female at same levels with same responsibilities.

Great starter agency
Assistant Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILFebruary 21, 2018
A great advertising agency but in a slump. Work loads can be either extreme or very slow paced. Multiple lay-offs in the last couple of months due to loss of accounts to smaller agencies. Office politics stifles growth for employees because favoritism is opted for over strongest working.
Pros
Free workshops, lunch and learn events, exposure to name brands, coffee shop
Cons
Below par salary, office politics that mimics high school, poor management

Fake jobs
CEO (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 19, 2018
They post the same job over and over again. When you go to interview they will waste your time for nothing and ask you questions as if you were their consultant. Do not provie any of you thought to them. They will use it free instead of hiring you. Avoid!!
Pros
nothing
Cons
Indecesive

Mixed Emotions
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 10, 2017
Most often times I found myself happy to go to work, tons of amazing personalities from all walks of life. I was in a new position eager to master it and allow myself to get to know all of the many faces I'd have to work with at some point or another. My issue was with how management allowed outsourcers to be treated by FCB employees, spoken down to, under paid, most over worked and not allowed to complain about being treated inappropriately. Most often outsourcers would be undermined by their own management team and instead of issues being resolved they'd replace you. The constant turnover in the facilities department, mailroom and with receptionists is pretty disturbing. I personally believe the culture could use a overhaul because their currently is no accountability for bad management.
Pros
Great location if you like busy!!
Cons
Unaware and failing

Still not sure who they are
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Parsippany, NJJune 15, 2017
Switched out management, but not very impressed. New team is only concerned with winning self-serving awards and firing people who are not from NY. Sad.
Pros
not in NY
Cons
Too many to list

Great Opportunity
Freelance Copywriter (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILNovember 14, 2016
Typical day ran smoothly. I learned to listen to my gut. Management was great. My co-workers were awesome. The hardest part of my job was learning not to second guess myself. The most enjoyable part of the job was the client.
Pros
Extremely fascinating work
Cons
No full time positions

Bigger emphasis on winning awards than pleasing clients
Analyst (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 6, 2016
Pay is okay for the industry. Some days are long but that's typical of an agency. Only one review period per year so it's difficult to advance without having another job offer. Tons of PTO and a large education stipend after you've worked for a year.
Pros
Training stipend, Pto

Great place to learn
Account Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Lima, LIMSeptember 11, 2015
FBC is a great place to learn how to work global. Managing international brands and having contact with different network executives makes a big difference for the professional growth of every employee.
