Havas Chicago
Associate Director Client Lead for Michelin (Current Employee) –  Chicago, ILJuly 27, 2018
Havas Chicago could really be a great place but it is run by people who's egos are too big. Everyone below VP level spend countless hours working on items for their bosses to completely rip it apart. Most of managment is very mean and their subordinates are too scared to speak up. HR does nothing to help and it is a toxic cycle of co-depenency. It is a good place to cut your teeth but not stay.
Pros
Pay is pretty good, free snacks, office is cool
Cons
Management, lack of training, terrible work/life balance

It's a pressured environment
Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) –  New York, NYApril 18, 2018
A typical day at work consists of either being tied to your desk working on a deck or working in a buying program or you spend it in back-to-back meetings. The seating arrangement usually has the higher-ups away from mid-level/assistants. It's open seating, with no offices.

Management varies with each team. Everything is quick turnaround so be ready to be on your feet. Sometimes management is hard to reach.
Pros
magic kitchen (free snacks, coffee, fruit), happy hour every Thursday
Cons
no set hours, hard to balance work-life

Good environment but not the best place to grow
Associate, Audio and Digital Investments (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 14, 2018
Havas offers a very low salary for all positions. Although working in an advertising agency brings a lot of perks, the salary is so low it is hard to live in a city such as New York. Also, the opportunity to progress on your team takes a long time. Usually it will come faster if you have a counter offer instead of having the space to grow.
Pros
Advertising Perks
Cons
Low Salary and low job advancements

The job is not hard at all. The mamnagent st Havas is horrible. A lot of micromanagement and management doesn’t know the work so it makes it harder for the employee.

Lots of focus on company culture but not enough focus on staffing. Lower level employees appeared to be over worked and under compensated for the hours put in.

Don't Do It!

Management is in shambles. Employees don't like working here because there is no transparency and no career advancement. Pay is really low, yet expectations are very high.

Fun place to work for.
Account Payable Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILSeptember 27, 2017
Havas Media is a millenial place which it was really fun. They let you take your pet to your work.

They always have coffee, and many snack to take to your desk. The culture is very relax as long as you comply with your tasks.

Once a month they provide breakfast, and management really cares about your tasks and be able to finish them.

Culture is very open, salary is OK and competitive, and people is a lot fun. Work can be overloaded and have to be on time.
Pros
Free Lunches, take your pet with you

They don't pay well for being a global company. The working environment wasn't what I was looking for, it was kind of quite, low paced and boring. I did enjoy the view from the building.
