Associate Director Client Lead for Michelin (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 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.
Pay is pretty good, free snacks, office is cool
Management, lack of training, terrible work/life balance
Buyer/Planner (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 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.
magic kitchen (free snacks, coffee, fruit), happy hour every Thursday
Associate, Audio and Digital Investments (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 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.
