Collection Specialist (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 18, 2017
Havas is a fun place to work at. Havas employees work hard but the environment at Havas makes you feel at ease. Havas appreciates it, employees, hard work they provide continental breakfast ever Monday's, all day snack, and Bar 8 on Thursday
Social Media Specialist (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – September 8, 2016
I started working here as a quick hire due to my Manager moving to a different office within my first two weeks of starting. From that point, i was trained on my position by those in the position below me. My job roll was not defined until 2 months into my employment. Spent aprox. 50 hours a week in office. Was let go at my 90 day review as they did not feel i fit the position. The culture of the office was awful. Come in, work, leave was the mentality of the team. Extroverts do not apply.

Havas Media is not a company for minorities if you have an opportunity to work at this organization I highly recommend that you look elsewhere. The diversity is non-existent and management likes to gloss things over to make it look as if they are really into diversity which is the farthest thing from the truth.
Look at the differences in salaries for minorities, no promotions, no advancement and no minorities are in charge of any departments within the organization.
I ask that you run not walk away from this organization.
Magic Kitchen and colleagues below management level
Racism, discrimination and no promotions for minorities.
Beautiful Office in Tribeca, but workload & nimble teams make for poor work/life balance
Account Director (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 5, 2015
Best part of my day is collaborating with team members on outstanding projects. However upper management does absolutely nothing to foster team spirit, nor do they get involved until team members quit and clients express concern.I've learned to be a great team leader, roll up my sleeves and get in the weeds otherwise direct reports are overwhelmed with workload.
Easy commute, great office, free snacks in "magic kitchen"
Promotions are rarely based on merit, think HS popularity contest
Great place to work, very happy people and lots of fun and hard work
Associate Client Accounting Payable (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 13, 2015
Hectic, meetings with vendors, teams and department. How to be calm and polite and still get the job done in a stressful environment, Approachable helpful. Loved my co-workers live like family and we were great team players. Meeting monthly deadlines each month. knowing that our clients and customers are satisfied and comfortable with the service we offered them.
Strong employee culture, hard-workers and good management
Digital Media Planner (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – November 4, 2014
I worked at Havas for 2 years, and enjoyed every moment of it. You must be prepared for hard work and long hours, but the employee culture is great in hat even a bad day always seems to end up pretty good. Management wants the best for you, and although things don't always happen as fast as you might want, their intentions are good and ultimately they'll deliver.
Within my group - lowest turn over, great learning environment, management that listens and cares for employees
Analytics and Research (Current Employee) – New York – September 23, 2014
No cut throat mentality. Team members generally care for one another and help each other out. Management listens to issues and acts. Management ensures the well being of the team. The group has inspirational leaders who have a vision of where the department should be headed. Investment in group members is a focus.
CON: Media planning teams sometimes do not account for analytics during planning or scoping stages leading to lack of resources and zero or low quality measurement strategy
The team's leadership core, Great place to learn and grow professionally, Smart friendly and approchable team members, Hands on training, Low turn over (due to leardership and team camaraderie)
