    J'ai travaillé chez J. Walter Thompson Worldwide en contrat permanent

    Avantages

    Good health and benefits package. Opportunity to work with big clients. Nice chairs.

    Inconvénients

    Despite being an ad agency, this company rarely pushes any creative envelopes. Most of the clients are big businesses that they over charge to do really generic "safe" ads for. There are way too many account managers and project managers who's jobs overlap and waste everyone's time. Below industry salary. Layoffs happen quite regularly, which is really bad for morale, along many other things. No opportunity for career growth.

    Conseils à la direction

    Even if it's normal in the industry, mass layoffs are really bad and are a reflection of poor management.

    Désapprouve le PDG

    J'ai travaillé chez J. Walter Thompson Worldwide en contrat permanent

    Avantages

    The best thing about the Toronto office are the hard working staff that make the place run everyday. Creatives, accounts, production and administrative teams do their best given the lack of leadership. They should be given the credit for keeping the lights on.

    Inconvénients

    The management team at JWT Toronto should write a book about what not to do when running an agency, it'll help generate some much needed revenue given the loss of business they've had over the last couple years. The place is a textbook case of poor management and how fragile agency culture is to maintain.

    Agency leadership could care less about the happiness and development of their employees. Employees rarely catch a glimpse of their supposed agency leaders, as they are either hiding in their offices and barely interacting with staff or they are out of the office, charging for expensive lunches or hotel accommodations.

    Account management leads don't do enough to promote great creative. The challenge most of the time is to try to get concepts through account leads who are so stuck on an idea of how a client operates, they aren't willing to take any chances. Then act shocked when clients go to another agency looking for fresh creative. Creative teams get the brunt of the blame while account leadership get shifted to other accounts for them to make the same mistakes and run into the ground. Air Canada was a prime examples of this.

    The agency is so desperate for new business they are willing to chase anything with a pulse, while draining resources and staff for long winded pitches that are without focus or result. This impacts actual clients, who have their work delayed as agency staff are diverted for these whimsical pitches.

    Agency culture has evaporated. Leadership invests no time or effort in getting to know their staff or take them out to celebrate their hard work. The Friday afternoon drinks sees a handful of people show up for the tightly controlled event and is about as fun as a funeral. The only fun social culture the place has is when people organize someone's leaving drinks, which happens often. People are truly happy for the lucky soul who escape. When you walk through the agency, it looks as if it was a weekend with empty desks and abandoned pods littered throughout the halls.

    All of this is a result of the management not caring about the people that work for them or any sort of transparency on how the business is operating to motivate employees. If you want a future in advertising or a place to develop your skills and talent, this isn't the place for you.

    Conseils à la direction

    Clean house of legacy leadership staff. They aren't willing to change the way the place is operating. Whatever they are currently doing is clearly not working given the number of people and clients exiting.
