    Pluspunten

    Beautiful office, great peers, above-average pay, and international exposure. You'll find some of the most talented writers and designers in Ottawa, and the sense of camaraderie is strong. You'll learn a lot in the first two-three years from experienced and passionate colleagues. But leave before you get complacent...or fired unexpectedly.

    Minpunten

    - Consistent track record of tolerating toxic personalities in management, firing them long after the damage is done - Poor communication from the top. Your coworkers might disappear (one-at-a-time over a week or two, or all at once, like recently). Clients might disappear. The company strategy changes regularly without clear goals that everyone can get behind. - Creative teams are treated well, but account, development, and administrative staff are often left felt like second-class citizens with few opportunities to advance - Mid-level managers, including creative directors, often complain that they have little control, with most decisions dictated from the top.

    - The strong proportion of B2B work means that most clients don't value marketing or want to spend much money on it. This takes a toll on staff, in all the ways. - The top-heavy corporate structure leads to more layoffs than necessary. Thinning out the management and keeping just the best would make the company much more resilient in lean times. We're in a bubble now, leaner times are certainly coming. - Connect more with the surrounding creative community. Fewer people in Ottawa know McMillan than ten years ago. The time that McM could coast on a previous reputation is done - too many people used to work there.

    Pluspunten

    The agency was founded in 1996. So it is young enough to be fresh, exciting and open to new ideas. But it is established enough to have a solid HR function, well-trained and supportive managers, and an excellent work-life balance. As an agency, the clients' needs can often tip that balance during busy times but the agency is very accommodating to balance things out appropriately. It is a very fun, laid-back yet professional environment. And with clients across the US and Europe, there are opportunities for more global exposure--and from time to time, travel.

    Minpunten

    The only cons I can think of are actually consistent with any creative agency of that size (80 people, +/-). Internal communication can be challenging and the inherent 'tension' that can exist between clients and creative pops up now and again.

    Continue to nurture the amazing culture that exists. Develop talent from within the ranks.
