    Avantages

    McMillan has always recruited well, so they have a strong core of extremely creative people, and a few genuine superstars. The workplace is beautiful and encourages collaboration. Salaries are competitive among senior management.

    Inconvénients

    In less than a year, McMillan has gone from being one of the most sought after agencies in Ottawa, drawing new hires from Toronto on a regular basis, to a company that appears to be sinking rapidly. The company has laid off some of its most experienced creatives, and seems to have completely abandoned its hard-won reputation as a great place to work. Current employees are shopping their CVs around and telling anyone who will listen how bad morale has become at McMillan. Rumours abound that the agency is being positioned for a takeover.

    May 1, 2019CEO

    I appreciate your comments, even if they aren’t exactly supportive. As you may already know, ours is a volatile business, and other agencies are experiencing similar impacts and transitions. Current market constraints have required us to make some pretty significant changes. It’s not something we take lightly—everyone at McMillan, including the talent that we needed to let go, are either at the top of their game or well on their way. It’s the toughest part of my job, balancing the books and the culture. Also, for the record, there is no appetite nor plan to sell the agency. My commitment as CEO, and that of Gordon and the other executives, is to continue to build a great agency that does great work and supports a great work culture. Yes, it’s a work in progress, but I’m confident we’ll get there. Wishing you the best going forward, truly. Cheers, Pierre Paul

    Avantages

    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.

    Inconvénients

    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.
