    I worked at McMillan full-time

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at McMillan full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I get to work with an amazing group of people and I enjoy coming to work everyday. Not only are there extremely creative people here, but they are funny too. I love that there is always someone making us laugh, on a daily basis. It's like a big family. I've learned so much from working here and continue to do so from so much talent.

    Cons

    Can be stressful work at times and trying to juggle the workload from clients, can be crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes, some efforts do get overlooked as they are not always aware of who works on what and when.
