No mention is made of what in my experience has been a weakness at CC for over 20 years, being that whilst the firm has a substantial number of very good people spread over most departments and offices which is true of every MC, the quality thereafter is much more erratic than at their MC competitors The reason for this omission may be the obvious one of journalistic prudence or it may be because my in depth exposure to the firm has been much less in the last five year thus perhaps things have changed.
