McCann Health New Jersey (formerly McCann Torre Lazur) is a 200-person healthcare/pharmaceutical advertising agency located in Parsippany, New Jersey (about an hour outside of NYC).  For 4 decades, MHNJ has unflinchingly taken on new challenges and been rewarded with wins we celebrate together.  Anyone can create – but we dare to create amazing.

We’re built on a foundation of risk takers and game changers – courageous creators of truly amazing things.  Our leaders pave the way by embodying and instilling our core values:

  • IDEAS WORTH FIGHTING FOR: The creation of the undeniably brilliant idea is what we fight for and why we are here.
  • WE VS. I: We are creative and brilliant as individuals, but unbeatable united as one.
  • WINNING SPIRIT: We love to solve problems, we never give up, we live to succeed (and have fun doing it!).

We create amazing, and treating people amazing is at the center of what we do.  A free on-site, state-of-the-art fitness center, free shuttle from Morristown Station, and additional time off (including volunteer and summer days) are just some of the ways MHNJ, a 2019 Ad Age Best Place to Work, commits to the culture of amazing.  See our “Beyond Benefits” listed below for other perks we offer to make us a premiere destination for the industry’s top-notch talent.

MHNJ is fortunate to be a part of McCann Health, one of the largest global networks in the industry.  This connection allows us to focus on smart creativity while providing access to a breadth of innovative resources.  McCann Health is a part of McCann Worldgroup and the Interpublic Group (NYSE: IPG).
