    Pros

    Fun culture, great experience for young people looking to gain exposure to the industry.

    Cons

    Clients can be needy which leads to overwork, but that's the industry!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrate all aspects of Digitas - Display/Search/S&A/Marketing can appear disjointed to clients and have different goals at times.

    I worked at Digitas as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Digitas does an amazing job of showing their employees how much they value them. Digitas has a very casual atmosphere similar to a college. Dress code is extremely flexible and the perks of the internship are seen throughout. Digitas is a very flat organization in that as a Marketing Intern I was able to interact with many members of the Senior Leadership Team. It was an amazing experience.

    Cons

    I really don't have anything negative to say about Digitas. They treated all of their interns like full-time employees and seriously valued any insight that we had. Just a great organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    Pros

    Incredible work colleagues, inspiring/encouraging attitude, much less office politics than elsewhere, free bagel fridays, free beer on fridays. And yes, some of the managers actually have little booz carts in their offices, just like in Mad Men haha. Also, great workshops and intern tutorials.

    Cons

    None really... Loved it there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Sane place to work, some upper management is wacked

    Pros

    They actually do care about how employees feel. They want you to have a life outside of work. Location is great too - dont have to be in midtown or way on the west side.

    Cons

    It's a marketing run organization, so there isn't a ton of investment in deep knowledge or insight. Some in upper management are insane, and everyone knows it, but since they sell well they are kept around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's a small handful of senior people that everyone has a problem with. Please deal with those people. Value smarts sometimes more than the sale.

    Pros

    The opportunity, the scale, the culture, the benefits, the pay.

    Digitas is a fun and fast paced agency to work for.

    Cons

    You don't get to the position as an agency that Digitas has achieved without the blood sweat and tears of your employees. Make no mistake... you will work hard. All of the perks help make this more bearable.

    This is no different than any other agency. You are expected to work hard. At Digitas at least you are proud to do it.

    -Good feedback from your boss
    -Great culture

    - Digital advertising is Digitas's main service, so if you're looking for traditional advertising (TV, print, etc.), you should look elsewhere.
