I have been working at Deutsch full-time (More than 3 years)
Exposure to a lot of big-name brands. Creative is judged by how famous you make everyone look at the agency and what awards you win, so there's an opportunity to build a good portfolio. Location is great, just down the street from the beach and right next to a lot of really cool, creative spaces.
Since getting Pizza Hut and Sprint and merging with the NY office, there has been too much of an emphasis on profit and not on working with great brands. We're losing valuable people and probably reducing long-term competitive advantage due to hemorrhaging of the digital departments. For all of the growth in the past 6-8 months, there has been a huge negative cultural shift. A lot of the people that helped build that great Deutsch culture over the past several years have moved on or been let go and the people filling in are not bringing in or adding culture to the building. Random, seemingly politically driven layoffs and firings that were not present in the past. Although many of the management positions are filled with smart, competent people who are good at their jobs, they are completely top-heavy and there is almost no emphasis on developing their team. Management is relied on too much to contribute to constant pitches and client work rather than managing teams. Managing subordinates seems more like a box they have to check rather than anything taken too seriously. Not a team environment. Review process is almost non-existent and gets logged-jammed, making it difficult to understand what you are doing well and what you need to improve on. Also, makes it difficult to navigate through the agency and get recognition.
Advice to Management
"Original and Sharable" is not a thing and nobody buys into it. Stop trying to push it. It's turing more into a parody of Deutsch rather than a battle cry for great work. Take a step back and look at this agency from thirty thousand feet. We've come a long way in the past year or so, but at what cost? You're getting the reputation as a place of burnouts and bulky, bad clients. Find out what's going on in digital and start building it up again. Commit to making work that actually impacts culture and solves a real problem, not just gets buzz for a week and wins a meaningless award. Stop trying to build culture through bloated parties and meaningless get togethers and find out what's really important to employees.
