    I worked at DDB Chicago full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good Healthcare/Benefits package, 401K, etc.
    Summer hours
    Monthly Happy Hour
    Continental Breakfast everyday
    For the most part a friendly atmosphere and overall good place to work.

    Cons

    Employees of DDB can be very "click-ish". Improvements can be made in their training programs for certain jobs. They rarely hire/promote within the agency...they seem to prefer going outside the agency for new hires.
    Salary/wages can be more competitive and the system they have in place for self evaluation for possible wage increases need to be revamped in all areas.

    Advice to Management

    Improve their training programs. Make a concerted effort to promote and hire within the agency. Be more competitive with wages/salaries. Value your employees.
