I worked at DDB Chicago full-time
Really good pay and benefits, great co-workers and not a particularly stressful work environment. With new leadership in place, company seems to be moving in the right direction.
Lots of inertia to overcome, still predominantly a television agency that is trying to adapt to a digital world, with more success on some clients than on others.
Advice to Management
Keep adding skillsets in digital media, social, mobile, etc. and fight the inertia that seemed to bog down the place during my tenure there.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at DDB Chicago.
It was a standard interview process, and it went initially through HR and several screening calls before several in-person interviews. Spoke to several layers of management as well as the hiring manager for the role I applied for. The entire process took about two months to complete, and the overall process was not particularly stressful. I would say it was about average in terms of interviews I've gone through.

DDB creates brand influence. We believe that brands have the ability to be both successful in their business and at influencing culture. We should not only strive to make money for our clients, but also to make brands stand for something—to have a cultural significance and impact, not just category relevance. We believe that brands can play an important part in the world ...
Mission: We believe in the power of creativity. And the only way to ensure that we maximize creative potential is by having a belief system in place. We believe in shifting brands to become influential by relentlessly asking pushing from “What Is to What If.” We believe that many brands have not reached their full potential and in order to realize that potential, we must push ourselves and our clients to seek more and look beyond the category norms and in fact, look outside of the existing category.
