    Current Employee - Global Business Director in New York, NY

    I have been working at DDB New York full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent people, culture of "talented and nice". Some talented shiny pennies in the mix
    Bernbach creative equity - just been resting on them for too long
    New NY CEO Chris Brown - could do the trick but time will tell
    Not that bad or any worse than the majority of agencies out there who aren't having a glory moment. It's a tough business, period.

    Cons

    Disconnected executive management. Where's the passion for communications guys?
    Too much dead wood; the "nice" part has resulted in apathy and medicraty.
    Lack of new business wins has been a bummer
    Lack of best in class digital/social expertise
    No CCO right now and not a lot of creative passion
    Limited career trajectory and mentoring; need better rotation programs, training and development
    Someone please fix the rug!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DDB New York.

    Interview Details

    When I interviewed, there was a different UX Director, so it's probably very different now. It was very short, easy, and conversational. I showed some of my work on a laptop I brought, and the director showed me the kinds of stuff I'd be working on, and asked me about them. We talked about experience, capabilities, and outlook. It was very relaxed.
