    I have been working at Ogilvy & Mather


    The people are great - smart, talented, funny, and generally awesome to be around. The people who work at Ogilvy are often times what make other people stay. Benefits are nice - we get the week between Christmas and New Year's off, which is great.


    Work-life balance is hard to achieve here. In my experience, direct managers are very appreciative of their team members but beyond that, it's very rare to be rewarded for hard work. Many people get stuck in their position for years - underpaid and overworked with little to no support. All of this depends largely on the accounts you work on, but for the most part people - especially in account management - never seem to be able to catch up because they are buried in work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep fostering good office culture, but find a way to reward and retain the best talent - otherwise, they'll keep leaving for other agencies.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and the process started off very quick as I was working with a recruiter, but it took almost 4 weeks to get me in for a face-to-face interview. At that point I interviewed with a few of the team member and the interview was professionally handled. They asked typical interview questions and also some scenario questions to see if I was a good fit for the job.
