    Former Employee - Senior Director Strategy in New York, NY

    I worked at OgilvyOne full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Surrounded by the best brains all around. Wonderful benefits (pension plan, fully decked out gym, full bright horizons benefits, free access to museum) especially for working families (moms and dads), great bring your son and daughter to work days, awesome cafeteria. Flexible working schedule. friendly collegiate environment. Very driven to win. Company very focused on strategy and learn so much from them.

    Cons

    Rules are unwritten and you get around by building influence of power with the people who matter - and the people who matter aren't always the people with the biggest titles. 60% of the game is how well you present, look, and talk. You can be a real airhead and have no substance (like their head of mobile) but because you are handsome and young, you have the CEO eating out of your hands. Also boys network is alive well and present. And even acknowledged. If you are a woman you will certainly struggle to be heard or seen, esp if you tend to look young. they definitely work you to the bones. Raises comes once every two years so when you negotiate, account for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Poor financial management - Ogilvy as a company can be making plenty of profit but because Finance has no sense of how to run a tight ship, plenty gets expensed and uncharged to clients. And then they turn around and tell us they are not profitable enough to give you a raise.

    Interview Details

    Be sure to ask the right questions. In any large organization you can enter through one door but end up working in something you weren't interested in.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiate hard because once you're in your hands are tied.
