    I have been working at DDB Singapore full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the most creative agencies in SIngapore right now. Being a big agency also makes many resources available to you. As a creative you get a good support in terms of visualisers, photography studio in house etc as well as money to chase awards.

    Cons

    It's huge and one can feel a bit lost there. It's supposed to be the agency of 'nice & talented' people but has started to get political as it grows. Also it's the most 'local' multi-national agency, great if you're Singaporean but most expatsseem to feel the cultural divide (eg people start talking in Chinese during a briefing). Also one of the worst paying agencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than hire a million people and pay them peanuts, get a closer knit, well structured team and pay them better to get quality work done.

    I worked at DDB Singapore

    Pros

    great clients, people are really nice with a low ego level.

    A really good place to start an agency career.

    DDB sets the foundational knowledge in all areas of advertising.

    Cons

    low pay, long hours, very little recognition. especially for all the trooper level - Account Executives to Senior Account Mgrs, everyone pretty much has left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the troopers a career plan. They fought hard for you.
