    kool-Aid and Politics is what it's all about here.

    Creative (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    Prosaccessible to the T. you can now say you have "digital" experience.

    Consthe hacks that were recently Bronner Slosberg are now "digital experts". why? How? because they said so. they sure can glorify the old website, banner ad and occasional video. the politics at the VP level and above is insane. it's all about kissing butt and talking yourself up, and throwing around as many industry buzz words as you can. the top level creatives here could NEVER work anywhere else. and they know it, this place will never advance and never be a real agency. because to do so, ALL the upper management, creative and account would have to go. if you care about having real agency experience and going great work, this IS NOT the place for you.

    Advice to Senior Managementtake a good look around and stop making excuses for the horrible work you do. but you won't.

    no work life balance; inexperienced managers

    Associate Media Planner (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    Prosgod salary, good vacation time, nice office

    ConsAwful work life balance. say goodbye to any sort of life after work as you will be here till 10pm or later every day and will have to work most Sundays. The managers are all kids. They have been trained through the Digitas process only since they were hired right out of college and have no idea how to manage people. The oldest manager on my team was 25...

    Fun but very political

    Dynamic and challenging environment, a great place to learn and work

    Senior Analyst, S&A (Former Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsSurrounded by lots of talented and hardworking individuals
    Exposure to different types of work in the digital space
    Great company atmosphere (NYC)
    Many opportunities to learn and grow

    ConsSometimes the work can be less glamorous - certain clients/projects just aren't as sexy as one would hope in the advertising industry
    While I was there, many hires from outside instead of promotions from within - stifled morale a little
    Work/life balance could be better - a lot of pressure on having billable hours

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore transparency in the promotion process, this seems to be a bulk of people's complaints

    Great Benefits

    Media (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsGreat Benefits, flexible work arrangement, awesome culture, fun place to work. The paid time off is truly hard to beat, especially with the 16 paid holidays.

    ConsThe company can be a bit political, but what company isn't? They also don't provide a great selection of cream cheese on bagel Fridays.
