    Pros

    Great people, fun environment, long hours at an agency but a lot of perks to try and get people to stay.

    Cons

    Lack of vision and strategy, especially in the search field. Nothing ground breaking here other than doing the status quo. Raises and promotions are also who you are friends with, and nothing to do with performance. You will see a lot of dumb upper management people that you will have no idea how they are at the top, and when you hear they have been promoted over and over, it will be even more shocking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the poor management to get real talent to stick around.

    I have been working at DigitasLBi full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Lots of PTO, holidays, flex time, sick days. Good pay. Fun people. Great Location. Depending on your team, there can be a lot of autonomy.

    Cons

    It's a very large organization and the politics and hierarchy slow it down. The main drivers of quality are the largest paying clients, which change every few years. If you are not interested in the particular clients being serviced, you may find it challenging to do your best work. The culture is very reactionary, rather than proactive. So, fire-drills are common.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Diversify. There are too many eggs in one basket.
