    Pros

    -Amazing culture, great/enthusiastic people, vibrant atmosphere, events going on (fundraising, charity, community, social, etc.). It is more than just a place to work, we give back and it shows. Not only that, the company gives back to their employees but hosting so many events, work parties, little random things (hot chocolate bar, tap room, food everywhere, etc. etc.) -The work is great, client list is great -Smart co-workers

    Cons

    -Internal politics sometimes can slow down a process and make it less efficient

    Advice to Management

    Promote employees who deserve it

    Pros

    Really fun environment to work on. Big clients. Fun work.

    Cons

    Digitas, like a lot of agencies, has a hard time keeping talent in the company. Don't do a great job of promoting within the company because it's hard to do in advertising.

    I worked at DigitasLBi full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great, blue-chip clients. Exposure to best opportunities in the business from a media standpoint. Good tools to do your job and support.

    Cons

    Staffing was always an issue (i.e., not replacing members on the team that had left). There was often a lot of political elements at play, but that is the case for anywhere in Marketing. Have to play the game to succeed there.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure the teams are aware that they are building up their resumes with the work on these clients. It will continue to inspire more dedication and loyalty in a field where there is not much of either.

    fun athmosphere only goes so far.. always a pay freeze, promotion preeze, etc. difficult to get promoted. disorganized in pay and promotion - lots of employees dissatisfied.

    Advice to Management

    make it fair, and pay good talent what they deserve. recognize great work (not only director level and above).

    I worked at DigitasLBi full-time

    Pros

    Free food, great location, some very creative people work there.

    Cons

    First off, Digitas is a big company. Your experience depends on who you work with, who's around you and what kind of manager you have. Going into my job there, I heard nothing but good things about the company. "They have a ton of parties!" or "There's always free food!" Those were very true. A lot of food (I should've apologized to the IT guys about the crumbs lodged in my keyboard). Unfortunately, the breakfast pizza and leftover sushi wasn't enough. When it came to work, creatives were secretaries - doing as the account team says. Many good ideas are born there, but bureaucracy and fear suffocates them quickly. I'm sure other people have had more positive experiences there, but it's up to management to check the pulse of the company and make sure it's operating the way it's supposed to.

    Advice to Management

    Get the account team to play on the same team as the creatives. Get them to rally around the work and not shoot it down immediately.
