Great agency to begin a career at - exhausting once you work your way up

I worked at Digitas

Pros

Great benefits and really smart people to work with. Lots of opportunities for learning and development. Does well with providing employees opportunities to experience different types of projects and client accounts through rotations.

Cons

No work-life balance even though management makes a point of saying there's a way to have both! Compensation increases for people who stayed with the company more than 2 years were not on par with the rest of the industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to work on retaining talent that has shown loyalty to the company. When your superstars reach out for help - please make a concerted effort to follow through. They'll be more loyal to the company in the end.

    I have been working at Digitas

    Pros

    at the forefront of pushing digital advertising. everyone in the industry is trying to be Digitas. but being at the forefront means that you are constantly in unchartered waters.

    Cons

    the experience is as good as you make it. its not your typical plug and play agency

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the agency is as only as good as the talent.

    I worked at Digitas

    Pros

    2 kegs on tap in the office
    Lots of social functions
    Good work resources and opportunities to take ownership
    Fun and casual environment

    Cons

    Politics, egos and more egos. Typical advertising agency in this respect, but the competition between departments made things difficult to get done. Overall I thought the structure and work process was extremely inefficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure departments know their responsibilities and roles, and make sure it is consistent across accounts.
