Pros

There is a goodbalance between working hard and having fun with the company. The benefits are competitive, with plenty of flexibility to work from home and take time off when you need to.

Cons

They don't take care of the internal talent well enough. Some of the homegrown studs get paid less than mediocre counterparts who come into the company and have less experience with the business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take better care of your young talent (talking compensation here fellas!). That way you wouldn't have as much turnover at the lower levels, and wouldn't have to pay so much for mediocre middle managers who don't know anything about digital marketing.

    Working at Digitas isn't much different than working at a factory. Projects just get churned out.

    Pros

    The Digitas name and the clients. People are impressed when you tell them you worked there. But the clients are serviced in a very cookie-cutter way. Not a lot of real creativity once the business is won.

    Cons

    It's a factory. It's not creative, and very bureaucratic. Plus it's very political. It's not what you do, it's who you hang around with that's more important. It's almost like high school in that there are the "cool" people, and then there are the rest. And it's very important to socialize. A lot of emphasis is put on going to company functions, to the point where socializing is factored into your yearly review. That is very weird for creative people, who tend to be more indiviualistic and not company people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ease off on the frat house atmosphere and the partying. There are people there with talent, but because they don't party they aren't noticed.
