Pros

Some of the people are great, and passionate about what they do. There's a great opportunity to learn if you work with the right people. I love that 95% of people don't get wrapped up in their titles. You can propose ideas to anyone.

Cons

When senior management makes mistakes, there's little accountability. Sometimes there is a rush to get work finished as opposed to getting it right. Sometimes there is a great deal of disorganization. Morale is kind of low after a lot of client losses last year.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Trust your people more often. Don't shut their ideas out.

    There were some great people there, but absolutely no way to promote from within.

    Pros

    Depending on your skill set and who you report to, you can really flourish. They have some brilliant marketing people.

    Cons

    If you have a supervisor you're not compatible with, it is very difficult to succeed. Unfortunately, a few badly placed managers can make a great many suffer. The company in general is reluctant to promote or encourage employees to grow in other directions than the one they were hired for.
    They would rather hire someone who is already a rock star in that field than give a dedicated employee proper assistance to move into that role. The longer you work there, the more vulnerable you are to being laid off, as loyalty seems irrelevant. In general, they do not have a strong Creative department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, and don't be so short sighted.

    I have been working at Digitas as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Incredible work colleagues, inspiring/encouraging attitude, much less office politics than elsewhere, free bagel fridays, free beer on fridays. And yes, some of the managers actually have little booz carts in their offices, just like in Mad Men haha. Also, great workshops and intern tutorials.

    Cons

    None really... Loved it there!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!
