    Pros

    The most serious-minded, well-run, efficient yet fun company I've had the pleasure to work for. In fact, folks from my "class" call it "Bronner High." Digitas is an entirely different company. I was there when Bronner pissed off the advertising community by winning agency of the year. I left Bronner in 1996.

    Cons

    We tended to over-analyze the creative, often neutering it in the process.

    Advice to Management

    Should have kept the name Bronnercom. Why would you expunge all reference to the brainchild, the Oz behind the curtain? Ogilvy is still called Ogilvy for a reason. I'll never get that.

  2. Great place if you're young and single, with a very hard glass ceiling for working moms.

    Pros

    • Digitas has a fun work environment, filled with a lot of smart, hardworking, and dedicated people
    • Teams work on projects across disciplines, so there are many opportunities for shared knowledge
    • Creative/Marketing/UI/Technology/S&A etc are all equally important/valued to a project's success
    • Emphasis is on work being smart and strategic first, "creative" second

    Cons

    • Creative department management is a boy's club
    • Easy to get lost in the shuffle unless you have an advocate/ambassador in senior management
    • Company hires primarily type-A personalities which results in too many egos, competition, politics
    • Emphasis is on work being smart and strategic first, "creative" second

    Advice to Management

    Boys in senior management are the problem.
