Truly scarred from my experience at Digitas

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Digitas full-time for more than 5 years

ProsThere are some smart people with good intentions in there and you do get to work on big brands and can build up a solid network of contacts for life after Digitas

ConsThe political environment brings out the worst in people. Backstabbing is rampant and fueled by senor management and HR.

You are not rewarded for work performance rather the only way to get a head is by schmoozing with VPs (verbatim from 2 SVPs).

Most of senior management got to be where they are through backstabbing, therefore, I’m not sure if there is a way to stop the cycle as long as they work there.

HR does more harm them good by perpetuating backstabbing. It’s almost like their function is to stir things up even more.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to rethink your point of view on management. People should be rewarded for performance not for being political and throwing good people under the bus. HR team: You need to re-evaluate your approach as well rather then being a tool for backstabbing used by the malfunctioning senior leadership team.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
