Former Employee - Senior Analyst, S&A in New York, NY

I worked at Digitas full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Surrounded by lots of talented and hardworking individuals
Exposure to different types of work in the digital space
Great company atmosphere (NYC)
Many opportunities to learn and grow

Cons

Sometimes the work can be less glamorous - certain clients/projects just aren't as sexy as one would hope in the advertising industry
While I was there, many hires from outside instead of promotions from within - stifled morale a little
Work/life balance could be better - a lot of pressure on having billable hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More transparency in the promotion process, this seems to be a bulk of people's complaints

Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Digitas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very smart people, good perks for younger folks, competitive wages

    Cons

    Terrible review process, very large agency and can get lost within it. Some creatives think that they are just the greatest thing since sliced bologna.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't really have any. Managing an agency that is that size is a tough gig.
