Digitas is a pretty good place to work, with a good company ethos and attitude, but low pay.

Pros

Lots of company events and gatherings, employee focused perks such as health fairs, webinars, and training.

Cons

Can't make up for low end of the pay scale by throwing a beer blast every couple of months. No employee under the level of VP is eligible for any bonus or profit sharing, and the VP and above ranks are kept very, very thin.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have a world class integrated agency with offices in many cities. You have an award winning creative department and a full broadcast production department including producers, editors, and business managers. Yet you still go after only the low hanging new business fruit of digital work. TV is not dead by a long shot. If you want the attention and awards that every agency craves you need to pitch and win accounts with robust broadcast business opportunities

    Smart People, Chaos, Intensely Political

    Former Employee - Vice President, Group Director in New York, NY

    I worked at DigitasLBi full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the smartest people in the business, a great network, some amazing clients. Up until the merger with LBi there were many opportunities to create new and interesting campaigns and solutions.

    Cons

    Too much time on internal politics, top-heavy management, not progressive or innovative enough for a digital shop. Merger with LBI has been a talent disaster. Center of gravity for the agency has decisively shifted to Boston/Chicago and New York office is simply in tatters. Huge outflux of great people. Too few hands on deck to service clients and some very bad biz dev decisions to bring on and retain bad business

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline, get better at rewarding innovation beyond creative teams. Start thinking about digital beyond pricy products and instead think about flexibility and client service.
