Incompetence Run Amuck

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsNice office location. Good benefits. Competitive salary, Free cereal, beer on tap, company parties, company band, free soda,

ConsDigitas moves far too slow to keep up with the pace the advertising world is moving at. Clients and prospects would be appalled if they knew how many incompetent managers work here. These managers lead departments, but don't understand what it takes to do the work. Don't go against them though, because they are lifers and they are friends with other lifers here. They get nervous if you are looking to change things for the better. They will make your life miserable. They will also take credit for any work you do that is good. It's an all around losing situation if you are motivated and want to do great work.

It's also beyond frustrating to deal with a HR department who cannot tell you who your manager is. They'll tell you to set goals with your manager but can't tell you who to report to.

One thing you will get to do is outsource your work. This company only cares about margins so get ready to send that project you love to another country.

I would recommend you look for work at an agency that embraces being organized, training people and doing the best work possible. It doesn't exist here.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf there is money to buy PS4, XBox, MandMs and Cereal, there should be money to buy employees equipment and software they need to do their jobs.

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