I have been working at OMD

Pros

Superb client base, including leading clients in many categories. Some brilliant players, well-connected with the industry, and driving innovation in the field. With few exceptions, colleagues are professional and collaborative. Great new NYC office, easily accessible from almost any subway line. Little perks are nice: coffee and bagels everyday, lots of other freebies, drinks on the town, etc.

Cons

Like most agencies, intra-organizational and inter-agency politics do interfere with the quality of work and morale. Communication from upper management to the rest of the company can be lacking.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instill a greater sense of shared responsibility and culture of accountability, including greater access for more junior employees, mentoring programs, and best-practices symposia.

    I have been working at OMD

    Pros

    The name of the OMD company as well as most of the locations. We also get the weirdest holiday's off and summer Fridays which is a very good perk that most other companies do not have.

    Cons

    Some down sides of working at OMD are the hours of work. It is also a very political company and you seem to have to brown nose a lot of management to promote. Other media agencies also seem to pay their employees a lot more so a lot of employees at the assistant and planner levels tend to quit in order to make more money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect and listen to the people who are doing all the work.

    Pros

    Besides its portfolio, you carry its image along with you as you venture with your career adapting professional branding voice that is loud but humble.

    Cons

    The chances of stepping up the ladder is as hard as winning an award after working 24/7.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More acknowledgement to real hardworking peeps.
