I have been working at OMD full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Bright people tend to excel at OMD. There is plenty of opportunity with a large roster of great clients.
Creativity is generally encouraged.

Cons

OMD is a large company and not always nimble. There is not a consistent corporate culture; it varies by location. Job training is not as excellent as some other, generally smaller media agencies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on a uniform corporate culture that is more exciting for employees.

    Pros

    Great client that will give you great exposure to premium brands and smart people.
    Traditional media perks are a plus.

    Cons

    Leadership does not know how to lead or manage.
    Staff is stretched too thin, often affecting client work and output
    Client expectations are not managed so junior level staff ends up working long hours and become burnt out leading to high turnover.
    HR is great at listening but doesn't facilitate change to show value in employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer eye on structure of account teams.
    HR should implement changes to show value in employees
    Manage expectations with the client so your staff doesn't end up working terribly late hours on deliverables.

    Pros

    Leading culture, good atmosphere and motivation to move forward, good work tools, opportunities to travel and operate international accounts, freedom of self expression.

    Cons

    Results oriented sometimes transfers to profit-only point of view, as in all big organizations smaller markets receive less attention and, naturally, less resources.
