I worked at Ogilvy & Mather as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The atmosphere on the creative floor of Ogilvy New York was as energetic as it gets. I loved working there for that reason.

Cons

A lot of people left Ogilvy within the few months that I interned there. People come and go so quickly that it's hard to build relationships.

    I have been working at Ogilvy & Mather full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Food is paid for when you work late. Nice cafe with a great staff. Awesome building with lots of meeting rooms. Great facilities like a gym and a nurse. Technology is up-to-date and well managed.

    Cons

    No evaluations, no raises, no bonuses.

    Some creative managers don't connect with juniors and juniors are offered little/no mentorship. Juniors are shuffled from CD to CD. Sometimes junior teams are asked for ideas and then rotated off the project. They often aren't given the opportunity to continue to develop their ideas and aren't given credit for their work.

    A lot of creatives have recently left the agency and replacements haven't been hired; as a result, creatives are overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    End your hiring and raise freezes--- you can find the funds in excessive executive spending. It is time to cut back on the thousands of dollars spent on town cars and fancy dinners.
