Smart people, great brands, lots of opportunity. Struggles with digital transformation still.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsAgency with great heritage, strong processes in place, and a lot of very smart people that push your thinking. Opportunity to work with really big brands often on very big marketing and business challenges. Great benefits and good work/life balance. Teamwork oriented culture, very friendly and pleasant working environment. Office in crazy location, but is beautiful with lots of light, a gym, bike parking, showers, nurse's office, cafeteria, roofdeck.

ConsTalks constantly about being all about 'digital' and transforming to a 'digital' agency throughout, but has never really followed through from a senior management perspective. Fits and starts at hiring 'chief digital officers' but never really getting serious about hiring senior account staff who are digital natives and can sell in digital work.

As an added challenge, the agency's zillions of P&L silos separate out disciplines in ways that are truly disservices to delivering for clients. Social is separate from Media which is separate from "digital" which is separate from CRM which is separate from Advertising. Need better integration.

All this being said they do have great digital creative if/when it can be sold through to clients. The work itself is first class. Helped by strong strategic focus of agency.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
