I have been working at Ogilvy & Mather full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Nice new building. On-site fitness center. Excellent cafeteria. Roof-top deck. Several employee groups and regular events.

Cons

Location is far from mass transit, undefined salary/review/promotion structure. Favoritism abounds. Many high-level managers getting by with "just enough" work mentality. Extremely long hours and low pay for junior staff, especially women and minorities.

Advice to Management

Move from the old "creative" environment. Hire a top-notch COO and establish best practices, especially with managing human resources. Embrace and implement diversity practices and merit based promotions/pay increases. More diverse creative department critical.

    I worked at Ogilvy & Mather as an intern (Less than a 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.
