    Pros

    The smartest agency filled with very proactive staff. Friendly, knowledgeable and more collaborative than most other agencies. The agency is trying to pivot to become more nimble while increasing its expertise in the area of digital. More creative content production seems to be growing in the agency.

    Cons

    Very top-heavy and political. Things can take awhile to happen to the detriment of the clients. Many of the most senior staff make way too much compensation and are outdated in their skill set. The agency needs a younger vibe in this area with people who understand how to market in a mobile consumer world and flexible in being to evolve.

    I have been working at Ogilvy & Mather as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Ogilvy is an advertising agency who already has an established system. It also has good working environment. The salary is not bad and it could be a very good starting point for your career considering it's one of the best advertising agency in the whole wide world.

    Cons

    the employee turnover is quite high, so it's hard to adaptate with the new workmate and clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local people also can do their job perfectly. Don't put only the expatrians on the higher position, it's very intimidating.
