Former Employee - Associate Planning Director in New York, NY

I worked at Ogilvy & Mather full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Brand recognition and several long standing account relationships. As most agencies, media perks are never ending - if you're still into that sort of thing. Great office space, gym, cafeteria, and bike station.

Cons

Walk into one department meeting in NYC and you'll see how perfectly the staff reflects the demographic (insert sarcasm). In honesty, there are growth opportunities, but it's mostly based on how late you want to stay and the level of brown nosing you're willing to output 60+ hrs/wk. Promotions are possible, however pay increases, not so much. Heavy dog eat dog environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Diversify staff, nurture talent and provide adequate compensation.

    Pros

    Best people to work with.
    Work / Life balance is pretty good and you get the X'mas / New Year week off.

    Cons

    Department went through major restructuring so big lost of morale. Some senior management has no interest in cross training their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are knowledgeable about what they are doing.
