    I worked at Omnicom Media Group full-time

    Pros

    Smart people, global presence, most of the planning and operations folks are easy to work with. good benefits and standard time-off policy.

    Cons

    Sometimes long hours- typical agency life. lots of last minute client projects. fairly regular turnover and moving positions within company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more attention to career development will increase employee retention

    I have been working at Omnicom Media Group full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many opportunities and systems to learn and gain experience with that are generally the status quo.

    Cons

    Silos are the main issue here. Lack of opportunity to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stopping the turn over was key. Now try and become proactive with your systems, not reactive.

    I have been working at Omnicom Media Group full-time

    Pros

    Summer Fridays and Christmas week off. Very nice perks that most other companies don't offer. Benefits are also responsible and high quality.

    Cons

    Low pay, little room for advancement. Office politics also run rampant here. Senior management is a major concern as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are people and should be respected as such.

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Pay is always on time

    Cons

    Top level management are unskilled in the digital age. Too many top heavy old school employees hanging on to skill sets no longer valuable. Management uses intimidation and politics to bridge the gap. if you are young and skilled stay away. You will not get credit for your work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people in the digital age in positions hire then entry level.

    I have been working at Omnicom Media Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of large and recognizable brands. Young atmosphere. The offices are kind of boring (look and feel wise), but there is a new revamp of offices in next couple of months.

    Internal promotions. Internal promotions. I have been promoted twice since I got there

    Cons

    Rotating to new accounts. It is very very hard to get rotated off of an account to something new.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Probably an industry thing, but don't wait until someone decided to leave before paying them what they are worth.

    I have been working at Omnicom Media Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a lot of young people to meet. Depending on what division you work in, there are opportunities to meet with celebrities, talk show hosts and entertainers. Also, as a buyer, we get a lot of perks (gift cards, tickets, nights out) from our sales reps

    Cons

    THere is no work life balance at all. There is also no overtime. Assistants get paid terribly. Management on both teams I have worked on have left a lot to be desired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We shouldn't be treated with an attitude if some days we need to leave by 5:30 for personal reasons. They expect you to have NO life except work and there is no reward for the amount of hours we put in. No overtime, no bonus, no annual salary increase.

    Both an innovative and focused group of smart, young individuals

    I worked at Omnicom Media Group

    Pros

    -nice and smart people who really care about driving you towards success and personal fullfilllment
    -great environment for young people who are social but also driven

    Cons

    -fluctuating hours, but honestly the company is great it just was not a fit for me. I do not have many regrets working there and recommend applying there

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build stronger relationships with starting employees and train them to know what they should be expected out of them with their work. Giving more extensive training, perhaps online or in some inexpensive way, would have made the transition much smoother
