    Pros

    benefits are good here but growth is lousy if you are middle management

    Cons

    salary ranges are definitely on the low side. not enough women on top. not very good at flex hours or telecommuting as the company is run by males whose wives stay home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    need to be more flexible with working moms

    I worked at Omnicom full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Provides some learning opportunities and training seminars. And free bagels.

    Cons

    The buying team is one of the worst I've worked with. They give you attitude when you ask them to do, you know, their job after they've been at a rep lunch for 2 hours and want to leave by 5:30. Almost all people I worked with were quick to point fingers over any mistake but were slow to find solutions to the problem. While they did their work (most of the time), the whole environment is too corporate and not fun to be in. Department is unorganized, often transitioning people to different accounts while providing little training time. Also, the CEO of the department is out of touch, thinking an appropriate "team building" meeting consists of making employees review a random case study and asking questions about it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you only care about hiring people who hate their jobs, do only what they have to do, then leave promptly at 5pm then continue what you are doing. If you want to hire people who are passionate about what they do and want to give 110%, then you need to give more incentives than free bagels and crappy seminars.

    Pros

    Company reputation and leadership in the advertising industry. Diversified portfolio of marketing and advertising related companies. Good client base with diversified roster.

    Cons

    Too big a company to get noticed at certain career levels. Loss of an account usually means cut backs to keep the stock and bottomline in tack.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look beyond management to the "worker bees" withi in the organization to get a realistic picture of the work that is done at that level.

    Decent Place to Work

    I worked at Omnicom

    Pros

    For the most part, management at Omnicom seems to care about you. Many people have worked with the company for a long time. Feels like a small place to work even though it's technically big.

    Cons

    Communication about changes in upper management is not always the best. Director-level personnel sometimes are not the strongest in their field but are retained due to their seniority or connections.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the lines of communications more open to all agencies within the Omnicom family and encourage agencies to do the same... This should apply to all news - positive or negative. Given that one of Omnicom's (and Omnicom agencies') strengths is a familial atmosphere, employees should not be kept in the dark about bad news such as layoffs and staff changes. They should be given the proper information in better timing so that they can either support the company or make decisions regarding their own careers. In addition, raises and promotions should be given based on merit and in proper timing, and not so often merely as a reaction to an employee's stated desire to leave the company.
