What is paid time off like at Ogilvy?

Pros

Ogilvy is great. Good people, interesting work, awesome PTO policy. Despite it being a large agency, I do think leadership and upper management care about lower employees. There have been several instances where individuals have shifted roles or joined other projects due to an individual's interest - and that can be hard to find. They have also stepped up their D&I efforts, which is great to see.

Cons

There are no (or rarely any) raises or promotions. There should be 12-18 month salary reviews for middle management, but that doesn't happen (nor do overall employee reviews). So while Ogilvy is great, your time here is probably limited to a few years at best, because there's no room for growth, and your salary can't keep up with the rising cost of living. It's really unfortunate.

Advice to Management

If there are no raises or promotions, how else can you invest in employees, particularly middle management? Can there be trainings? Hold annual employee reviews? More supervisory experience? Take time to consider what else you can offer what is arguably the most important level in the agency.

Good people, interesting work, awesome PTO policy.
