This is truly one of the most youth-friendly cultures I've ever worked in. Your experience matters, but not as much as whether you work hard and produce great work on a consistent basis.

Creative management shields more junior employees from a lot of the politics and pitches work anonymously, which gives everyone a fair shot.
Depending on which client you're assigned to, the quality and consistency of work can vary, but that happens everywhere. Because of junior-level employee's remove from politics and upper management, it can make it difficult to get an honest assessment of your work or get something to change.

Advice to Management
Your staff is super talented and dedicated to making great work - consistently push for the best product possible. Be careful not to burn people out on too many thankless projects.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DDB Chicago.
I was referred by an employee at DDB and immediately received an email from HR to set up a phone interview that day or the next. I responded that I was available at their convenience and never heard back. Continued to send follow up emails and was ignored for a month before I gave up. Very unprofessional and a complete waste of time.
