    I worked at Ogilvy part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Autonomy with deadlines. They give you the space to efficiently improve past processes. The Atlanta office has an immaculate view of the city. Management is helpful and understanding.

    Cons

    I wouldn't say there are many cons except the pay was not very incentivizing.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what you are asking for before you ask for a deliverable in 1 hour.
