    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at TBWA\Chiat\Day full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -The CEO is easily the best I've worked for in my 15 years. Approachable, humble, and energized by great creative.
    -There are some truly world class people in the office.
    -The people in all departments are by in large friendly.
    -There's great potential in this place.
    -You feel like one of the family.

    Cons

    -Next to no work is ever produced.
    -The client roster is riddled with clients no other self respecting agency would touch with a 10 foot pole. You think they have potential... until you work on them.
    -Be prepared to work for a year on the same brief.
    -Long hours due to inefficiencies in the process.
    -A mess of politics between departments (comms planners being CDs is public enemy number one)
    -There's something about the place that breeds apathy. Either it's the bad interior design or the cheap office furniture, or just the air con... there's something that feels a little strange here.
    -Some of the people are brilliant, some are terrible... in my POV the louder they talk, the worse they are.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time on artificial things like disruptor talks, and more time on fixing the processes that are dramatically holding the company back.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at TBWA\Chiat\Day (Playa Vista, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Did a brief phone interview with one of the recruiters and was then passed on for a second round in-person interview at their Westside Office. I met with two women from HR, the questioning was pretty basic/straight-forward. One thing I did find interesting was that one of the interviewers showed up about 15 minutes after it started and the other one left about 15 minutes before it ended, which definitely shook my confidence a little. I ultimately was not passed on to the third round where candidates presumably met with the Executives. The vibe of the office was super cool, very chill and laid back, open-air office environment.
