    Pros

    I learnt a lot in my one year at BBDO. Josy Paul and Ajai Jhala were big inspirations for a newbie like me. BBDO shaped the way I was to view advertising for years to come

    Cons

    Long working hours, and lack of proper team setup

    Advice to Management

    Please ensure your employees are well taken care of

    I worked at BBDO Proximity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in an global account and the advantages were:
    - international team, over 30 nationalities,
    - cultural exchange,
    - global account,
    - great environment,
    - worldwide work exposure,

    Cons

    The downside of having a new team develop is that it can be a constant adjustment and learning process and one must be ready for a dynamic workflow and it takes time to set a procedure in the process of work and to set up a workflow code.

    Pros

    Working between CLM and Proximity teams means meeting a lot of driven, creative and inspirational people. The pace is exciting without being overwhelming. A lot of work events to constantly regroup all employees and instill the CLM/Proximity values.

    Cons

    The interns are paid of course, but it doesn't go far in covering life in Paris. This would be the same anywhere though - and I don't think there is such a good intern culture in London.

    Advice to Management

    Integrate interns a little more into all aspects of the work. I've been lucky to work with everyone from the tech guys to the planners but i know some other people have spent a lot more time stuck at their computers.

    Work stability

    Cons

    Salary might not be up to current market level
