    Pros

    BBDO is a well known agency to have on your resume if you are looking for the experience. You will be working to a well known ad agency in advertising world.

    Cons

    - Sr. management looks out for themselves and often overlooks the welfare of their employees - It can have a forced fun atmosphere - NO rewards for hard work, or even good work for that matter -Terrible clients. Mediocre creative work. No digital chops. The CFO runs the show here which proves that numbers are everything. I went 3 years w/o a raise...and I'm not the only one. Can't get my manager to even give me a performance review. Employees are stretched...if someone quits, they are never replaced. Terrible morale. Sr. Mgmt is out of touch...definitely an 'us vs them' mentality. OLD SCHOOL in every way. -Usually when people start a company they are self-motivated and eager to work hard and do long hours to get the work done but usually normal employees who come from normal companies expect some type of recognition. -Do NOT expect a thank you from management not even a raise no matter how many years you put in or a bonus. Once you realize what this company is about and stop putting in the long hours it will be brought to your attention. -If you don't mind not having a work life balance or not getting any reward just work work work than please go ahead and join BBDO Abu Dhabi office. -Indian infested with a lot of politics and descriminations to other nationalities.
