    I have been working at Digitas Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have been working at Digitas Health full-time for over 5 years. This is a really great place to work. I like working here because the management team has always been invested in my growth and I always feel supported. I’ve been promoted twice within the Project Management department and have had the opportunity to attend many workshops and training that have contributed to my success. Recently I took maternity leave and was very happy with the process. My direct manager and HR manager were very supportive of the time I wanted to take away from work. HR helped me through every step of the process and even provided me with an outlined calendar of my leave. We have a very nice mother’s room to accommodate pumping, which has made my transition back to work easier. There is also a hospital grade pump in the room. Also, the company has a nice flexible work from home policy which has also made being a new parent and transitioning back to work easier.

    Cons

    Hard to fill open opportunities, due to market, which leads to smaller teams with large workloads.

    Pros

    OUTSIDE OF FINANCE Great company. Great culture. Great people. Great philanthropy.

    Cons

    Very unsupportive. As I stated before this is a great company to work for but you are given unrealistic expectations and deadlines from management as PM’s have seen many analysts lose their jobs in such a short period of time. Analysts have lost their job for simply not getting along with management. If you do not fit their mold you are basically set up for failure. Any client or report that seems tedious to management will automatically be given to you. This is not the ideal place to start your career despite all the pros as you will leave thinking finance is not the career for yourself.

    I worked at Digitas Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are a lot of good people there.

    Cons

    Creative teams are understaffed and employees are expected to do the work of 2-3 people. You’re not expected to take vacation. If you do, you often have to work during your time off. Management doesn’t push for great work. It’s more about how much you can get done it the least amount of time. It’s a typical traditional pharma agency that’s not up on the latest trends. Managers are good at managing the work but not people. You’re promoted based on who you know not necessarily the quality of your work.

    I worked at Digitas Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers, clients, projects were fantastic

    Cons

    Upper management getting involved created more chaos then solutions. Micromanaging your team won't get anything accomplished and punishing them for your actions when you get involved with projects doesn't help.

    I worked at Digitas Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    A lot of the people were fantastic to work with at DH! I really enjoyed the friendly banter while getting down to business and producing great work for clients all at the same time. I was fortunate to have a wonderful manager at DH! She was the best one I’ve had yet so far in my career! Despite some of these reviews, the account team I worked with was great and collaborative. Always felt my opinions were respected and disagreements were almost always handled in a collaborative manner.

    Cons

    Though I left for reasons outside of my career, I will say that it can be very difficult to be a PM at DH. Like any agency, there are a lot of personalities and processes between departments to manage and the PM team rarely gets any top down support from leadership. It’s usually the PM team against everyone else and the PM team is usually on the losing side on that conversation. And if it’s you (the PM) against a senior leadership favorite - forget it. It doesn’t matter how many deadlines that person has missed or how many times they ignored client feedback and requirements - your voice will never be heard over their voice.
