    I have been working at Digitas Health full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Work/life balance - Amenities in the office (food, coffee, snacks, drinks) - Social calendar (book clubs, happy hours, tailgates, intramural teams) - Continued learning seminars - Internal management training for all levels - Mobility between offices all over the US - Smart people who are great at their jobs - Exposure to all types of work and campaigns - Great benefits!

    Cons

    - Process between sister agencies - Fragmentation between client teams/floors of the office - Onboarding & Publicis software training is lacking - Technology could use an upgrade (only creatives and upper levels have Macs

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employees. We've had some great upgrades and new things happening in the office, which will keep employees around and attract great new talent.

    You will feel supported from day 1. Work hard, and you will eventually be rewarded for your commitment and service. It's a friendly workplace with a nice work-life balance.

    Cons

    No bonus structure. Sometimes insignificant increases.

    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...

    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...

    Advice to Management

    It’s no secret that there is high turnover on the PM team and that being a PM at DH is losing battle. Please start taking a hard look at project management as a whole and the value those team members have to the agency. You’re letting way too much PM talent and dedication slip through your fingers. The reputation DH is building amongst project management professionals is getting really rough and it’s a shame since DH...

      Pros

      Agency is comprised of some great minds.

      Cons

      Also comprised of bullies and snobbish creatives with bloated egos.

      Advice to Management

      Paying way too much for mid grade employeez to bully new staff. Attention needs to be paid to creating a culture of inclusion.

      I am personally disappointed to hear that you’ve had this experience with our agency. As the CCO of DH nothing is more important to me than fostering our creative team’s ability to create magical work for our clients. Inclusion, teamwork, revolutionary thinking are all hallmarks ...
