      Great workplace

      Pros

      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.

      Incredibly rewarding and enjoyable

      Pros

      Digitas Health was a great experience. Even though the New York office has about 900 employees they somehow maintain the feeling of a small shop. Because of this and some other factors Digitas Health was one of the best corporate cultures I've ever been a part of. I have never again been surrounded by as many people that genuinely enjoyed their jobs as I was at Digitas Health.

      Cons

      Although there is a work life balance, and the company likes to support its employees with the unsaid slogan "work hard, play hard", there is a lot of expectation from Digitas employees. Many a late night was spent in the office working on client problems that could have been communicated through better deadlines.

      Poorly organised, poorly managed, poor miscommunication

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Digitas Health is a big company. And like most big companies, it has great benefits, a few great people, and a variety of opportunities to advance. Every employee has a job title that promotes confidence in their job.

      Cons

      Employees here are too busy. Their always in meetings or unreachable at times. This makes it hard to get work done. People promise to be in touch or get back to you and then. Ball dropped. There's no sense of work-life balance. The lines of "having a life" and working around the clock are blurred. It often seems as though the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. Communication is duplicated. Followups are virtually nonexistent. Feedback on projects is minimal.

      Benefits are good, but thick glass ceiling

      Apr 5, 2016 - Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent benefits, good people, some work/life balance if you have the right position

      Cons

      “Glass ceilings” are a problem at every company. Not everyone can be in senior leadership and get senior leadership money. But, this issue is dragging the company down. It’s definitely a culture where you are looked down upon for not being “in the know”. But, those with access to the client, never share information. It’s unfortunate for the people that actually have to do the work. And, work is not valued in the least. The big “you wouldn’t understand” ideas are gold.

      Challenging

      Pros

      There are plenty of growth/career opportunities. If you like a large company, great benefits with the feel of a small agency, DH is a great place.

      Cons

      Very demanding difficulty maintaining work/life balance. Insensitivity to personal time. Since the larger Digitas company shares resources and the location, DH employees tend to get shafted from the over-all positive corporate resources, functions and benefits.
