    I worked at Digitas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Met some nice people while working here, tuned up excel skills.

    Cons

    Terribly organized department & high turnover. Also, do not care about employee concerns.

    Advice to Management

    Picking and plugging in current employees on a project works if they are willing to adapt instead of ruining structure. No adapting here.

    "Unsupportive team environment where rank and seniority are valued above all else"

    I worked at Digitas full-time

    Pros

    - Learned a lot of valuable information and professional skills pertaining to advertising

    - Overall helpful, collaborative teammates and coworkers

    - Generally friendly culture with fun perks (annual summer outings etc.)

    Cons

    - High turnover rate (my experience; at least 5 team members on a team of ~20 left within the same year)

    - Encourages culture of transparency, but feedback and concerns are often met with disregard or hostility

    - Company commonly values tenure over merit

    - Verbal abuse from superiors is condoned (sometimes going so far as to comment on physical appearance, intelligence, personal lives etc.), which doesn’t foster good team morale or the feeling of a safe, supportive environment

    Advice to Management

    Ignoring genuine concerns/feedback will result in the loss of employees with potential to drive accounts forward.

    Cons

    Work across accounts not consistent
    Terrible work-life balance

    Focus on truly making people's work better instead of bringing in flashy speakers

    Pros

    Digitas gave me a great opportunity to work on great brands and with smart co-worker I was able to grow and learn from.

    Cons

    Challenging work life balance.
    They seemed to have a policy of hire talent below their current title. Be sure to fight for a title that reflects your years of experience.

    Pros

    Very flexible work-life balance - best of the agency world
    Day-to-day work is all self-determined, great atmosphere for self-starters

    Cons

    Promotions are not merit based and solely tied to department budgets meaning you can deserve a promotion for a yr+ and not be rewarded if the dept is short on money

    Advice to Management

    Focus on retaining strong talent
