Pros

Really talented, smart people. It's a fun place to work. There is a lot of flexibility and the managers/VPs are helpful in developing your career.

Cons

Promotions are too far and few between, it's hard to make any money here unless you are prepared to stay 10+ years.

Advice to Management

lose the semi-annual promotion cycle. allow managers to promote people who deserve it and give them the power to keep employees who need more money.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The external preception of Digitas runs very high, which is beneficial when pursuing new opportunities. Strategically a very strong agency.

    Cons

    A very strange enviroment that reminds me of the "Stepford Wives" storyline. Again, very strategic, however, very poor with execution/implemtation. Very fake, phony and unwelcoming pool of people.

    Advice to Management

    Take real risk - real RISK - not talk so much! Truly inspire your employees versus hiding behind a very complicated and very subjective employee performance review.

    Pros

    Digitas is full of smart people. You'll learn a lot about the business and work on some big name clients.

    Cons

    Long hours are expected of everyone. Training program is spotty and inconsistent. Evaluation/reviews are also inconsistent (depends on your team/account).

    Advice to Management

    Respect work/life balance.
