    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Go there later and your career and get big money.

    Cons

    Creatives get little respect by upper management
    Creatives have little voice over direction of company
    Sr Management is arrogant beyond belief
    Raises are tiny and rare, so get it all when you take the job
    Sr Managers have little experience running a giant company like Ogilvy
    Accountants run the place
    It's run by fear and intimidation
    You'd have to be crazy to work there as a Creative.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to offer Sr Leadership. Because they wouldn't take it.

    Pros

    Great accounts from creative shop to media and PR divisions. Salary is slightly above average in comparison to similar agencies. Opportunities to learn a lot about other job functions at the agency as a whole.

    Cons

    Promotions based on need at the time and may not reflect good judgment. Sometimes your team may be difficult to work with. A lot of procedural guidelines are missing or thought of on the spot. Raises may depend on the account you are placed and based on budgets.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency.
