    I have been working at Ogilvy & Mather full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Spectacular view and very comfortable office environment with up to date technology. Great location that makes working here a plus. Most employees have great attitudes and are for the most part good people.

    Cons

    Big office politics drive down morale and destroy culture. Too many bosses make it very difficult to get the job done while constant micro management interfere with good thinking. Constant layoffs, low salaries and reactionary leadership create friction amongst all employees. No room to grow or advance in your career.

    Advice to Management

    Change needs to happen from the top down, senior leadership and middle management are destroying the office from within.

    I have been working at Ogilvy & Mather full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice new building. On-site fitness center. Excellent cafeteria. Roof-top deck. Several employee groups and regular events.

    Cons

    Location is far from mass transit, undefined salary/review/promotion structure. Favoritism abounds. Many high-level managers getting by with "just enough" work mentality. Extremely long hours and low pay for junior staff, especially women and minorities.

    Advice to Management

    Move from the old "creative" environment. Hire a top-notch COO and establish best practices, especially with managing human resources. Embrace and implement diversity practices and merit based promotions/pay increases. More diverse creative department critical.
