I worked at Ogilvy & Mather full-time

Pros

When you move to a smaller market than NY, the agency name goes a long way. You do get to swing at some big projects and see how it's done.

Cons

Reality is in such a big shop you need a big title to get some work through, or manage to be in the good graces of a big name.

    Pros

    Fun people, world class brands, time of shift in the agency so it could be a good opportunity to really shine (or really fall), approachable senior management (if not wholly competent leaders), and a nice laid back environment to work in

    Cons

    Organization too top-heavy, too many people having to sign off on something, takes a while to get something done due to all the hoops you have to jump through, resistance to change

    Advice to Management

    Cut majority of top management, be more accepting of change, take down your egos by a couple notches, compensate fairly


  2. "great place to work"

    Pros

    So impressed with the caliber of people here. Surrounded by motivated, energetic, intelligent coworkers. There is a great sense of team work and people are good to one another. There is great camaraderie - it's a fun place to work. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with these people. Great training program. Good place to start and get experience, good brand name

    Cons

    office politics, long hours, "perpetual beta", seems like high turnover and a sense of dissatisfaction

    Advice to Management

    not sure
