    Pros

    Ogilvy has a great name and great clients

    Cons

    You're very siloed within your team. Most people don't know other people outside of their own team. There's not many resources and people aren't friendly. They still have a long way to go compared to other agencies.

    Pros

    The young workforce can both be positive and help push you through long nights. Many people will go out of their way to help you through a particular problem you might be having.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, not everyone has time for you particularly management. The velocity of the turnover, as you'd expect, drives a mentality where you are resource: a line on an excel workbook. Promotion from within typically takes flourishing in a political atmosphere or switching jobs, which is common in the agency industry.

    Advice to Management

    Make developing your employees a priority or don't act surprised when people leave. You can't have both.

    Pros

    The people are amazing. The workplace and culture is more than fair. There is a shuttle service from Penn station, port authority and grand central for all the commuters out there

    Cons

    The company is constantly reorganizing, causing for lack of communication between upper management and everyone else. Promotions are few and far between

    Pros

    Good place to learn media concepts and get an introduction to media. Company is well-known and has name recognition.

    Cons

    Management needs to listen to employees more and improve based on feedback. Action is either not taken based on feedback or is slow and ineffective.

    Company is consistently understaffed and employees are overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to employees more and take action based on their feedback. Hire more people.

    Pros

    Nice office building, services in building like cafeteria, health center and gym

    Cons

    Office location, poor senior leadership, difficult clients, weak salaries, no bonus potential

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Offer raises, not just promotions. Stand up for your employees to difficult clients

    Pros

    Management listens to what you want to do. If you feel stuck, you can have conversations with your directors to help find new directions for your career.

    Cons

    Pay isn't amazing for entry-level positions and there is lack of clarity on how promotions/raises work.

    Advice to Management

    Invest yourself in your employees as people. Learn about their interests and lives, not just their performance and tasks in the office.
