    Pros

    There are many experienced employees at Ogilvy CommonHealth that a junior executive like myself can learn from. The office is newly renovated to an open floor plan which I love but is open to interpretation. Many people who work there have for over a decade so I think that says a lot about the company. Great benefits and competitive compensation.

    Cons

    The company is large so there is a person for every single job. People don't wear many hats. Also getting anything done can take a while since there are so many layers to the organization. Lovingly known as Slowgilvy. Hours are long but that's just the industry!

    I worked at Ogilvy CommonHealth full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of projects to work on

    Cons

    Long hours, poor management, terrible processes and no idea how communication works. They're the most dishonest, butt-covering group of bumbling idiots in the business. They grind good people and outright lie about who did what whenever they screw up, which is often.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the business, you've got no clue what you're doing. Very very dishonest group. Almost funny how feckless you all are.

    Pros

    There are few pockets of good people at Ogilvy. If you get on a good brand you will be ok and all things are great. They have some good clients that you would like to have in your portfolio.

    Cons

    Very clicky. If your not one to the in-crowd your not woth anything. The leadership is lacking. the work you to no end and don't give a crap about developing there people. Account Driven agency. Creatives are all about them selves and the digital team -- well what do they really do other ten cause problems.

    Advice to Management

    invest in your people. it the people that make you great, not the clients. Some of the leadership should just step down as they are out of there element in the new age of advertising.

    I worked at Ogilvy CommonHealth as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Managers are engaging and want you to learn as much as possible during your summer. The interns work on a summer-long project which kept us engaged over the course of the 9 weeks.

    Cons

    Not as much work to keep me busy as I had hoped, but I understand it was a slower summer than usual. Wish I had more hands on work to participate in and work on.

    I worked at Ogilvy CommonHealth as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great opportunity if you want experience in the pharmaceutical industry.
    - Awesome sense of corporate responsibility
    - Relaxed office environment.

    Cons

    - Not very diverse. For every 20 Caucasian people, there are about 2 people of color.

    - Some of the managers were not prepared for interns and a lot of the time, we did not have work to do. Felt like it was a bother to ask for work.

    Advice to Management

    - Would suggest working on diversity and inclusion.

    - Also, needs a better training program, so as to better acclimate new employees into the system.

    - Overall, people were (mostly) nice and helpful. The internship project was the best part though as it gave all of the interns a common goal to work toward.
