    I have been working at Ogilvy CommonHealth full-time (Less than a year)

    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!

    Pros

    The first place I have worked where everyone in the agency actually wants to be there. The talent that the agency has cultivated is impressive. By far the best creative talent with a complete scientific understanding.

    Cons

    NYC and NJ don't collaborate as much as I would like. Some teams are slightly short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking care of your people and show your appreciation, it goes a long way. We don't expect much but the smallest gestures, which never go unnoticed, are extremely helpful for morale.

    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.
