    I have been working at Ogilvy CommonHealth full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are some genuinely talented, hard-working people.
    The subject matter is often interesting.

    Cons

    Extremely hierarchical management structure, overrun with interoffice political priorities.
    Account management is inexperienced and timid toward clients, but tries to dominate every aspect of every project.
    "Open-office" concept; people crammed together like sardines in a can.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your staff and fellow team members.
    Consult with clients; don't just pander to them.
    Bolting on a digital division doesn't make you a digital-first agency: Integrate state-of the-art digital tools and techniques throughout the organization and help clients understand how digital can work to meet their business needs.

    Pros

    There's some decent people who know what they're doing and really do care about the work and co-workers.

    Cons

    Like any place it's political and they're many who take credit for work they didn't do or had very little to do with. Those same people quickly blame others when things go wrong.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about utilization and concentrate on doing the job correctly.
