      Pros

      Some really great people who roll up their sleeves and get it done. New CEO will bring new life into the agency - but she'll have her work cut out for her in the short-term.

      Cons

      Ogilvy Health is stale at the moment. Some big changes are needed in upper management. The new CEO has made some, but the new planning director she brought on was not a good hire. He's turned a lot of people off with his dismissive attitude, I'm sure he can tell me what type of bias that is... The mid-level account teams that have had long tenure with Ogilvy have not been trained properly, they don't function at their level. Agency needs to focus on management training programs from the top down to course-correct this.
