    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ogilvy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Ogilvy is a place where proactiveness and effort is respected and rewarded. It's a fast-pace environment that constantly changes, which makes the work exciting. You get to work on top-tier brands as clients, and most team members are thoughtful and people you can learn from.

    Cons

    It's the agency life, so it's not a 40 hour a week job. Raise and promotion cycles aren't always consistent.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Ogilvy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Exposure to senior leadership. -Established mentor/mentee program. -Devoted program management team to monthly learning and development programs. -Competitive salary for an entry-level position in the advertising program. -Opportunities to rotate through some of the industry's biggest brands. -Unlike most entry-level jobs, you are not silo'd to a certain team or craft. The program is designed to expose you to different parts of the agency with the goal of applying each lesson to your next rotation.

    Cons

    -Highly competitive interview process (e.g. two phone screens, final round is a marathon interview day where the only thing you can do to prepare is be yourself)

    I have been working at Ogilvy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The people as well as the breadth and depth of opportunities across the agency — not just in the US, but globally. In New York there are a lot of good perks from weekly happy hours to a full (basically free) gym.

    Cons

    Not much yet. The one challenge is that there's a lot of disruption happening in the industry, so there's been a lot of change.

    I worked at Ogilvy part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Autonomy with deadlines. They give you the space to efficiently improve past processes. The Atlanta office has an immaculate view of the city. Management is helpful and understanding.

    Cons

    I wouldn't say there are many cons except the pay was not very incentivizing.
