    Pros

    Award winning agency. Good add to resume'. Big name, big talk. Recognizable client names,

    Cons

    Experiential division lacked diversity and was proud of it. Poorly organized and definitely did not have an open-door policy for communications. There was no advocate and the person running the Chicago experiential office was like talking to a brick. I had TWO meetings with him the 3 years I worked there...never spoke and we sat 30ft from one another.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team members. Get involved in the process. Get some diversity. Black and Brown people do spend and they want to see themselves represented.

    I worked at OgilvyAction full-time

    Pros

    OgivlyAction was a fun, casual environment to work in. I always felt that I had access to management when needed for assistance managing my client. I appreciated the inclusion in strategic decisions and exposure to global management. My creative team was great and produced outstanding work for our client.

    Cons

    The agency was outgrowing the physical space. When I left the space was being transitioned to a completely open work space. At the time, working from home was not very accepted, but I would think that would have changed given the need for privacy during certain conference calls. Workload at times was overwhelming and more resources were needed to deliver consistent strong thinking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the in office perks. It's the little things that let people know they are appreciated.
