    Pros

    Some of the most creative staff in the industry.

    Cons

    Creatives don't always listen to Account feedback. It feels like a set up as when you go see the client they make the same comments. Creatives get discouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring sub par SrVPs. Run workshops so account and creative learn to be on the same page during client mtgs.

    I worked at Omnicom full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Looks great on a resume since CDS is part of Omnicom. Decent benefits. Opportunity to build your professional network and learn about all things advertising and marketing.

    Cons

    CDS is still an immature company and the employees are the ones who feel it the most. If you've worked at Ominicom for many many years or are friends with someone in management you're golden, otherwise watch your back. Don't count on career growth - there's no investment in training and little focus on advancement unless you have friends. Communication within the company is terrible - rarely are there company-wide meetings, no training, just work as long as they tell you to - you may or may not get comp time no matter how many extra hours you put in. Some areas are overstaffed with expensive friends, other areas people are scrambling to get the job done.

    I worked at Omnicom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very Corporate feel, and exposure to large deals and corporate contacts. There is some prestige and a huge opportunity to network.

    Cons

    Depends on the department but there is very little appreciation for the contributions of many of the employees, especially if you're young, a woman, or of ethnic background. People are viewed as expendable resources and they will try to squeeze every last ounce of value out for as little as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the talent at your disposal, give credit where credit is due, be more transparent and open about the management structure and style.

    Pros

    Learned a few things along the way because my supervisor was positive. Also learned to never work in an advertising/media company again.

    Cons

    very low pay in accounting dept. never got raises and never got bonuses since day 1, and it got depressing very fast when salaries were cut to pay for executive bonuses. yeah, I found out. nothing is hidden these days. job got even more difficult as more company assets were added. 12-16 hour days, work all weekends.

    Advice to Management

    no advice. great job on paying six figures to morons taking clients to lunch to drain even more media money from them. maybe you should teach your sales people to get clients to pay their bills instead of wasting accounting's time.
