    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.


  2. "Good benefits"

    Pros

    401K, vacation, personal time and good health care options.

    Cons

    Each agency within omnicom has its own HR policies and systems.

    Advice to Management

    Management within each agency is different. There could be more oversight from OMC general management over individual agencies.

    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.

    Pros

    Great place to start a career in Media. The company is well known throughout the industry. Very friendly and patient with students fresh out of college. Benefits are great. Management makes you feel like you are apart of the team. This company really cares about their clients but also recognizes the importance of the employees. Pay is pretty good for someone who is fresh out of college with no experience. Co-workers are sooooo helpful even if you work on separate accounts. Great place to grow in the advertising world. Lots of partying in the Chicago office, but when you work hard you can play hard! Great Company

    Cons

    Not much room for career advancement beyond a strategist unless you you're willing to switch accounts, provided a higher position is available.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Tell employees how it is, not what they want to hear.
