    I worked at Omnicom (More than a year)

    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.
