    Pros

    The agency is doing really well this year with all of the awards, account gains and overall morale. There are definitely some very bright minds at work here and it's not a bad place to start your career in media/advertising.

    Cons

    The pay is low for entry level media planners and buyers and non-negotiable from my experience. The only saving grace is that they started paying us overtime this year, at least in New York.

    Advice to Management

    I know there is a standard salary that Omnicom Media Group pays its entry level employees but if there is a way to be more flexible or at wage-adjust based on location, you'd have more content employees and decreased turnover at the lower levels.

    "Analyst"

    I worked at PHD Worldwide (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are many different projects you can work on which provides a lot of exposure.

    Cons

    There are some people who take advantage of the laid back environment which causes other to pick up the slack. Even if management was aware, it doesn't seem like they care.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your team, all levels. Everyone should be carrying equal weight and when senior members are not they should be replaced.
