    Pros

    I've worked for RAPP for about 8 years and have nothing but great memories there. The people are awesome and the work is nothing but the best.

    Cons

    Now that our former CEo is out of the picture. there's nothing but growth ahead for RAPP.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward.

    I worked at RAPP full-time

    Pros

    There are really smart people who work here, Toyota is a solid account and Omnicom is not the worst parent company in advertising - although they do not match 401K contributions, insurance is higher than other agencies, and stock has fallen greatly in the last six months.

    Cons

    If you are female or LGBT, do not even think about going to work here. It is a hostile work environment on numerous levels. People are disrespectful, upper management allows the bullies to win and when issues are reported, the person reporting it gets laid off in the next round of quarterly lay offs - that happens like clockwork. It's another lawsuit waiting to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Marco the CEO (based in London/NYC) is trying to fix it, but it's too far gone. Marco, shut the LA office down and start over before it hurts Omnicom even more. Unfortunately, your upper management team IS the problem.

    I have been working at RAPP full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Chill environment. You won't go hungry or thirsty.

    Cons

    No support. No training. No guidance. No matter how hard you tread water, you will eventually sink.

    Advice to Management

    Making a profit is important but it should not be done by combining 4 original resources into 1 resource. Back-up support is a non-existance. It's a digital aged sweatshop.

    Pros

    The people were great but leadership destroyed it and continues to do so from their white towers. It's a real shame.

    Cons

    The actual people who did the actual work were great.

    Advice to Management

    As Steve Jobs said, "We don't hire smart people and tell them what to do, we hire smart people so they can tell us what to do." So get over yourselves "leaders."

    Pros

    Analytics team has a lot of knowledge to offer. Open office space, free snacks and juices, bring your dog to work, casual dress attire

    Cons

    They share a building with many other Omnicom companies. Office politics are fear based. Judge mental culture

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

    Pros

    I had a great experience at RAPP. Super creative place to work and a lot of smart people. Managers were generous with promotions and lots of fun company culture things to do.

    Cons

    When you have a lot of super smart people under one roof there is bound to be some conflict. Add late hours with pitch work, etc. and things could get nuts at times- but I imagine that's true of most agencies...

    Advice to Management

    Do you best to protect the people that work under you and help they keep a good balance between family life, work, and self-care. This is always needed, but especially in fast-paced agency life.
