    I worked at Resolution full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They hire great people Bagels I made good friends here

    Cons

    Lots of overtime Poor management Top-heavy company Sexist (A position was created, and shortened to 'DAD'. A joke was made at a company meeting that it would be funny if the person working directly under them was referred to as 'MOM'. Yes, this really happened.)

    Advice to Management

    Look the people you have working for you currently, and how they affect your overall turnover. Many great people have left the company following bad experiences with management. Review people's exit interviews and use them to make changes. Look at which teams have people leaving in a mass exodus style, and try to figure out why this is and make a change. Don't simply think high turnover is part of the industry - it doesn't need to be when you show people you value them and their work. Introduce management training for people who cannot communicate well (it's actually strange the number of people who are in top positions who can't), and ensure they are having the right conversations with the right people to get the results they need, and hold them accountable. Be transparent about your hiring plans, and stop pretending to look for new people when you aren't. Stop under-staffing teams to inflate your bottom line for your shareholders - the only people who actually seem to matter to you. Stop thinking you can replace everyone when they eventually move on (because you can't, many teams are understaffed for months at a time), and look after the talent you have. Finally, stop creating titles to appease people who have been in the business for a certain period of time, and promote based on merit - not friendship, or gender, or whatever outdated process you're using currently.

    Pros

    Great people who are always willing to help one another, regardless of whether or not they work on the same team. Exposure to big brands. Lots of training opportunities.

    Cons

    Depending on the team, you may or may not receive career guidance from your manager. Every account is run very differently, so switching accounts sometimes feels like switching companies. Culture has started going downhill over the past year or so.

    Pros

    Great people and culture! Lots of opportunity for growth Good career-pathing Flexible work hours when needed Food, drinks, Summer Fridays Fair compensation Fortune 100 brands Best of breed technologies and alpha partners with the biggest digital players Great transparency from senior leadership Everyone at every level is encouraged to be part of making Resolution what it is now and what it will be next

    Cons

    As part of a large holding company there are some decisions and processes that are unnecessarily challenging, but pretty standard for a company the size of Omnicom. With the market for digital talent being as competitive as it is, it can be easier to leave a company to increase salary then staying loyal; more of a systemic problem that impacts most agency's, especially ones tied to large holding companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open two way dialogue Continue to focus on employee satisfaction (happy employees=happy clients) Challenge the industry standard when it comes to compensation practices

    Pros

    Great people to work with who are very knowledgeable. Great, laid back atmosphere helps with creativity. Started in the industry at Resolution, and learned so much that I took with me that will help me for the rest of my career.

    Cons

    Very slow HR. Takes months and months to get raises actually put in place after being told of the raise. Happened to many people in the Chicago office, because approvals have to go through OMG.

    Advice to Management

    Stick up for your employees and get things moving when something has been promised.

    Pros

    Great people to work with Great work perks Meet great partners and vendors

    Cons

    Often long hours, and low pay compared to the work you do. OMD relationship can sometimes be choppy. Workload is very dependent on client. Management is slow to promote even after they've agreed that you are ready for one. And you will have been doing higher level work months before you get the promotion. Unfortunately, the bulk of the work will fall on you as a coordinator while your managers leave work early and generally don't do all that much.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees. Pay attention to what's happening. Stop hiring incompetent people and maybe the turnover rate won't be so high. Stop recycling clients throughout teams, there's way too much account knowledge lost.
