        I worked at Saatchi & Saatchi full-time

        Pros

        I would say there are none. Just that it is a name to put on your resume.

        Cons

        This review is for the Toyota TDA in New York City. - Upper management does not have the skills they need to push S&S Toyota TDA in to the new generation. All of your time will be spent on broadcasting spots or countless banner ads for sales events that disappear in a month. There is no push for important advertising like Social or long lasting campaigns. - Account acts like they are your client, not a team vibe...

        I have been working at Saatchi & Saatchi full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Management has the passion to keep strong employees within the company - helping to promote or shift in the agency should an employee desire. The new Dallas space is by far one of the best cultures I've worked in - open seating, a bunch of huddle spaces to squat on a couch and get away from your desk.

        Cons

        It can be difficult working in the Dallas office if some of your team members are based in LA - need to get situated of the multiple daily conference calls vs in person sessions able to take place.

        Current Employee - Senior CopyWriter in New York, NY

        I have been working at Saatchi & Saatchi full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        The hours are good and some of the people are nice. You get to produce a lot of work. Not that most of it is that great.

        Cons

        The quality of creative is not great. Also, there is a lot of mismanagement. It's too bad because it doesn't have to be like that it the creative directors stood up for the creative more.

        Advice to Management

        Grow more of a spine and stand behind the creative work. Put more pressure on the account directors to provide comprehensive briefs.

        I have been working at Saatchi & Saatchi full-time

        Pros

        the people are nice, good area in the city (375 Hudson), good agency name to have on resume

        Cons

        the current working environment is not good, we have the worst floor in the building, its been in construction for months, the onboarding/orientation process was also very unusual, it was basically just yourself and the HR rep in her office going over a packet of benefits and then you having to figure out the rest for your self, I also didn't get a complete overview of my position and role responsibilities until a month...

        Advice to Management

        please help the office at 375 Hudson, its in bad condition, there are also limited or no supplies (napkins, ice, simple things..) improve the on-boarding and orientation process, I would have expected more from a worldwide and well known agency.

        invest in the future of advertisement by elevating digital to the same standard as TV spots

        Pros

        I love the sense of company culture at Saatchi & Saatchi. Management tries to keep morale high.

        Cons

        Sometimes the management is only concerned about big picture and let's things slide in the meantime.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Saatchi & Saatchi full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        I worked independently, so I scheduled my own week. Didn't have someone micromanaging me or asking what I was doing. Just because I was left to my own devices to learn a ton of new things, I was able to advance professionally and apply my skills to figure out things on my own.

        Cons

        Poor management (mixed direction, unclear about changes) Focused on profit and not overall health of the team

        Advice to Management

        There are SO MANY talented people out there who can really deliver amazing Digital Advertising and turn your company very profitable. Pay attention to the rockstars!
