-Getting to work on social strategy for Ogilvy's biggest clients gives you exposure to some of the most innovative work out there. -SocialLab is structured in a way that we do team building, happy hour, all hands meetings like a start up. Yet, we have access to the many benefits Ogilvy offers. -Great people! Everyone I have worked with is so smart and driven that it makes going to work fun.
-It can be pretty draining if you have a difficult/overly demanding client - When campaigns are launching, the hours can be a bit rough. But, that is definitely the exception to the rule and not the norm.1

-Smart group of people -Ogilvy name has a nice ring on your resume
Ogilvy in general is not what it used to be, and unfortunately, the decision to acquire Social.Lab was a huge miss. They've been with Ogilvy for a few years now, and they still act like a startup. With the backing of one of the largest agencies in the world, you'd think they would have assimilated better by now. -The team is incredibly disorganized, the leadership is young and very inexperienced at growing teams and client business. -They keep brining people from their Belgium HQ to grow various teams in the US, but unfortunately they don't know the US market very well, and are unable to win new business. -Most of the media clients are leaving and going to GroupM, so if that's your specialty, steer clear. -The training is minimal, you're forced to practically onboard yourself onto accounts. -No accountability at all -Managers complain about the responsbility of managing teams instead of rising to the occassion. They're more interested in being promoted quickly than the work they're doing. (Part of the problem with a startup mentality) Unless you're on a large account that has a lot of visibility and leadership support, you're completely inconsequential to them, which makes it difficult for your growth. There are honestly better places to work.1
