    I worked at TBWA\Chiat\Day full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Review is of Engage-Chicago. Location is nice. Nice office perks of free snacks and beverages. That's about the complete list of pro's!!

    Cons

    Upper management and HR is located in NYC, which is a part of the problem. They don't see the toxic culture and ineptitude of the in-office upper management. Upper management is hands-off of the daily projects and sets unrealistic expectations of employees. Some workers are "favorites" and work remote 30-50% even though company "policy" is 1 day a month and never a Monday or Friday. Unheard of in this day and age. ...

    I worked at TBWA\Chiat\Day full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    *Note this is the LA office Super dog friendly Awesome building In-house cafe is really affordable Great if you’re a writer or film-based creative

    Cons

    *this is for the LA office The work always centers around the script. Modern advertising is so much more than a commercial but you wouldn’t know it being here. The LA office has suffered from a string of bad leadership over the past 6 years. Someone further up the chain needs to take a hard look at who’s being put in charge.
