Which is the right choice? Saatchi NY, TBWA Chiat Day NY, Mullen Lowe NY or BBDO NY? My focus is making cool work for big brands. I would work on cool accounts in all 4 of the agencies.

    Great Opportunities as a Creative

    Pros

    They only work with clients who are open to pushing boundaries which is ideal especially as a creative. Some of the best creative directors I’ve worked under have been at Chiat Day.

    Cons

    Can’t think of any prominent ones.

    Traditional Big Agency

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great for opportunities to get into a variety of projects, different accounts. Unlimited vacation days.

    Cons

    Lots of layers, and can be difficult to feel like you have a voice. Diversity (race, gender, backgrounds) within the creative department is improving, albeit slowly.

    Pros

    - great and talented team - exposure into 360 media planning- - the work is smart and excellent

    Cons

    - intense hours with quick turnarounds - absolutely terrible salary; company does not value loyal employees and prioritize savings over talent - because of this, people leave on an extremely frequent basis which means the workload increases

    Pros

    - Some interesting clients, great creative - Continuing education opportunity (if you know where to look)

    Cons

    - Like much of the industry, horrible work/life balance and general inattention to employee health and retention - Career growth (salary, title) is too gradual, lacks clarity

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Lots of growth opportunities for someone who is entrepreneurial, not a place to coast - DE&I is clearly a priority - Familial vibe, great agency outings - TBWA network offers a wide range of opportunities (domestic/globally) and you're encouraged/supported to transfer as you like

    Cons

    - lack of project management/operational excellence - severely lacking BIPOC in creative - agency runs very lean which contributes to burnout, limited notable client roster - Omnicom
