    I have been working at Ogilvy & Mather full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    • Some great people at the agency
    • Are able to get some great work and ideas produced, and also bought by clients
    • Good benefits

    Cons

    • As a large agency, occasionally bureaucracy and layers of process get in the way of producing things
    • Could be easy to get pigeonholed into a specific area, without scope for variance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going with the current aims. And try and push for some things to 'just get done' rather than talking about them.

    Talent Management Administration Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ogilvy & Mather in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had three interviews. First a 'chat' aka telephone interview, I was then invited into the offices to have a test and an interview.
    I was then invited for a third interview and met with 2 more members of the team and who I would be working with.

    Both interviews were very relaxed and I always felt at ease.

    All was very quick and they kept you in the loop all along.

    Would definitely try and interview again for the amazing experience, as it was enjoyable in the most ironic way.
