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


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


    • 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.
