    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at AMV BBDO full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good work - life balance, most co-workers are nice

    Cons

    Too many egos higher up, poor pay, no career progression unless account management, they have specific rules about wage increases/promotion once you have been there a specific amount of time and not when it is earned.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to all your staff and not just the people higher up or the departments you are closer too. Stop thinking traditional advertising.

      I have been working at AMV BBDO full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Amazing work. Positive, talented, brilliant people. Humility. Some people can view AMV as a 'traditional' agency, under-rating it as a result; that's a huge dis-service to the quality of the work and the care of the people. Lucky to have a wonderful set of brave clients that love, trust and partner with the agency.

      Cons

      Omnicom's increasing impact and control on the agency is a clear detriment to the agency culture and ability of it to continue to deliver at a world class level. That includes financial controls (rent increases, bottom line and T&E reductions, low salaries that are in-effect frozen, capital expenditure), staffing controls (promotions and hires), and the building (most client offices are nicer, and feel more creative,...

      Advice to Management

      Find a way to leverage the best from Omincom, but reverse some of the controls being imposed. The increasing burdens and constraints on achieving the work must be broken down. Most depts at breaking point due to resource.
