    I worked at OMD full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Nice canteen, good opportunity to work with blue chip clients.

    Cons

    Terrible culture, like a call centre, employees working in close proximity don’t even know each other’s names. They have let numerous people go with very little explanation/fictionalised reasons. Quite political between the different teams. No training but expected to know everything. Junior staff members are treated with no respect. Very little communication from my manager who worked from home extensively. Astoundingly bad HR department who do not resolve issues and pass you on to other members in the team. They also don’t keep things confidential when asked to. I wish I had seen a lot of the reviews on this company before accepting a job there. Not a happy place to work, you’ve been warned!
