    I worked at Ogilvy & Mather full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people, as in many agencies, are great - pretty much across the board (with the odd jerk)

    Cons

    Opportunities seemed limited; some 'ol' timers' rusted on and never to forsake their positions of comfort

    Still feeling the stain of the change from Singleton Ogilvy and Mather - culturally and structurally

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going - keep pushing - but do much more to recognize its the people inside the business that drive success

    Interview Details

    I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Ogilvy in October 2008.

    I had good referrals at the time and this helped a lot with the interviewers. The questions were related to digital media. Regarding metrics and process of implementing and optimizing a campaign.

    The interviewers were already the people that I would work and this also helped to understand how the agency worked and what they were expecting from this opportunity.
