DDB have no loyalty to it employment, they throw you out like bath water.
Client Financial Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILMay 22, 2012
I get to work 1 1/2 before anyone else to drink my tea, check my message and reply to each one before I have to start my day. I worked between 9 and 10 hours days, without any overtime. That was me time, before everyone come in and questions. I got along with everyone I worked with, I will fill in when my supervisor asked, never complained about addition work added to my desk. I thought I worked for a good company until I got sick and went on medical leave and they terminated me without any of my benefits.
Pros
fun job
Cons
they just don't care about it's loyal personnel.

Talented and Nice....Yes, it is true.
Global Account Director (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 27, 2017
DDB is known for their employees being nice and talented. And through al of the years that I was there, this held true not only in NY, but also throughout the Network.

I found DDB to have a nice focus on work and life balance and understood that the employees are adults and can work from home when necessary. The culture has turned around significantly with the current NY CEO.

The hardest part of the job was all of the changes in internal process and navigating that. Too many layers in my opinion.

It was also hard to not see DDB NY win any new business for a very long time. I will route for DDB from afar as I hope that they can start to win new business and grow the revenue and employee base to make it the Headquarters is should be on Madison Avenue given its amazing legacy.
Pros
Location, friendly atmosphere, Monday Agency meetings
Cons
No new business wins, some leadership positions

Copywriter Intern (Former Employee) –  Chicago, ILOctober 25, 2017
Anyone of worth was booted or left in an attempt to salvage their careers. This is a sad shell of it's former glory. No wonder they had to make a new agency to get McDonald's.
