Ogilvy people are honest and real. People pride themselves in delivery the best creative you can possibly churn out. Hugely collaborative and widely successful campaigns are something to be proud of.

great place, great people, crazy hours
Senior Art Director (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 9, 2014
Pros: good people
Cons: tough hours
For the first few months freelancing I worked every night and weekend and barely saw my family.

On the plus side I worked with an amazing creative director and great account team.

In the end I think we got to sell through good work. I would do it over again in a heartbeat.

Thirsty Thursdays

Essentially Production Centrale.

Great opportunity for me to showcase my best as opposed, and learn how to deal with various minds.

The most enjoyable was to meet deadline as also to shape deadlines.

smart is the new different
Account Manager (Current Employee), Bucuresti, IFMay 6, 2014
and this is how I would describe my colleagues.

Most of them are Einstein smart. With a Schweppes humor, alternated with a Big Bang Theory one but only when they are in a good mood. But also picky when it comes to their work. They expect the best from others and from themselves. And don't settle down for anything less than perfection between rational – more... and fine artwork.

They are kind of role models to each other and me. And hopefully I am one for them. – less

My first Agency and also my last one while more than 20 years in Ecuador
Creative Director (Former Employee), Guayaquil, EcuadorApril 2, 2014
Pros: method and advertising philosophy; environment, management, network.
Cons: i had to leave...
This is a great place to work. Fortunately, I learned the basics of those years, when computers where only at hand by accounting department ; )

Growing up (advertisingly speaking) in such a fun place was a privilege.

I came back after 20 years and despite all the technological changes, I could still feel that the essence is intact.

Horrible work environment. Boring programs.
OgilvyAction Account Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYMarch 2, 2014
Pros: the name "ogilvy" looks great on your resume and the office building is impressive
Cons: get taken advantage of.
The name Ogilvy reads great on your resume and is definitely something you can brag about to friends/family in the business. The downside is that the company knows that--and takes advantage of its employee's as being associated with Ogilvy is a "privilege". The job is 24 hrs a day. You get blamed for everything unless you are a VP. Blame tends to get – more... pushed down to lower positions which-in turn- gets pushed down to lower positions and so on. There are so many middle men that really have no purpose so any change you can bring to the table won't happen for a yr or 2 because it has to get funneled through all the middlemen. The middlemen usually end up claiming your ides as their own if the idea is liked.

Their client list is GREAT! However their programs might as well be marketing programs created in the 50's. Not innovative in any way. Their solution to all their tech problem is to "clear your cache's."

Coworkers try to make other coworkers look bad in order to make themselves look better.

Overall a very unhealthy workplace. If you are truly passionate about marketing programs- go elsewhere as their programs are "safe" and boring. – less

Web/ Interaction Designer (Former Employee), 台北市, TPEFebruary 19, 2014
As a designer, Ogilvy is a good place to get inspired by your co-worker. Everyone in the team was so creative. But you need to work late most if the time.

Receptionist (Former Employee), New York, NYJune 19, 2013
Pros: great envirnonment, great perks such as catered free lunch and paid summer fridays off
Cons: no room for growth and expanasion, bad benefits package, high turnover rate
Ogilvy & Mather is a great place for young, innovative, post graduates to gain a great experience. The environment is very hip and trendy. A typical day at work as a receptionist at this company involved interacting with potential clients which included Senior level executives from companies such as aol, facebook, Gap, etc.
