Director, Talent Acquisition & Strategy (Futurism (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY 11217 – December 4, 2017
Omnicom is similar to all companies some great departments and people to work with in which you make great memories. The negative is very clickish and minorities do not get promoted at the same rate as other groups.
I would recommend Omnicom if you are beginning your career are if you are a seasoned ad executive that can maneuver well to advance your career.
Payroll and Benefits Manager (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – November 11, 2017
This was a great company. The work day was always full but not swamped. Stayed busy. Iearned a lot from this company as I started when I was 19 years old and left in my 40's. The management was terrific. They did not micromanage and I worked my way up to management as well. The workculture was great. They were serious but allowed a lot of fun in the office. The hardest part of that job was only my commute...100 miles per day and the most enjoyable part of the job was the challenge of meeting the payroll deadlines because I like a challenge and the annual company meeting.
Omnicom has some of the most talented advertisers, designers, developers, strategists, etc. They source great talent. The pace of work is very fast. Things are constantly changing but I made some of my best friends working there.
Great Holding organization but culture varies greatly across agencies
Sr. Vice President, Client Strategy & Integration (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 26, 2017
Enjoyed time immensely but depending on the agency you work for, leadership might be very strong or quite weak. This is the norm for a large holding company. Much of what they are doing today is world class.
Manager (Current Employee) – Burbank, CA – August 7, 2017
Overall, you will overwork yourself for a few years and find out at the end that you will not get a raise and promotion at all... Even reviews don't ensure the your annual salary will increase by standard of living cost (3%).
Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – April 19, 2017
Great place to work, but not to advance your career. Was involved in many interesting projects. The teams that I have worked with consists of smart and motivated individuals, and we have developed a great relationship. No promotion within the duration of my employment was discouraging.

Work load has been too much lately and unable to maintain work/life balance. Learned a lot on systems level and domain administration. Management can be better from top to bottom. People are nice overall...
