Intern (Former Employee) – New York, NY – January 11, 2017
I would arrive and talk with a manager about certain tasks needed to be completed on that specific day. While waiting for work, I was assigned to doing a data clean up which was a duplication of vendors when switching systems.
Productive Workplace that Lacked Advancement Opportunities
Annalect - Senior Digital Analyst (Former Employee) – New York, NY – September 1, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of status calls with clients, reporting deliverables, meetings and presentations. I learned several things related to the future affect that 'big data' will have on digital advertising, and advertising in general. My coworkers were knowledgeable and easy to work with. The hardest part of my job was seeking opportunities where I could advance within the company. I thoroughly enjoyed being on the cutting edge of technologies that will have a great impact on the evolution of advertising strategy from both a media and creative perspective.
Workflow Supervisor (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 14, 2016
The people at Omnicom are not friendly and are very focused on themselves rather than the team as a whole in order to serve our clients. They expect you to work 24/7. I have worked multiple holidays and received no compensation for it. There isn't much room for growth either.
Sr. Accountant at Porter Novelli (Former Employee) – New York, NY – August 1, 2016
Finance management team is amazing - willing to accommodate flexible working schedule. Great mentoring provided as well. Occasional perks - such as client freebies giveaways, thirsty thursdays get togethers and monday bagels.

Working at Omnicom for almost four years changed my life, i've leraned a lot and the enviroment was very positive, had the oportunity to learn more abour digital strategies and powered my social media skills to become an excellent brand influencer.
OK Place to work. Annalect has much growing to do.
Confidential (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 11, 2015
OK Place to work. Benefits are good. Nice time off package. Lots of creative and smart minds. Some work/life balance. Many data smarties.
HOWEVER, Annalect has much growing to do. They keep pivoting on solutions and services, which creates havoc both within the team and in client perception - how can we compete like this? Lots of attrition due to uncertainty about where this place is headed.
One of the biggest downfalls is that there are many bullies without a cause. Some are really unprofessional and insensitive towards diverse individuals. Managers receive no management training and have no managerial experience which is also why there is so much attrition. Senior Leadership is clueless as to the pulse of the staff and in nearly 7 months since a problem was identified, have done nothing to handle the staffing issues. There are more directors then there is staff to do actual work - most of these directors should be analysts because of lack of experience - again, many are just plain bullies who need to flex elbows to feel like work will be done and respect will be given to them. Sad.
On the flip-side, there is lots of potential - hopefully it won't be too late.
Digital Marketing Manager (Current Employee) – Madrid, MD – June 30, 2015
too many work for a few bucks. In spain the salary are not accord to the experience and education skills. These company is great, but the Direction board are not the most professionals persons (in Spain). The stress and rudeness are typical in a day of work... Is frustrating to work so hard, and almost 14 hours per day for nothing... Just more pressure and no more money.
DIGITAL (Current Employee) – New York, NY – May 25, 2013
The company has a exceptional work life balance, with employees that are loyal, and passionate about their work. However promotions are few and the salary is under market value, which is linked to the turn over. Working in Pharma advertising is particularly more challenging than consumer. But if you prefer people over money, this is the place to be.
Great work from home flexibility and lacks management support & training resources
Media Specialist (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 25, 2015
I enjoy the culture in Advertising Agencies all around. There are always inclusive activities and "parties" to celebrate various groups, holidays or training.
I feel the management was very hands-off which allowed employees to work freely. However, they were not very good at answering questions or giving direction or resources when asked and did not necessarily understand how to evenly distribute work load in my department.
Good work environment with flexible work from home options to those employees they wanted to include in the program.
Account Supervisor at Dieste (Former Employee) – Southern California – January 29, 2016
This is one of the best companies to work for. The direction they provide is clear and precise. Corporate created the marketing programs and local executives like myself were able to pivot and adjust the programs to local execution. The ability to grow is endless. The ability to work independently that lead to increase sales for the customer I worked with proved that a mutual trust leads to productivity.
