Great Career Starter - Not a Career Place
Supervisor (Former Employee) –  New York, NYNovember 23, 2013
Like many agencies, this place is a great way to get started in your career. You get to do a lot of work and variety of industries and gain a lot of experience.

But, to progress, you have to be a douchy self-promoter and sycophantic brown-noser. AND, you have abandon all semblance of doing real work and focus on selling.

That becomes limiting and your avenues for future growth narrow and narrow to just agency world or possibly vendor world.

For long-term, if you have dreams of being a VP or CMO and really RUN a marketing department, this agency and others are not good.

The management likes the self-promoters and salesy types - those get promoted. The Doers do not get promoted and are often used to do the work while others take credit.

Then there is constant pressure to validate and justify your work.

There is little room for growth until either a new, big client is signed or some turnover happens.

And turnovers are frequent.

AND - you can be fired if the client simply doesn't like you.
Pros
Google lunches, after work parties, holiday parties in night clubs
Cons
No bonuses, no raises, little promotion, favors towards self-promoters rather than doers

About RM
Senior Advertising Coordinator (Current Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 13, 2013
It's a huge Agency, owned by Omnicom. Lots of clients. Lots of work. Not well staffed. Some managers better than others.

Decent enough start but look elsewhere for advancement and pay
Paid Search Coordinator (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 15, 2013
As a coordinator you are responsible for the execution, pacing, optimization, and maintenance of search/social campaigns.

You work heavily in Excel and run campaigns using Google Adwords, Bing Ads, Facebook and Twitter using 3rd party API partners.

OMD is the larger company which usually owns the client relationship and it gets tricky having to deal with them as they are after larger budgets for themselves and may not understand search too well. Relationships with OMD counterparts vary based on client.

Depending on what team you work in, work load can be manageable/light to heavy and nearly impossible.

Management is slow to promote even after they've agreed that you are ready for one. And you will have been doing higher level work months before you get the promotion.

Unfortunately, the bulk of the work will fall on you while your managers leave work early and generally don't do all that much.

Good place to start and understand what this line of work is about but not a place you can stay for years moving up from the bottom (or if you do you'll be underpaid through it all).
Pros
get taken out to lunch/dinner/drinks often by google/facebook/twitter/etc
Cons
long hours, low pay for amount of work, slow to advance
