What it was like at Saatchi & Saatchi
Senior Art Director (Former Employee), 375 Hudson Street, NY NY 10014July 19, 2014
Pros: great brands to work on
Cons: poor morale, constantly losing business, major personnel changes happen sporadically
It was fun, challenging, & very busy 5 years ago. Now, employees are either leaving willingly or being laid off in droves.

SVP, Associate Director Research & Planning (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 10, 2013
• Early on, working on Wendy’s the first time, I learned the importance of social media (then WOM) and it’s ability to catapult a brand into culture, when Ronald Regan asked, “Mr. Gorbechav, where’s the beef?” Ever since, I’ve remained attuned to finding ways for brands to permeate culture, which is critical in today’s environment.
• While working on – more... Tylenol during “the scare,” I also learned the importance of a brand’s ability to establish a meaningful relationship with people. One based on trust, transparency and shared values -- exactly what the realities today’s market demands. – less

Working at an Ad Agency
Research Group Head (Former Employee), NYDecember 28, 2012
Pros: work with the coolest most creative people!
Cons: must always be pitching new business
When I worked at the agencies we still had market research departments. Today these people are called Account Planners and indeed, their skill set is far greater than what we were required to do. In the 80's the researchers were the non-profit department - Account Planners today practically run the Agency. Very different!

Pros: excellent people, environment.
Cons: not enough work to do.
I worked in the Corporate Gym section and truthfully it was great. The only reason I couldn't keep on working there was due to my sister getting sick. I had to take care of my sister until she die.

Financial Analyst (Former Employee), New York, NYJuly 18, 2012
Pros: monthly town hall meetings and lunches
Had six clients that I handled in terms of invoice coding, billing, and month end reports generated to distribute to Acct Execs. Learned that each client had specific requirements when it came to billing and payment. Mgt worked alongside the co workers to ensure that the day to day procedures were carried out and in a timely manner. Co workers were – more... pleasant and were always willing to help out in time crunching situations. The hardest part of the job was completing the deadlines prior to billing, the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting those deadlines and satisfying the client. – less

Beer on tap, ping pong, video games and darts, pretty much a boys club.

Pros: free cereal
Cons: late nights
Your kind of shop if you like all of the above. To move up the ladder you have to be in the CCO inner circle ie he must hire and like you. Lots of pitches, long hours but you can drown them all in some light beer I guarantee it.
