Company growing into a massive org
Director (Current Employee) –  ChicagoOctober 13, 2017
As part of Omnicom Resolution has access to a lot of great brands. While this has a lot of upside in terms of access to big budgets and the attendant betas and premium treatment from partners like Google and Facebook, it also presents some disadvantages. A lot of current leadership are not particularly knowledgeable of the evolving digital marketplace but rather refugees from sister agencies that are suffering as traditional ad budgets are losing steam. On the whole, the work environment is still fairly laxed and you can navigate your career how you see fit. They have a fantastic training program for new hires compared to competitors and do quite a bit to make employees feel comfortable at work. But as the company grows the typical big-agency politics are becoming more and more commonplace.
Pros
Good benefits, salaries, friendly teams
Cons
intra-agency politics, high turnover

Great place to start career
Advertising Supervisor (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CASeptember 26, 2017
Excellent place to gain skills in SEM/SEO/Social media marketing, but in first few years it'll be at times demanding (I suppose this is true of any agency job though)
Pros
Summer Fridays

Great Place to learn and better yourself while working in a fun environment
Senior Paid Search Analyst (Current Employee) –  Charlotte, NCJuly 3, 2017
I've been able to grow my knowledge of the industry immensely in my time at Resolution. There are tremendous opportunities to learn, practice, test, etc, a variety of digital marketing tactics and strategies on a day to day. Also a great opportunity to work directly with Fortune 500 brands.

The culture is young, fun, and very smart. Highly recommended place to grow a career in paid search.

The company has intelligent, hard working employees. The salary is not above par, but the people at the company make the work worthwhile.

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
