Ogilvy was an extremely fast paced work experience as a DTP Operator working on the Vodacom account only. Only leaving due to Vodacom moving on.Late hours only for 3 days every month and not a daily occurence.The team I work with is very supportive
very good vibe and awesome team
Long hours at a fast pace
A fast-paced, competitive work environment. Personally my time at Ogilvy wast biggest learning curve. Senior leadership is advancing with the changes in communications, making it easy to learn from others. Great office culture of work hard, play hard. Great work is often rewarded.
Ogilvy is well known for its culture and interesting workplace. The culture and work ethics need to be maintained if they want to attract the best people to the company. They are very career growth driven which is great. Managers listen and assist where necessary. The company has difficulty retaining their best staff due to financial issues.
Free Drinks on Friday
Extended hours every month
I worked at a sub-company within it, called Go Advertising. It was a great place to work at - more so in the beginning. I was given a paid internship which was wonderful, and worked my way significantly higher up in a short space of time. Unfortunately the Managing Director at the time was a bit of a problem, and I ended up being made to lease due to a conflict of interest. But everyone and everything else was great.
Wonderful people, lots of events and benefits, as well as a free bar!
Slightly corrupt managing director
I worked on SAB and it was the most challenging and exciting time working on one of the biggest brands in SA. Particularly Castle Lite and Carling Black Label. I got the opportunity to have real influence on this brands, and I looked forward to going to work everyday.
Ogilvy &Mather SA is has multicultural and diverse company that allows individial creativity for both the growth and success of its employees ; clients and the company. Its pulse on the market is always current and relevant . It has an open door policy which allows employees to approach management with qieries on their work and are always assisted with vigour and passion.
On job training
The agency was fun energetic and i loved going to work. Management changed quite a bit, and there were always new faces, but overall i enjoyed working here with my teams and clients.
Excellent company benefits
Started at 6 am and often worked until 11 pm Work was frenetic but the people had a very can do attitude. Extreme deadlines, client was very easy to work with but work output was totally deadline orientated and was all about relationships
Liberal and free spirited work environment
it was a short, yet full time job. i learnt alot about the industry and it got me ready for that world. the business is run smoothly and efficiently, with all areas of employees working as one team. the Durban branch really is full of amazing people who have a passion for their work
