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.
Pros
Free Drinks on Friday
Cons
Extended hours every month

Lovely working environment,but the salary is not enough. There are opportunities for growth, but that does not help if you have a family to support. Long hours are required , but that is part of the job
Pros
Great people
Cons
Tiny salary

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.
Pros
Wonderful people, lots of events and benefits, as well as a free bar!
Cons
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.

Good for your CV but in general the whole industry suffers from the same thing. Bar nights suck period friends are in cliques and this makes it harder to join

I loved working for Ogilvy CPT. Management was great. The parties were even better! The hardest part of the job is the long hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing the project through from conception to end product.
