    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at BBDO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great accounts and clients with name recognition. Lots of opportunity to jump in and ask questions in all sorts of areas if you have a great team on one of the larger accounts, but you get way more experience on a quicker basis on smaller teams. The work is always incredible and it's great to share with family and friends.

    Cons

    Being a self starter is a requirement and you have to actively follow up for reviews. There is no clear line or process for career advancement it often entirely depends upon your team and if your direct manager will advocate and keep pushing for you over the months it takes to get full approval. Large agencies are rife with politics and BBDO is no exception. Depending on your team there are incredibly long hours, including weekends.

    I worked at BBDO

    Pros

    The people that you worked with really help you throughout your internship. I was lucky enough to get work with several different brands in a span of 5 months. I was treated as a team, not as an intern.

    Cons

    the long long hours and datelines. If you get a good client then you're ok.
