"A recognizable company with decent benefits and work-life balance. One can feel "lost in the crowd," as can be expected with larger organizations."

"I was at OPR in SF for 2 years and wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The senior leadership care about only themselves and filling their pockets (at any cost), not the quality of work, or the people actually doing the work. We did 360 reviews, but management never saw the results on themselves. Management will pass of junior staff ideas as their own. Horrible place to work."

"I hate working here. The pay is very low and the work is unchallenging. I've been here for years and I've been denied a raise. I barely make enough for New York City living. I was told to save my checks. I tried to change departments and was denied."

"Work and no play - no job satisfaction for the efforts you make, no recognition, the management chews you up and spits you out. The company hires hopeless idiots to be in charge and lead million dollar brands. The work they win with is scam, the awards they get are bought. I wouldn't ever recommend this place as an employment opportunity unless your plan is get in, get the money, and get out."

"What once was a roiling pot of creativity filled with adventurous professionals has degenerated into a bean-counter, stick in the mud culture. The open design of the offices is quite nice if sometimes noisy, but the 11th Ave location is a long haul to get to and freezing cold in the Winter. Ogilvy NY has had a series of very bad years with lots of layoffs, very few pay raises and no bonuses. Management lies and misleads employees. When the times got tough the talented bailed."
