Layoffs in January at Ogilvy now DDB. Sort of an open-ended question but what going on at holding companies right now? Are we finally going to see one go under and split up this year? Anyone worried?
DDB Chicago? Once proud agency. Loses McDonald’s (everyone knows We Are Unlimited was a shell for DDB), State Farm and Cap One in less than a year. WTF...
Any senior art directors at NY agencies looking for a new partner? Pref someone at BBDO, DDB, TBWA, Droga, Wk, Mother, T+S.
New work from DDB for Army. Maybe the recruiter there wasn’t ghosting everyone to be rude. Maybe it was out of pure embarrassment. https://youtu.be/7TprgnuYfyQ
Allstate Leaves Burnett. McDonalds leaves DDB. Large agencies/Conglomerates are cracking. Reasons? Is it about the bottom line or the work? I say it’s all about the money. Thoughts?
Is DDB responsible for the "I don't need to smoke because I have JUUL" ads? That's some kind of evil right there.
Wow. DDB wins Army yet loses McDonald’s and State Farm in less than 90 days. Army is huge but State Farm was more than $600 million and McD’s was bigger than that. Who is running that place?
Do we still refer to “traditional” agencies like BBDO, DDB etc as ATL? Speaking to some people about opportunities but not entirely sure what agencies like that are called as opposed to... cont
the US Army just signed a $4 billion contract with DDB. Is that typical for top tier accounts, or is Uncle Sam over-paying?
Well the big agency layoffs have begun. Leo on Monday and possibly again Wednesday. DDB soon. conglomerates only care about money, profit and loss, and the bottom line. lots of families impacted.
What’s the allure of DDB Chgo? I get the bump in salary but for all the talk of great creative they do 1 amazing skittles thing a year and that’s it. And it’s done by Ari’s NY freelancers
Does anyone know what’s going on with DDB SF since they cut ties with JUUL? Now DDB only has 2 clients.
I know of the top-tier agencies (BBDO, DDB, Ogilvy, etc) but I don’t know who the top-tier marketing consultancies are. Is there a real list somewhere, that isn’t filled with design/logo shops?
