I think it’s still absolutely one of the best shops to be at even if it’s far from it’s heights. But, it used to get away with underpaying and overworking and it can’t anymore because there are more conservative large clients then before. Hence, people looking for greener pastures (although I’d argue few exist).

Agreed. There’s been a larger departure of people over the past few months than I’ve seen in previous years. The culture definitely evolved and once the majority of the employees who were here during the early days left, and the agency growing to its size, it shifted the culture and feels like any other big agency. The people aren’t special and the work isn’t either...

Not defending. But there was a time where creatives were cool with it because of the work they got to do. That dynamic has changed.

DD still is deeply involved and fights for the work. It’s big and has more conservative clients, but you feel like you’re internally on the same team fighting for the same thing

Just out of curiosity, are you sure it isn’t “Drogarian? Was there a company meeting about this: Drogan -vs- Drogarian? Personally I think that calling yourselves “Drogarians” is way cooler since it sounds like something out of GOT.

They’ve had a few rounds of layoffs. Their CCO was canned a couple of months ago for harassment

@droga5 — I heard a rumor that DD might be wisely cashing in and getting out (or at least stepping back). Any truth to this?

Just interviewed for this job that sounds superficially good but I think will take me back to the work I did 10 years ago but will pay my target salary and will have a fancy title (VP).

If offered, should I take it and continue looking or will it look bad? Changed jobs within 1 year once already. At least this job would be spinnable for what I want.
