So I know droga is a sweatshop for creative. But what’s it like for strategy? My partner is interviewing for a senior comms role there and I don’t know if he should if he values his life.

Also just to add some positive to this thread, your friend will have an unparalleled experience working in D5’s comms department than any other agency’s comms department. It’s one of (if not the) oldest and largest comms departments in the industry. While other agencies are only just catching on and building creative comms, maybe having a handful of people in their departments, droga’s is very established and has a lot of experience figuring out what works/what doesn’t.
