What is the agency landscape looks like in southern CA? Are there any large traditional agencies there like east coast? (E.g. Publicis, WPP, Omnicom) Thinking move there, but need find a AD job first.

LA is a major market, and most large agencies have an office there.

LA is a huge market for advertising, and every major holding company has a ton of shops out here, littered from Playa to Downtown and everywhere in between. Omnicom alone has BBDO, Chiat, MAL, 180, and that’s just off the top of my head...

Smaller network agencies seem to be doing a lot better than the giant networks, in my experience, here in SoCal. Agencies like your 72, Mal/Chiat Day, Anomaly. The BBDOs, Ogilvys, McCanns, maybe apart from Saatchi LA are almost never doing any work worth noting.

Saatchi LA is basically non-existent at this point

They are all there.

LA is pretty dead.

What do you mean? Isn’t LA an ad town like others mentioned?

So where are the sweet spots in term of schools, housing and to office commute time? I have a kid will be in pre K soon. Also heard LA’s traffic is horrendous.

Dead.
