What’s Saatchi & Saatchi like to work at these days? (NY, LA, etc.)
LA - traditional creative is ok, but some stuff is coming that will be pretty cool. digital stuff is all data and content stuff, but they seem to like working on it.
i personally love the place.
I've heard the LA office is terrible.
LA and Dallas work together on Toyota. Been some struggles working between the two offices. Loads of hierarchy with all of the pros and cons that come with that. (More of a challenge to sell an idea internally than externally) But great people abide in both offices with a few random pessimists scattered about. My advice to anyone considering it, would be to pick your boss wisely. A good one’ll give you autonomy and value your opinions. But be weary of the micromanagers and process dictators. Get one of those and you’re gonna have a bad time.
They are doing some very interesting data work in LA. P&G work out of NY speaks for itself.
The LA office is in Torrance, in the South Bay.
It shares a parking lot with a shopping mall.
Plenty of pleasant people working there.
Food options are ehhh.
OP, here’s an example: https://www.google.com/amp/www.adweek.com/digital/saatchi-la-trained-ibm-watson-to-write-thousands-of-ads-for-toyota/amp/
Great question. Was always wondering if someone might ask this sort of question on fishbowl.
Mmm, older people have been fleeing lately.
Wow interesting stuff cd1! Is there a lot of turnover? I was hit up by a Saatchi recruiter recently and I'm interested
Younger people are in and out in about 2 years, people later in their careers stick around for much longer.
@CL2 if you don’t mind elaborate a bit, what kind of data work?
torrance is super suburbs.
@CD1 - again, you clearly haven’t ventured into the food court.
Is Torrance more of a suburban family vibe compared to Venice/Santa Monica/MDR? Never been (clearly).
ACD1 can you elaborate?
@huge1 - not really. people tend to stick around.
I've heard that it's madmen from the 80'S there. Very old fashion and the office is far and ugly. Uninspiring environnement overall. That's all I know
If anyone wants to join a boutique HR & Talent Advisory consulting firm, Kincentric is hiring for an Associate Partner role! Location doesn’t really matter, but preferably in IL, NY, or ATL.
