It’s a legacy name with some historical amazing work. There is some good work but it’s hit and miss. Very aggressive culture, with some good people. Everyone is incredibly stretched. DM me if you have any more q’s.

Thanks for the lesson. I had no idea CDP became mcgarrybowen. CDP was an incredible agency. My point about legacy name and previous great work is that can be something that draws people in when really those days are dead and buried (going back to original post asking about saatchi).
