Who does work for Opdivo or Otezla? Wondering how things like this merger affects workflow/does it even trickle down?

Otezla is Evoke. Regarding the merger, it’ll take a year or more for things to impact the agencies. Business as usual.

Not sure about advertising but Weber shandwick/dna does PR for celgene and they are flipping out!

Also they had no sense this was coming. Found out via text message from an ex employee

This was a big surprise... no immediate effect but I’m sure there will some consolidation down the line, also OPDIVO budgets will probably be getting cut, not sure about the Celgene side of things. Their shareholders are sure happy

BGB have much of Opdivo

On the hcp side...

Opdivo is Mccann. But they didn’t originate the campaign

We are pitching Celgene next week and wondering what effect this will have

Opdivo isn’t Celgene...why would it be affected by this merger?

Opdivo is BMS’s oncology moneymaker. They are merging with Celgene, which also has a ton of successful oncology products.

helpful

Otezla is apart of celegene

JWT originated the campaign. Then the team slowly started moving to McCann and well so went the business

Opdivo likely won’t move but it should. That work is not good.

Honestly I don’t think agencies are going to exist the way they do 15-20 years from now. The way they operate is designed for burn out for employees. I’ve worked at a total of 5 agencies across Chicago and NYC, and things end up always being toxic and the work life balance is just not sustainable nor justifiable when I look back. I mean look across this app and see what people post in regards to advertising, we deserve better.
