Dentsu America Reviews

What is it like working at Dentsu America?

Crazy while merging but better days ahead.
Executive Assistant in Chicago:
Pros: I enjoy helping people and take pride in making the lives of my executives run more smoothly.
Cons: The merger of so many brands has been painful and not as smooth a transition as it could be.
It all depends on your team...
Associate Director, Creative Services in New York:
Pros: Great team of hard-working, smart, caring individuals who always go the extra mile to deliver great work
Cons: The work isn't always thrilling
Amazing people and work, mediocre rewards.
Associate Marketing Manager in Denver:
Pros: Cross-agency collaboration driving industry changing results for my clients is rewarding for myself and other self-driven, independent employees at all levels and a culture of “hiring all-stars” from across industries and markets positions teams with the technical knowledge and business solutions to consistently outperform competition and win more business and grow contract scope to continue innovating and differentiating dentsu and our clients.
Cons: Standard rewards and recognition, and falling behind as the job market heats up. Dentsu was one of the few holding companies that didn’t fully eviscerate their employee base, which was and is a huge plus. However, the historical agency pay structure is a risk now and always has been. The subsidiary companies are all committed to client value and employee retention, but are owned by a holding company committed to shareholder value. The industry has all the drive for growth necessary, but double digit growth, contract renewals and wins, record legacy client revenue growth and new account revenue are not reinvested in the teams and people that drove company growth, but is divvied out between executive pay/share disbursement/bonuses and majority shareholders. As executive pay reaches new inequality with average AND median pay, agencies will lose more talent to client-side, privately held agencies, and holding companies prepared to buy talent from the competition (although that is due to those holding companies firing hundreds or even thousands of employees at the first sign of trouble with the pandemic, so pick your poison).
Lots to learn and fun projects.
