I worked at Leo Burnett Detroit full-time (More than 3 years)
Good benefits, nice office space and perks.
LBD needs to get with the 21st century if they want to become a progressive organization. Working from home is looked down upon and managment expects to see employees from 9 am to 6 pm. Does this matter if the work is getting done?
And about the work, there is no innovation which is partially due to the kind of GM work and the clients. The clients think they want innovation but that is not the case. Management thinks they bring innovation but that's also not the case.
Management has their favorites and has made no bones about letting other employees know who they are and not to question them. The chosen few will be the only to progress in this backward culture.
The cultural is pleasant but extremely lazy. After working other places, I see how lazy the creative is and that's why they continue to lose business. Too much responsibility rests on account -- more so than other agencies.
Advice to Management
The old school needs to retire and bring in new blood from the outside. Most importantly, let the new blood try to bring the agency in this century.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Leo Burnett Detroit in August 2010.
1 hour phone interview. Followed by a second round in person interview with 3 supervisors, and 1 general manager. Spent about 4 hours going from office to office. Overall good questions, great people.
