Saatchi & Saatchi

Account Management Intern

June - August 2019 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I loved how other coworkers took the time to get coffee with me so I could ask them questions about their job and what they liked about Saatchi. Everyone was very friendly and they wanted me to learn from their experiences. My manager even let me go down to work on a shoot and in an editing bay so I could watch the creatives in their element.

What I wish was different

So many people had their own position that it was hard not to overlap work. I wish that I didn't feel like the "coffee-run" intern who did most of the grunt work. I would spend hours or days on reports that no one looked at and it was hard to feel like I actually attributed to an advertising campaign. I was assigned to one account to work on and when I didn't have anything to do, I'd always ask and watch to see if I could help with anything my team needed. Once, I asked if I could help another account as well and they told me "no".

Advice

Be open to network as soon as you walk in the door. Make sure you listen well and always have a notepad by your side to take notes. Also, be prepared - the environment will be very liberal (they drink in the office everyday). Don't be afraid to ask for projects or ask to work on teams.
