As job losses mount at ad agencies of all stripes, it’s getting harder to figure out how digital divisions are fairing. We’ve already learned of many interactive agencies — including Razorfish, Digitas, and Organic — that have eliminated positions. However the cuts at large, integrated agencies are as opaque as they are frequent. Today brought reports of a 3,500 person headcount reduction at Omnicom, including 189 U.S. jobs lost at BBDO, and middle-management reductions at WPP. Are those cuts affecting Web creatives, planners and buyers? The holding companies aren’t saying.
And so we’re relying on you, readers, to tip us about staffing changes at your agencies. Send a quick note and let us know how you’re fairing.
