BBDO Detroit
It’s been more than three months since BBDO Detroit let 145 people go, and today we’re told the layoffs are continuing. A source puts the number at 60-100. We know that’s a broad number and we will update it with more specifics as we receive information. The cuts are across all departments. They are happening, an agency representative confirmed.

Following the last round, there were 480 employees still employed by the agency.

PHD/Organic Detroit
Our source informs us that the Detroit offices of PHD and Organic will also suffer employee cuts. Our information is not as specific pertaining to those two, but we’re told 170 will be laid off from the Detroit offices of Organic, PHD and BBDO. Based on the above figures, that means anywhere from 70 to 110 could be going home without jobs today.
