AKQA brill clients - awfull management structure

Tekki (Current Employee)
London, England (UK)

ProsIn short you get to work on fantastic accounts, benifits are good, fry up on a friday is cool once a month

Consmanagement just push and push till you fold you work silly hours and get no thanks , coming here is like going back 10 years they think a 50 hr week should be normal and celebrate peopel who do 100hr weeks ratehr than go hay we have somethign wrong here.

Advice to Senior Managementget a grip - hrs spent does not equal good quality work produced , get people to work smarter not longer.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

For technical people hours are not so… Cons: Being creatively led can be frustrating for tekkies - you have to bend backwards to implement their sometimes daft ideas.
