    Pros

    * Het is een goede naam op je CV gezien zijn aanwezigheid in de interactieve wereld. * Amsterdam is een geweldige stad om in te wonen en AKQA doet niet moeilijk over de uren. * Als je in de groep past en jezelf creatief kunt laten gelden, redt je het misschien.

    * It's a great name on your resume given its presence in the interactive world. * Amsterdam is a great city to live, and AKQA isn't too bad about the hours. * if you fit in the click, and can carry your own weight in creative, you may survive.

    Cons

    * Onvolwassen, ruziënde leidinggevenden zullen zich eerder passief-agressief gedragen dan dat ze open praten over onderlinge kwesties. * Ontbreken van positieve begeleiding: als je je leidinggevende iets vraagt of met hem overlegt, betekent dat dat je creatief gezien ongeschikt bent - weinig geduld hebt. * Je wordt gezien als een buitenstaander als je niet deelneemt aan de café- en drinkgelegenheden na het werk. * Het bureau is compleet afhankelijk van andere AKQA-kantoren, mist zelfstandigheid in zijn besluitvorming, behalve natuurlijk wanneer er mensen worden ontslagen. * Totale afwezigheid van boekhoudplanning en ware visie. Alles is gebaseerd op improvisatie van de hoge pieten.

    * Immature, conflicting managers will behave passive-aggressively rather than talk directly about interpersonal issues. * absence of positive mentorship: if you ask or brainstorm with your manager, this means you're creatively incapable- running low on patience. * you're considered an outsider if you don't participate in the post work-hours bar & drinking scene. * the agency is completely dependant on other AKQA offices, lacks independence in its decision making, except of course for letting people go. * complete absence of account planning and true insights. it's all based on big-shots improvisation.

    Advice to Management

    Herken het talent binnen je eigen muren en neem de rol van begeleider aan zodat dit zijn vruchten afwerpt. Bepaal je organisatorische structuur: je hebt teveel bazen met niet-bijgestelde meningen en zo weinig talenten.

    Recognize the talent within your own walls, and play the mentor role to have it bear fruit. figure out your organizational structure: you've got too many bosses with unaligned opinions, and so few talents.

    Pros

    The people, the clients, the work, the skills across the company. In a time of transition, so ripe with opportunity to help shape the direction.

    Cons

    In a time of transition. So if you want to plug and play you can, but you will feel uncomfortable.
