    Pros

    Extremely talented digital natives who all push one another to do the best work. Highly competitive.

    Cons

    Not all the offices are of the same size and scale and they don't all do an equal job of scaling the business model most effectively.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your independent roots intact.

    Pros

    AKQA's got a great location and a great space, and for a long time it was a great place to work, for the most part. It's a dog-friendly office, and there are some really talented, smart people there. It looks great on a resume, you'll gain some good experience, and make some great connections.

    Cons

    Low salaries, low morale, clueless upper management, over-extended employees, to start with. Whether it's true or not, no one believes management has their best interest at heart, and employees are overworked. There's a major culture and retention problem, starting with the top down. Salaries are particularly non-competitive for developers and tech.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Salaries have to get more competitive to stay relevant in the Bay Area, and employees feel neglected. Walk the floors and put action behind retention talk.
