    Pros

    Great people to work with - you will make some great friends.

    Cons

    Its a bit like the wild west in there, which worked when the business was much smaller. It now needs structure and investment to support its size, but that doesn't seem to be happening. As far as I can see it will continue to suffer from a lack of planning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people in who know who to operate a business this size/

    I worked at AKQA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -great clients
    -looks good on cv
    -a lot of employees are great, smart and genuine about getting the work done
    -the social life is good

    Cons

    - very, very high turnover. Such a shame they have lost so many good, but very frustrated, people
    - management.
    - HR are dysfunctional/not empowered or both. Don't rely on them to solve issues
    - lots of talk, promises etc and little follow through. The inspirational leader is a rare beast here.
    - planning- high use of freelancers, lots of personnel change and last minute deadlines that could be averted with just a bit of planning

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and stop avoiding the obvious. Walk the talk.
