I have been working at AKQA full-time

Pros

Some great talent.

Some decent project briefs

Good for resume

Cons

No evenings or weekends. Work life balance doesn't exist-this place burns people out. If you have a family be prepared to never see them. Be prepared to miss holidays, vacation days and personal days.

Unrealistic deadlines, production mentality, sell executions not ideas.

Unreal turnover rate.

Only value winning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Growth is great, but...Try and keep the good people, you're burning everyone out.

Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Talented people, great brands, ahead of the curve in data science and digital media. AKQA offers a breadth of services in brand strategy, digital media, advanced data analytics, and social media.

    Cons

    Falls into some agency pitfalls like lack of communication between departments, and upper management isn't as involved as it could be in steering the accounts in the right direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure the vision of AKQA is expressed in every account
