    I have been working at AKQA

    Pros

    If you're into technology and making apps, AKQA is the place to go. But don't expect to learn any branding or big thinking.

    Cons

    The leadership only cares about maximizing profits at the expense of pursuing creative ideas. They don't know how to build brands. Only cares about tactical executions and making money of producing banners and apps. In essence AKQA is a production company, not an agency.

    Pros

    It can have a somewhat of a family like environment. Mostly young and goal driven employees work here. Great work location as well.

    Cons

    Difficult to advance in career at some positions. There is some separation of treatment between different levels and departments of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work with advancement of the company in the digital ad world. Looking forward to many great things to come
