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's a privately held, stable company, with lots of smart people. The work is strong and the brands are mostly fun.

    Cons

    They're somewhat conservative with pay increases. The hours can be long, depending on what role you're in. They're growing and run short of office space so it gets crowded at times. The chaos level gets high due to lots of new people on top of the typical turnover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not too late for some of you to get out of advertising and use your talents towards the betterment of humanity.
