    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.
