Pros

The benefits are AWESOME. 25 days of vacation each year, 8 paid company holidays, paid birthday time off if it falls on a regular working day, paid office closure between christmas and new years.

Cons

The company is still trying to figure out what exactly it is. This will surely be remedied in the upcoming months!

Advice to Management

It would be great if Beyond had its own space instead of sharing with its sister company. Having its own space would really accelerate the development of the company culture.

    I have been working at Beyond full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for several agencies all of which have common themes. Frustration with resourcing, long hours at times and not enough time to deliver the quality of work due to budget constraints. This can sometimes be said about Beyond too but the biggest difference between Beyond and similar agencies is its people. I have never worked with such talented, hardworking and genuinely nice people. People who you not only regard as colleagues but also as friends. The heads of departments are a testament to the hard working nature of Beyond and the superior quality of work that is delivered by their teams. The teams work collaboratively together to produce the best work possible. In the last six months Beyond has seen some big changes one of which being the appointment of a new member to senior management. With this new hire we have seen some great changes - Improvements in processes / delivery and communication across the board. People generally don't like change but in this instance she has improved our professionalism allowing us to be able to grow as a business. It’s an exciting time to be part of the beyond team. All 3 general managers across the offices have their different styles and approach to management but are all brought together by how much they genuinely care about their staff. They all go the extra mile to listen, empower and encourage their teams to be the best they can be.

    Cons

    Beyond are still growing and with this can come teething pains and focus needs to be on having global processes put in place. That being said the wheels are in motion and change is starting to happen. Forward planning in terms of resourcing has always been a weakness but longer-term strategies are enabling us to make some more key hires

    Advice to Management

    Give more time to the teams away from project work to learn new skills and keep up to date with market trends.

    I have been working at Beyond full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture is generally good, full of people you genuinely want to hang out with. Great clients and good opportunities to work on great projects with big budgets. Nice offices with a good vibe. Ping pong tables, drinks and snacks on tap. Salaries are competitive but could be better. Nice benefits like life insurance, £500 a year to spend on something you want.

    Cons

    One member of the senior management is downright nasty and rude. Can make days miserable if you're working for her. HR is poor. Employee well being is not a high enough priority. There are also lots of broken promises and staff are often left in the dark as to why. Company needs to be far more transparent to avoid losing great talent. Suffers from the classic "last man standing" syndrome where it seems like a competition as to who can work the latest. Reliance on freelancers with isn't sustainable. Senior mgmt always talk about big plans to grow but don't have the balls to make the hires to allow that to happen.

    Advice to Management

    Take more risks. Hire people before and back yourself to get the work to grow. Reign the aforementioned person in. She makes the office miserable and has been responsible for at least two people leaving the company directly.
