Pros

Great team, diversity, attention to personal growth, client-facing projects. Always new opportunities to learn.

Cons

The hours are long, and because the team is project oriented, you will sometimes be dependent on others to be able to complete your work. Not much social engagement outside of the office.

    Pros

    Money, package, office location, that's it.....nothing else

    Cons

    Attitude from management is really poor and there is no two-ways communication, for a company speaking of creativity and innovation, top management shows neither of those qualities or openness to them. Average turn-over of people in the past half year was probably 10 people. They can let people go even if they have worked for them for years from 09:00 to 20:00 or later! Not to speak about the horrible and unprofessional attitude they have when they ask someone go - they literally kick the person out the same day and don't even allow him to send a goodbye email to his contacts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to reform your office culture otherwise you're doomed to keep on loosing people.

    It's all about the incredible people you get to work with. Buckets of opportunity, but you need to know the right people

    Pros

    Great CEO and company ethos, has the right thinking and approach. Clever, fun and interesting people to be around and work with. Creatively inspiring and able to move with the times and adapt. Cultivates an entrepreneurial attitude in everyone.

    Cons

    It's an agency so there are long hours. Different market locations have different vibes, and as with all places internal politics can be hard to navigate. A handful of senior leaders have their own interests before the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in internal communication and ensure it's not just the same senior people you get to see, talk with and listen to.
