    I worked at Glue London full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It was really fun in regards to the social life; lots of very messy drinks and made loads of friends

    You don't have to work that hard - if you're not stupid, the work is relatively simple

    Some really nice people

    Cons

    Management is ridiculous - a whole new team have been shipped in from AKQA which would be great, but Glue doesn't have AKQA's infrastructure - its not working

    No real strategic direction - a lot of the work felt like it was being done just to be done. Not innovative.

    If you are sharp mentally - Glue may be frustrating for you. Harsh truth is that you could count the number of great minds on two hands....

    Noncompetitive salary

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leave. Failing that - listen to your staff but ACTUALLY listen. Its no secret that there is at least one leaving party a week. That is not a coincidence. Stop with the high profile, expensive hires and concentrate on investing in the staff you have already.

    Pros

    You can clock out at 5.30 and go home at 4 on a friday. They have inherited some big brands (yet they aren't adventurous brands)

    Cons

    The agency seems to think they are creative, produce good work, and intelligent. All together this couldn't be further from the truth. Almost no one at Glue understands the process from brief through to delivery, so you get groups of people running around aimlessly and frantically. The creative department are terrible, with no idea of what can be delivered digitally. The morale is through the floor. New senior management have taken a sinking ship, and added a few rocks in there for fun - it is a disaster. I am more than happy to have departed Glue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Where to start? No one on the new exec team has made a positive impact on the agency - people on the ground do not respect you. Look at the level of quality of your staff and be ashamed - do something about it.
