Approves of CEO

I worked at Iris Nation as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Great people who are skilled, friendly and approachable both on and off the job. Great clients with some high budget, big reach projects providing opportunities to push the boundaries at times. Great environment and location. A merit/results based approach to evaluation rather than timings and box-ticking.

Cons

As is typical of digital agencies focus is more heavily on design and ideas, implementation taking a back seat, even at times feeling like a necessary evil afterthought to the creativity. There is, or at least was, very little technical involvement in the pitching and designing processes which led to both missed opportunities and inappropriate, unstable or technically compromised results. Untimely payments to freelance consultants. All payments are honoured in the end but delays of months are, or at least were, not uncommon.

Advice to Management

Embrace technology and the development process as a creative function and reap the rewards of letting your techies in to the party sooner. The end result will be better products, fresher ideas and perhaps most importantly smoother implementation and delivery, not to mention the soft gains from the increased sense of involvement and importance the tech side will gain.

    I worked at Iris Nation full-time

    Pros

    If the Creative Director is good (which was the case when i'd joined in 2008) its a fantastic place. Crap happened when the management underwent "re shuffle"

    Cons

    Not very happy with appraisal system! Bad management = bad creatives = very bad retention!

    Advice to Management

    Can't say - dunno the situation these days.
