Pros

The international network supports dissemination of knowledge. This is essential for skill upgradement. The stress is on creativity as large organiGMations are traditionally blamed for being not so creative - JWT has focused on this area of late. This has been done not at th cost of systems and processes that make working at JWT such a rewarding and learning experience. Method is the best learning to take from JWT.

Cons

Salaries are not best in sector. The appraisal system leaves a bit to be desired and there is altogether too much systems and process focus at times such that fresh talent and fresh ideas can be sacrificed on th altar of methodology.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    JWT has a nicely decorated office with real art, clean bathrooms, and some good employee events.

    Cons

    Heavy, clueless management teams. It's a revolving door of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to change by adding more management.

    Pros

    Lots of great people. You can make real friends here. Very social environment. Fantastic roof terrace overlooking Knightsbridge. Right next to Hyde Park which is great in the summer. Bar downstairs. Lunchtime BBQs when the weather is good. Brand name carries weight. Can be a good place to train. Potentially a good place to network, depending on what department you're in. Company is making an effort to create more digital and new media initiatives.

    Cons

    Compensation substandard. Salary increases can be challenging to get. Many people leave to get paid more. Management lacks transparency. Can be political and bureaucratic. Very much an old-boys club. Account management department all over the place, hence many projects never go away. Many people from junior to senior staff get away with very rude and aggressive behavior that would be unacceptable elsewhere. Takes a long time to get anything done due to the size of the agency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value employees and treat them with respect. Pay people appropriately in order to retain some of the terrific talent at JWT. Work to maintain a more civil environment.
