    Pros

    Strong managent overall, fair pay, good communication of firm's strategies, came through recession very well

    Cons

    Management of individual teams can be poor. More attention is placed on recruiting strong front office staff, appears to be less selective for backoffice staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Incorporate 360 feedback for Director and Mananaging Director promotions process to ensure only managers who can direct and manage teams rather than please their own managers, are promoted.

    Pros

    Benefits excellent. Lots of interesting things going on at company. Global nature lets you meet really cool people. Great travel policy (was I believe). Highly profitable.

    Cons

    Territorial for stupid not valid Company slashing staff without weeding out imcompetence. Pure 9-5 culture for most;...some work all the time. Very political. Used to be a great place to work. Really has also screwed up business by putting incompetents in charge. Still stuck in consumer credit when that is a dormant business. Culture scared of Visa, again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that they find a way to treat employees who perform like assets. Stop all the entertainment expense. Build great products not just great ads.
