Pros

Good healthcare and vacation days off given the company is UK based.
Good location in Soho office.

Cons

Inept senior level management who have brought many of their cronies with them from past jobs. Seem to hire based on personal friendships rather than the requisite skills and experience needed to do the job. Bar maids are hired as account reps and other inept or just out of school employees with little experience in the creative/development departments. The company doesn't pay well in comparison to other agencies so they get the bottom of the barrel with regard to talent.

Also not very good at bringing in new business or retaining existing accounts. They lost several large accounts due to their ineptness. Their managing director comes from a sales background and therefore doesn't really understand the industry or its clients business. Just because you have a Harvard degree doesn't mean you know how to run a design and production agency.

My role was supposed to have a bonus potential and formal review but I never received either although it was stated in my hire letter. The salary is low by industry standards and most people who work there live in the boroughs.

I interviewed at other agencies who are Tag's clients and their opinion of Tag is consistent with mine in that they don't have their act together and are chaotic and disorganized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire management who knows what they are doing and understands the business. Tag has been trying to grow their digital business but their talent has a background in traditional production and are therefore clueless although they present something different when pitching new business.

Reward and promote those who deserve it rather those who have cronies in high places and little to contribute.

Their value proposition is flawed in that they tell clients they can produce their campaigns more cheaply across international markets by utilizing the same creative from another market but in reality their developers spend more time trying to figure out what developers did in other offices when it could have been created from scratch more cost effectively.

    Current Employee - Digital Project Manager in London, England (UK)

    Pros

    Experience dealing with a lot of incoming work on a constant basis. Developing good organizational skills as well as learning to manage huge amounts of work.

    Cons

    Not much room for new skill learning. Work is far too busy to allow for any room for training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At times the job can consume the employee, needing to work late beyond the desired hours. Incentives should be provided for workers to be happy to work late hours. Salary rise, social activities, training, etc.
