Ability or hard work will not further your career, or save you when cuts come. Its who you know that counts here...

Pros

Its a large company and has a lot of accounts so provides as much job security as you can get in the trade these days.

Cons

Despite dotting the i's and crossing the t's, the senior management couldn't care less about you. Its not uncommon for people to have worked there for 10 years without even a cost of living increase.
Apparently the company never makes any money, or at least not enough to reward hard work or years of service. Nepotism is rife. Account handlers are brought in to do jobs that they either cant do or are not sufficiently trained to do, despite the internal (on job) training which is a joke.
The result is a growing decline in the skills required to work efficiently, meaning the perceived saving on employing cheaper and lower skilled people to do the job is more than cancelled by the costs in production through mistakes/lost time. The culture of uncaring, over bearing and corrupt management means that whilst the worst people are compelled to work at the lowest possible acceptable standard, the better people despair at what could be a much better more productive environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the layers of lazy, inept, cosy management that look out for each other by protecting the status quo, and introduce an incentive scheme for employees to advance, better themselves and the company through hard work. There are good people working at Tag that could be better and more valuable.

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, enthusiastic, committed, hard working
    Big emphasis on sharing knowledge and best practice, developing ideas through collaboration
    You're made to feel like you're really valued and not just a cog in a machine
    Nice bonuses (huge Christmas party, small annual incentives, discounted gym membership, etc.)
    Well organised

    Cons

    Pay below the industry average (£5-10k in some cases)
    Benefits aren't great (bike to work scheme, child care vouchers, PAYG healthcare, free eye tests for VDU users)
    No formal pension scheme, opt-in on an employee by employee basis (although this will change with the new pension regulations)
    No share scheme
    No private healthcare

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can be overly flexible in certain areas (too many ways of doing the same things) which can lead to inefficiencies.
