Extremely worthwhile but flawed experience

PR Manager (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

Pros- Great brand
 - Smart people
 - Products that make a real difference
 - Opportunity for international travel
 - Interesting projects

Cons- Budgets that go through a continual salami slicer
 - Work life balance
 - Too many meetings
 - Huge difference in experience working in offices and benefits on offer - US was way better than US
 - Constant reorganisations
 - Being forced to use a HP laptop running Windows
 - Excessive politics

Advice to Senior Management- Be merciless in killing properties and underperforming execs
 - Stamp on political infighting
 - Consolidate low value brands like Kelkoo
 - Work out what you want to be and invest in it
 - Focus more on user experience and the ad inventory will follow
 - Pick a budget and stick to it
 - Plan beyond 90 days

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
