Great learning experience, low pay.

I worked at Kadence International full-time

ProsThis is a fun place to work most days. Upper management has wonderful attitudes and are open to suggestions for improvements and changes from everyone at the company. Opinions are valued and appreciated.

ConsThe pay is low for the work/hours expected.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe realistic in doling out responsibilities. Raises should be correlated with increased workload to keep talent in house.

Overall, my experience at Kadence is a positive one with some drawbacks.

I have been working at Kadence International full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe best reasons to work at Kadence are people, the flexibility, and the interesting nature or the market research work.

ConsThe main downside is they don't do annual reviews and as a research interviewer there are layoffs at slow times.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice to upper management is to continue with the positve attitudes.

I have been working at Kadence International full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat positive "can do" attitude among the teams. Opportunities to get involved across a variety of sectors and in multiple project types, methodologies etc. Lots of variety and a positive, open working environment.

ConsCan be hard work but that comes with the nature of working in an agency. Still better work-life balance than many of the big players.

The right place to challenge your self

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Jakarta (Indonesia)

I have been working at Kadence International full-time for less than a year

ProsGood working environment and team work with a bunch of dedicated, talented people. Excellent place to learn and implement idea. The management is good and cooperative.

ConsAs company keep growing and the number of clients are rising, sometimes we need to stay longer in the office, but that's normal for an agency. However it was paid off by the compensation, bonuses, and additional leaves.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep motivate and stay close to the employees.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Excellent Place to work for ambitious candidate / employee

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Jakarta (Indonesia)

I have been working at Kadence International full-time for more than a year

ProsComplete freedom to learn and experiment new ideas. Management trains / gives insight / reviews the presentation made by employees. Structured training program, Company focuses on process and people. Understands the client requirement and work towards it and gives importance to VOC “Voice of Client”.

ConsAs we are more focused on Client servicing, there are times in which we need to work late in office.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work

Working environment was not conducive for collaboration and sharing

- Flexible working hours
- Variety of business projects to work on

Cons- Senior management were not very approachable
- Corporate values were non-existent.

Upper Management needs to wake up!!

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

I worked at Kadence International full-time for more than a year

ProsKadence offers a good amount of holiday days, and a scheme were you can go home early or come in late once a month.

Cons1. Kadence does not value its employees and sees everyone as easily replaceable.
2. Individuals at management level have no clue and seem to have failed upward.
3. Clear divide between different parts of the business.
4. Very little room for promotion.
5. Always come up with excuses when it comes to wage increases.
6. No clear HR policy.
7. There is a blame culture where people at the bottom of the pyramid get the flak for mistakes made at the top.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf Kadence is to retain its staff, management needs to value hard working individuals. They also need to set an example to their fellow employees that they really care about the business as a whole.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Optimal size with Colossal aspirations

Executive Director (Current Employee)
Jakarta (Indonesia)

I have been working at Kadence International full-time for less than a year

ProsWell managed. Absolute freedom. People friendly. Continuous Process Improvements. Great work-life balance... or at least striving for it and will surely reach there. Great example for how to keep the best practices of a boutique organization as you grow big.

ConsNone found yet. Hopefully will not find many. Yes we are a bit more ambitious but then that brings passion. We are a bit less patient, but that keeps the quality high. We are also very client-centric and believe me that's not a jargon... it's lived here. We are growing fast so work-life balance gets odd at times but then you are well compensated with the culture, sense of belonging, fun and remuneration.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!
