    I have been working at Lawton Communications Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    We are small and privately owned so we are not answerable to some money making machine who only care about numbers. We are owned by the Lawton family and, whilst they want to make a profit, they take CSR seriously and care about the people in the business.

    Cons

    Although we have an office in Santa Monica and one in London, the heart of the company is in Southampton which can make it harder to attract good people - there is this misconception that the only cool place to be is in London and that London agencies somehow have a monopoly on fantastic creative.

    I worked at Lawton Communications Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great training programme, lots of great clients, most of the people who work there are decent.

    Cons

    Not much thought into a sustainable employment cycle - was employed in the boom of the business when lots of business was coming through and made redundant in a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe give a bit more thought into your HR needs.
