    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time (Less than a 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 Management

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

    Pros

    The company culture You work for the most renowned companies in the world Very helpful managers Friendly colleagues Very good location of offices Great name to have on your cv

    Base salary is really low. In order to get paid a salary to keep up with the costs in London, you have to be an account manager.

    Advice to Management

    Increse the entry level salary

    Pros

    Unique proposition that is not seen anywhere in the industry. I can see the future being very good if we start working together and realise the vision.

    Cons

    Senior management from parent company that actually miss the finite difference of who we are and we do what we do.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more - face to face - please stop the emails!!

    Pros

    Good people, highly ambitious business, leverage of DPDHL supply chain yet to be unlocked

    Cons

    Takes a while to gain backing from senior business directors, sometimes slow in making decisions especially when involving changes to their processes. Still some time before real benefit is seen from unlocking DPDHL Supply chain capabilities

    Pros

    You can work independently, no micromanagement. Very chilled environment. They have just introduced good benefit packages and a very nice new office has just been built.

    Cons

    It can be very disorganised. Too many companies are merged into 1 and the relationship is not settled between them.

    Advice to Management

    Try to introduce some more policies, because it seems there is none and everyone can do whatever they want. Don't hire too many juniors. They create a high school environment

    Pros

    Pretty decent working environment with a good learning opportunity. Very little red tape.

    Cons

    Salaried are a little below the norm. Employee reviews are done promptly but salary increases if any can take a few months to go through.

    Advice to Management

    I worked in the NYC office and there seems to be a selected group of people that always get the promotions, salary increases and other perks more than others, specially if they come from the main London hub.

    Pros

    Challenging work Global company, which allows for broader experiences Well known clients Strong Social Responsibility program (we often volunteer in shelters and donate to charities) Great Soho location Opportunity for growth Laid back work environment (casual attire, beer Fridays, cookie Wednesdays, friendly employees)

    Cons

    Strict budgets doesn't allow for much creativity Lots of turnover understandably caused by recent Williams Lea acquisition
