    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at AKA Promotions full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was work in my field.

    Cons

    They weren't willing to give me a chance - especially the lady whom I was reporting to

    Advice to Management

    Give people a fair go and also coach those who have people reporting to them how to be a great leader.

    I have been working at AKA Promotions full-time

    Pros

    Great experience, talented personnel, great accounts to work for and put on your CV, lots of responsibility and opportunities to learn

    Cons

    Bad pay if you’re junior, company is solely concerned with finance and not welfare if employees - easy to not feel valued by company, stressful environment, if you’re in client services you don’t get many perks besides free theatre tickets every now and then

    Advice to Management

    Please invest in your employees and stop seeing them as a cost

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at AKA Promotions

    Pros

    - Great industry, overall great people and atmosphere. - Perfect London location with everything on the office doorstep. - Decent work/life balance (though perhaps not in all departments)

    Cons

    - Payrise is literally something you have to campaign for with very little result. Pay scales are all over the place. Overall, pay is remarkably below the London rate - apart from some well paid "favourites". Left feeling unvalued despite receiving high praise for performance. - Projects/work gets repetitive. AKA retain their staff (as most have theatre backgrounds), however that results in lack of fresh ideas and ingenuity.

    Advice to Management

    Value and reward staff, free tickets and snacks doesn't make up for poor pay.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at AKA Promotions full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great people, inspired leadership, a really good grounding in agency life and full service marketing campaign delivery

    Cons

    Difficult upward progression, tough to side-step into other area of expertise, company getting pretty large now

    Advice to Management

    Core business focus is almost blinkered, explore other live entertainment challenges?
