    I have been working at Awin full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic place to work! Patient while you learn the job, team supports each other, lots of team building activities. Understanding when you need reasonable time off for personal reasons. Excellent benefits and travel opportunities! If you work hard and do your best, the US Country Manager will do everything in her power to support you and help you grow both personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Expect to work hard - this isn't a place for lightweights.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on team building. It makes the whole company stronger.

    I worked at Awin full-time

    Pros

    The people are great with the exception of the US Country Manager

    Cons

    No training- she does not believe in mentoring her employees
    Has no managerial skills- do as she says and don't question anything
    Very little interaction with employees unless she is no happy with something
    Very negative working environment when she is in the office
    Clicks among employees
    If you're looking for a positive, team environment where you can grow in your career, this is NOT the place!

    Advice to Management

    Train your managers or only hire managers with people skills

    I worked at Awin full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice offices
    You will make a lot of connections quickly
    Beer fridge Fridays

    Cons

    Lots of people start here straight out of university which has created quite an immature and cliquey environment
    The "social" culture is more like being back at school and not representative of working cultures at other companies
    Very high turnover of staff
    If you're an account manager you will be given a ridiculous work load to manage
    Training is quite irrelevant to people coming from external companies
    No exposure to other marketing channels so you can't really develop your marketing experience in anything other than affiliates
    Team Leaders and Account Directors will go to meetings with your clients that you won't be included in but you're expected to do all the ground work
    Not encouraged to do face to face meetings which isn't good for promoting good relationships
    You're a glorified PA to the clients and don't get to do any actual marketing
    Very poor pay
