    I worked at Delaney Lund Knox Warren full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lovely CEO and Creative Directors. Always made an effort and very friendly. Good Christmas party. The team I worked with were lovely, minus one.

    Cons

    Most teams were very clique'y and not at all friendly/ open to talking to anyone out of their team. A PA colleuge of mine got fired after having to take personal time off, she was away a few months and had cover - totaly unfair and delt with extreamely badly. Lack of humanity. I started the role PA'ing to 2 people, within a year I had 5 with no pay rise or notice. Luckily they were nice people and my team were also... very appreciative. Finance lady was very rude and never wanted to help.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Delaney Lund Knox Warren

    Pros

    Very smart management team that promotes and retains their best talent while dealing swiftly but sensitively with bullies and bullshitters. They are widely respected and widely liked. They make big populist work that works with the viewing public.

    Cons

    While the agency is rightly lauded for the effectiveness of their work, the creative product could be more consistently inspirational.

    Advice to Management

    It's difficult to do without appearing self-righteous but make more of the principle of being good to others AND being good at what you do.

    I worked at Delaney Lund Knox Warren

    Pros

    Great client portfolio and good history of work

    Cons

    Too many managers, poor inter-departmental comunication, too many egos

    Advice to Management

    Talk to each other and agree a consolidated approach before trying to tell your staff what to do; get rid of the blame culture; how many managers, managing directors and deputy managing directors do you need?
