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

Pros

Great talent in creative. Great clients to do work for. Perfect employer if you need a couple of years to really ramp up your cv

Cons

We can be a bit full of ourselves at times. Our management can be slightly out of touch with the "people". Late nights and slightly underpaid is standard.

    I have been working at AKQA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people, the work, the opportunities, the clients.

    Cons

    The expectation and acceptance that working over 10 hours a day is normal and the fabric of what makes the agency so great.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time congratulating yourselves and more time setting up frameworks and progression for employees.

    Pros

    Innovative Digital Thinkers. Marquis clients.

    Cons

    Account and billings driven. Creative is a nice-to-have afterthought.
