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

    Pros

    - Working for world class brands
    - Learning so much from all the talent in the company even from other departments and roles
    - Great sense of teamwork, especially when you have a tough client, you're all going through it together.
    - Most but not all of the execs are seated around everyone else, that says something.

    Cons

    - Be prepared to put in the hours and then some.

    Advice to Management

    Create a more inspiring office environment or get a new one, Even banks have more creative ones these days.
