Pros

If your young and a creative its fine working for AKQA for a couple of years. Junior level staff can learn at AKQA. You'll have to move to another company if you want to advance.

Cons

Anyone else who doesn't get hired as manager or gets hired onto a very exciting client project won't have much to appreciate about the company while your working there.

Advice to Management

There is nothing anyone can tell the management team that will make them change their behavior. They are pretty set in their ways.

    Pros

    Top notch talent, fun people, industry recognition, laid back culture

    Cons

    Media is not appreciated or understood at AKQA. Creative rules the roost & gets all the recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Give recognition to all departments, not just creative. It takes more than just a copywriter and an art director to make advertising.
