I have been working at AKQA full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Smart talented people. Interesting clients. New culture and wellness has added more workout classes, breakfast Monday, blue bottle cart on wed.

Cons

They work people until they break and want to leave. Lots of long long nights. no dogs in new office. management is not the worst just needs improvement and guidance. High turnover.

Advice to Management

Appreciate present employees vs. trying to win back old employees. Disorganized.
