Disapproves of CEO

Pros

There are opportunities, if you're lucky you'll be awarded access to them.
There are extremely talented people at your disposal. Most of them very busy but they're all a great bunch.
AKQA has a very good portfolio, definitely one to have on your resume.

Cons

Easy to hit the ceiling in terms of carreer progression as it doesn't go very far in the Technology dept.

Advice to Management

Give people that you say 'shine' more opportunities to 'shine'. It's difficult to outperform your competition if you're consistently handed something that needs fixing, rather than being allowed to play with the toys.
