Pros

Very generous towards employees, with a good training budget and socialising. Close enough to the centre of the internet (especially with Commission Junction) but without the huge number of layers like at Google and Microsoft. The highest levels of management really seem to know what they're doing - a good instinct for business, understanding the difference between a fad and a trend.

Cons

It does seem to be (d)evolving into a typical medium sized company - too many incompetent middle-managers more concerned about the size and location of their office than anything else. Also, too many decisions seem to be made in the 'boys network' (in the pub, or outside smoking).

Advice to Management

Get rid of all the middle-managers, cut down on the expensive luxuries and don't try to force a creative environment.

    Pros

    Gute Work-Life-Balance, freies Arbeiten. Entspannte Arbeitsatmosphäre.
    Interessante Kunden und Technologie

    Cons

    Während meiner Zeit dort gab es kein lokales deutsches Management, das Interessen gegenüber UK oder USA durchgesetzt hat. Sehr abhängig von UK

    Pros

    Conversant is boning up on the technical side even more rapidly than they were before. And it's a good thing as we continue with a target on our back, leaders in the digital display media place

    Cons

    You pay for the technology/platform. Our premium product comes with a premium price tag.
