Pros

Hard-working, talent but under-appreciated rank and file employees who try to succeed in spite of complete lack of vision at top levels.

Cons

Senior management is one of the worst in the business. The executive level is incompetent, arrogant and disconnected.

Wall Street should be asking if it are getting its money's worth with the current leadership team in place.

Advice to Management

Quit and let someone who is competent do your job for you.

    I have been working at Landor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Once Upon A Time ... it was the people, the talent, the creative energy. Can't say any of that exists anymore. It's a mass exodus (voluntary & involuntary).

    Cons

    Complete lack of trust in Senior Mgmt to have any true business sense or forward-thinking, strategic ability to manage the business. So addicted to P&G that they can't think outside the box. They lost the only Business Development Director who could bring in non-P&G work, and they didn't even blink. Once a great culture thriving under the reputation of Walter Landor is now a shell of the company he inspired. Oh, and they could care less about their employees ... easily found (not any more) and easily discarded (more common lately)

    Advice to Management

    Time to look at replacing the 'leaders' in the organization who are bringing it down. Laying off junior/senior level staff may save you a few pennies when the financials are bad, but you've done yourself more harm than good. Those were the folks who actually performed & did the actual work (vs. those with offices who do NOTHING).

    I worked at Landor full-time

    Pros

    The people make the place. The brand attracts brilliant talent and produce award winning work. Great client opportunities. You get to work on the biggest brands.

    Cons

    Does not nurture talent. People don't get promoted. No mobility up or sideways.

    Advice to Management

    HR doesn't really do much for the employees. Need to keep your talent happy or they will eventually jump ship.
