Pros

3 weeks of vacation, good dental (since being bought out by Williams Lea), beer on Fridays...thats it.

Cons

Working at Tag is like working at MTV, no one is over 35...if they are they are senior managers and they will make your time there a miserable one. Working at Tag for almost three years I have gotten one review and only because i fought for it. The only chance of promotion at Tag is if your manager leaves - even then there is a very good chance you will just take on their responsibilities and not reap the benefits in your pay / title. My advice is to use Tag for what they can give you - a paycheck. Use your time there to look for a new job that will give you a step in the right direction; its bearable enough to stay until you find the right next move in your career - don't just leave because you hate it there and take another position that will be another dead end. Good Luck!

Advice to Management

Understand employees need a work / life balance or else they will resent the office. Fix CMD!! This is a terrible tool and one I am embarrassed to have to represent. Reward your employees with timely annual reviews - if you forget about them - they will forget about you!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is above what you would make doing the same work as a temp. If you are lucky, you can be stationed in an office with friendly, professional clients.

    Cons

    WL Senior management seem completely uninterested in their employees as anything other than bargaining chips with the client and a quick path to their own bonuses. Don't expect honesty, competence or ethics. Hourly employees that nominate management for the "Exceptional" award can expect to receive one or more awards in reciprocity; employees who spend all of their time working can expect to take on new extra chores with no gratitude, raises or acknowledgment from management. If you are lucky enough to get a good manager, it is only a matter of time until he/she is overburdened and overworked until they break and get scapegoated out of the door, at which point the remaining management will blame all of their failures on the ex-manager.

    No matter how good the comments in your performance review are, you will get 3 stars and a very tiny raise. Management will tell you that you got a bigger raise than everyone else at your position but it won't be true. Expect to be bullied: "Do you LIKE your job?" etc etc. (I actually said "no, I don't" and didn't get fired or questioned on it. A good manager would have done something other than ignore my response, IMO.

    At WL communication is only a problem when it is attempted. So don't even try.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat experienced, skilled employees - especially those older than yourself- as if they were bumbling, lost children. A refresher course in basic spelling, grammar and email functions would go a long way towards making your correspondence look professional. Stop blaming everyone else for your failings. Give more than 2.5% raises to your "best" people.
