Positive Outlook

I have been working at Williams Lea Tag full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Some great People at your level (whilst they're about!!)
Casual agency atmosphere.
The very few people that do know what they are doing here (You know who you are)
Graduate haven - That could be a con depending on how you look at it.
Opportunity to develop new skills quickly.
Looks good on the CV.

Cons

Based on what I've observed in my department and to some extent other teams:

Job titles typically don't match what you're role actually entails.
Sloppy processes (this is steadily improving)
Poor Training. (this is improving)
Inexperienced/trophy managers.
Way below market rate salary.
Overworking due to poor foresight/management.
Politics and Cliques.
Employee retention - Looks bad when you are attending department leaving do's every 2 weeks.
Career progression comes to those who are willing to stick around for the long haul 5+ years.

TAG do not promote internal Job opportunities!! - Management & HR would rather keep you where you are for their own needs rather than the needs of the business or your own.

TAG is divided into 2 groups:
Those that work at TAG for a max of 2-3 years, gain skills, experience and move on to where they want to be.
or
Those that slog it for the long haul get promoted all the way up the TAG family, get taken care of but ultimately forego any real ability to be able to find new employment down the line.

Advice to Management

-Find a new job for a few months, see how other businesses work then come back to TAG. Enlighten yourself because you've been here so long you don't know any better or know how to improve.

-Offering below market rate it's no wonder people leave so make the effort to value your subordinates hard work and experience and invest in them because in the long term you lose knowledge base and waste time/money training new people.
