    I worked at Greenlight Digital full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent senior management team who are always accessible to staff from junior execs up to director level. Great approach to flexible working in a informal yet business like office environment. Breadth and depth of experience and expertise understandable from an agency that has been at the top table of digital marketing since the early 00's. Excellent training schemes and personal development programmes. Competitive...

    Cons

    As an independent and not part of a media giant there are inevitably less opportunities for promotion inter-company once you are at senior director level.

    Cons

    I can not think of any thing bad about Greenlight. But as at any other work place, there are times when things can get busy and a bit stressful, there are times when individuals can behave in a difficult way, there are times when some individuals are more involved into politics then work, but if your senior management is helpful and supportive you go through that difficult time. And it all depends on yourself that...

    Rare to find an agency that actively listens to ALL feedback and visibly tries to address ALL concerns. The transparency from top level down is great and creates an inclusive feeling for everyone rather than the usual need-to-know approach. The people are great here and the level of knowledge, experience, drive and support is a joy to work amongst. Great work environment and culture, with a constant eye on work...

    Pros

    Good holiday allowance - 25 days, plus the office is closed between Christmas and New Year Flexible Working - you can work 8-4.30, 8.30-5, 9-5.30, 9.30-6, or 10-6.30. Lots of different clients to work on, so no two days are ever the same. Beer o clock on a Friday Line manager is approachable, but doesn't sit over my shoulder. Little extras, such as snacks, drinks, yoga in the morning. Opportunities...

    Cons

    Some people with the word 'manager' in their title like to look down at people they perceive to be 'below' them. Not always enough support on big projects.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest asset here are the staff, so keep them happy. If people complain about someone, take it seriously - there's obviously a reason that they've complained in the first place, and it takes quite a lot to get to that stage. Keep being friendly, and keep the business non-hierarchical - it's a far nicer environment.
