    Pros

    Adopts the work hard, play hard mantra where there are constantly events, activities and parties.

    Cons

    Would love to see management recognise and reward those who work hard. Senior management also need to find time to listen to the feedback from the staff but often staff are afraid to pass on constructive feedback.

    I worked at Ikon Communications (More than a year)

    Pros

    Ikon has a brilliant history and heritage and it has managed to keep much of its culture despite many years of upheaval and change. The people there are smart and genuine on the whole.

    Cons

    Media is going through a nasty wake up call as the media model breaks down. Ikon as the biggest local Australian Media Agency is feeling that pain more than anyone else - particularly in Sydney and Melbourne - as it does not have the protection of a global network to underpin the business. STW Group as the holding company is all over it like a rash.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing...the strategy to transform and integrate new services into the core media offering is right.

    I worked at Ikon Communications full-time

    Pros

    Without doubt once of the best office locations in Sydney - the view is outstanding
    Very qualified and experienced senior management
    Reward and recognise great work
    Good work/life balance
    Free yoga, breakfast and Friday drinks
    Healthy remuneration

    Cons

    Commute - despite the benefits of the view, it's not easy to get to work
    Top heavy - not enough mid and lower level staff to deal with the workload
    Lost - Ikon has had a tough 2 years of change and loss of clients. There's been many re-structures and they've now switched to a full-service model. While the market requires it, there needs to be some clear leadership and vision about where this is going.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly articulate to staff the values and vision. People need to have direction and know the meaning behind why they're doing something.
