    I have been working at Media Contacts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Young, fun, and talented group. There is a lot of opportunity for growth. The company is flexible and open to ideas from all.

    Cons

    As with all agencies, hours can be long. Starting out, salaries are general on the low end, but if you prove yourself you will be rewarded.

    I have been working at Media Contacts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Grown up environment where everyone is treated as an adult and with trust, the best commission structure in London, salary reviews and appraisals twice a year, excellent benefits package, intelligent colleagues, management genuinely care that you are as happy outside of work as at work, loyal clients and candidates, newly refurbished offices, great work/life balance.

    Cons

    It's such an easy going environment that you need to be naturally driven to succeed - no one will micro manage or stand over you with a stick, so it's not the place for people who don't have a genuine desire and drive to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing.
