    Pros

    Fun personalities and culture. Portfolio building projects.

    Cons

    Asking for help isn't heard. Long term Dutch employees will always be favored.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take a talented hardworking team for granted and give them more than a party.

    Pros

    MediaMonks' projects are amazing opportunities to work with a large team of incredibly talented production people. The integrated approach (almost no freelancers) brings together so many different skill sets. The management is very no-nonsense and internationally minded, which is great if you have international ambitions. If you prove yourself, the sky is the limit. Not a boring moment. Great culture and a lot of...

    Cons

    It is hard work and a lot of hours if you want to do well. Challenging and thus stressful. This industry is ever changing. Very fast pasted. People are not going to hold your hand.

    Advice to Management

    More attention to evaluations. Sell less but more targetted.

    Pros

    Very fun company culture, lot's of parties to go to and friends to be made. World class clients with very exciting projects.

    Cons

    With great clients and great projects comes great stress and long hours when needed. Surrounded by hard working dedicated employees but it can be intense and exhausting at times.

    Advice to Management

    Career progression plans and more frequent employee review would be beneficial. With the pace of the work it can feel like you're a robot in a factory at times.

    I have been working at MediaMonks full-time

    Pros

    - amazing group of clients - kick ass work - great parties - great culture, colleagues, opportunity to work in other offices - great lunch and food

    Cons

    Yes, you need to work hard. But that allows you to work for global brands and agencies. You notice that they're growing really fast, and have some growing pains but they are working really hard to get everything in place, and get the processes and structure to keep on growing. I've worked at multiple agencies, but the drive for quality and client-satisfaction is insane(ly positive)

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing, but not too fast. Love your people as much as you love clients and awards, and you'll be at "world domination" stage really soon!1!

    Pros

    - Awesome colleagues - Amazing lunch - Company culture!

    Cons

    - Internal communication is very bad. Big announcements are shared, but a lot of important information is not or badly communicated. - Not all projects are that exciting anymore, a lot of boring stuff. - Learning and development is on the job and you have to do it yourself, it's not coming from the company.

    Advice to Management

    - Don't lose your reputation of making cool stuff - Have a clear vision and communicate it - More holidays, 22 per year is way too low - More guidance to team leads

    Pros

    Great clients, amazing & talented coworkers, free beer

    Cons

    This is a white dutch centric org. If you're not a dutch man, forget about moving up. There are two type of citizens dutch and non-dutch, and you can forget about your job if you raise the issue with upper management. Long hours are expected but not necessarily rewarded, specially if (surprise, surprise) you're not dutch.

    Advice to Management

    Foster your talent a little bit more. You can actually fin real gems outside the Netherlands. Stop placing divas as leads who do more talking than actual work.
