    Pros

    - Good focus on innovation and best practice.
    - Great office fit-out/vibe
    - Awesome work / life balance
    - Great competency in Agile practices
    - Excellent recent track record on delivering CX and large projects

    Cons

    - Lack of very large retainers make it hard work to deliver to budget every month
    - Location of office (St Kilda Rd)
    - The fact that there's no one "sitting on the bench", makes it extremely busy all the time

    Advice to Management

    There's a couple of legacy employees who shouldn't be there any longer (Due to performance)

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Next Digital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    convenient location, some great people, and if you are looking to work long hours it's perfect.

    Cons

    expect to work really hard and carry lazy people who take credit for your work. It is old fashioned and deluded with no vision. Worst agency I have been to - little talent, high staff turnover, terrible work culture, worst managers, no fun.

    Advice to Management

    focus on your talented few rather than the loyal and lazy.

  5. "Work hard, but good work is recognised"

    I worked at Next Digital full-time

    Pros

    They provides good opportunities for people to grow skills and responsibilities who want to take them, and allow you to advance your skills and move up the chain within the company. Generally a relaxed office environment and they are reasonably flexible for employee times.

    Cons

    Salaries are generally not great, and you do have to work hard to prove yourself. But how else would you prove yourself without working hard? As it is an agency there will be long days.

    Pros

    - The largest (if not the largest) digital marketing and solutions agencies in Australia
    - Good friendly people working together

    Cons

    - Pricing model for office locations needs to be revised
    - Poor pay compared to other agencies

    Advice to Management

    Open the communication channels, offer better pay incentives or people will start walking

    Pros

    The people working there are great. The office is quite nice.

    Cons

    There is usually a big change over - people leave the company after working there for a short while...and half the people there aren't happy about working there. The pay is very bad. You are expected to work long hours without compensation. my supervisor is a workaholic, but he shouldn't expect his staff to work like he does.
    note also that when i worked there the company was under a different name.

    Advice to Management

    To treat their staff better (in terms of compensation).
