    Morning fellow canados. My portfolio is pretty real estate-heavy and so I foresee quite a bit of resistance in findinb work in a run-of-the-mill creative agency once I arrive at Pearson in six months. Can the people of the Great North spare a few names with a focus on the property market that I can get my foot in?

      Pros

      Leaders who listen and want your involvement, plenty of opportunity to evolve & create, great development, focused and mindful of DE&I and wellbeing

      Cons

      Not so much a con, but something to be conscious of: there's a lot to do to shape our quick growth so one needs to ensure workload remains realistic and prioritise accordingly

      Pros

      Colleagues are hardworking, friendly, and experienced. Managers check in often (in a good way, without micromanaging.)

      Cons

      Still working through speed bumps from an overhaul of internal systems last year. Product technology is constantly changing.

      Pros

      Talented and competent leadership, from executive level down to people managers.

      Cons

      The nature of the business creates a lot of pressure. There isn't room for things to be late or wrong. That's not a bad thing, but I think it means you need to be comfortable with the demands imposed.
