    I genuinely enjoy working here. Some of the kindest people I've met yet in agency life -- with sensible heads and genuine respect for work/life balance.

    We could do a better job defining who we are, and what we are about both internally and externally.

    Pros

    I've never met another group of people with whom I generally enjoyed seeing everyday. Most everybody works hard and still has a sense of humor to go along with it.

    Cons

    It really depends on your team to determine what kind of experience you have, which can be a pro for some people and a con for others.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better idea of what you really want this company to be

    Pros

    Quite small company and everyone is friendly so you do get to know people from different departments easily.
    If you're a trainee accountant, they offer to fund some of your study.
    Good place to get foot in the door of marketing industry.

    Cons

    If you're a trainee accountant, they do not pay for all of your study.
    Career progression is limited within finance team, cannot speak for other departments.
    Not the most competitive salaries once you pass entry level, but great for first foot in the door.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with competitive salaries.

    I worked at The Marketing Store Worldwide (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1. very data-driven. if you are interested in both data science and digital media, this company will be a good choice.
    2. people here are very friendly and helpful. The work environment is relaxing.
    3. the best part, on 14th floor, you will see minions and other cute cartoon characters in every corner.

    Cons

    the internal management system is sort of messy. sometimes, two groups of people would get the same conference room at the same time.
    A McDonald-oriented company. if you are in charge of other clients, maybe you won't get enough supports and resources.

    Advice to Management

    please optimize the management system, which will increase the productivity for all people.
