    - Insane amount of talent in the teams - Great combination of technical expertise, creative and design teams, and strategic consulting - Working for A brand clients: Bol.com, Rayban, Belfius, ...

    High speed environment. You have to be up for the challenge, and have to be able to speak up for yourself.

    Advice to Management

    Get an office dog.

    Pros

    You can work for AA brands

    Cons

    Management asks you to deal with the clients like they are a bunch of donkeys ... just get the money out of their pockets, ... results are not important, only the $$$ is important at the end of the day ... 1 advice: do not work here, you will be frustrated after a while ...

    Advice to Management

    Please set the customer at the first place, not your bank account

    I worked at Wijs full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company knows how to attract a large group of talented people with high potential, so you will learn a lot from most of your colleagues. You also get a chance to work on high-visibility clients, even when you are very inexperienced. There will also be a chance to work on internal projects or non-client projects. After a few years, you will walk away having learned a ton.

    Cons

    The company is mostly run like a factory, where time is the only resource. Working harder only punishes the person working hard, because the next project is always ready to work on. Because project managers are valued by the profits they make, they will push the team members to finish tasks sooner rather than later, a lot of times resulting in a fetish with numbers rather than quality. Management seems to understand...

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront about the outlook for new people in the company. If you can’t give a raise, just say so. If you’re going to be open, be really open – everyone knows the numbers can be fabricated to support most stories. Either give focus by management or give people time/a budget to work on internal projects. Minimize the amount of simultaneously running internal projects.

    I worked at Wijs full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There's some great colleagues that will definitely teach you a trick or two, and a string of rather high-profile clients that will provide you with some challenging projects and exposure.

    Cons

    There's an all-encompassing focus on money and manipulations to get as much as possible out of employees as cheap as possible, which will burn out the enthousiasts that mean well.

    I have been working at Wijs

    Pros

    Onwaarschijnlijk sterke experts die continu kennis delen, waardoor je dagelijks groeit in jouw job. Zeer sterke dynamiek die drijft op talrijke initiatieven (innovation nights, hackathons, conferenties, award shows, soft-skills opleidingen, team feestjes, ...). Werken voor A klanten met complexe digitale vragen, waarbij je met een top team daar een antwoord mag op verzinnen én mag realiseren. Talrijke groeimogelijkheden,...

    Cons

    Geen plaats voor 9-to-5 mentaliteit. Als je echt gebeten bent door het vak, dan hoor je hier perfect thuis.

    Pros

    Sterke toekomstvisie op de digitale evolutie, haar impact op de maatschappij en de rol van communicatiebureau's daarbij. Als werknemer veel kansen om zelf mee te denken over diensten en manier van aanpakken. Het merendeel van de collega's zijn enthousiaste, gepassioneerde en getalenteerde mensen. Heerlijke werksfeer.

    Cons

    Er worden al te vaak conclusies getrokken op basis van geïnterpreteerde metingen: het lijkt rationeel aan de oppervlakte maar is zeer subjectief als je dieper kijkt. Als gevolg daarvan worden lange-termijn initiatieven opgeofferd of lang uitgesteld voor beperkte korte termijn voordelen. Alleen wie een lange adem heeft en er een uitdaging inziet om hier tegenin te gaan, zal frustratie kunnen vermijden.

    Advice to Management

    1. Investeer veel meer tijd en middelen in het uitbouwen van diensten en producten. De kennis en skills zijn er. Durf er volledig voor te gaan. 2. Focus nog meer op het aantrekken van klanten waarbij Wijs haar rol optimaal kan opnemen. De verkopers zullen hiervoor anders moeten gaan denken en handelen. 3. Ondersteun meer in het finaliseren van gestarte initiatieven. Laat die toch niet doodbloeden, zonde van de tijd...
