I have been working at AKQA full-time (more than a year)Pros
Good work life balance and opportunities for career progression around the world. Every day a new opportunity surfaces so feels dynamic. Employees believe in the vision to create the best work of their careers. Lots of social events to get to know people. Culture feels like a close family where people co-operating to benefit the whole.Cons
Every now and then need to work the odd evening or weekend, but to be expected in an agency that has multinational clients on different timezones.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at AKQA in August 2013.Interview Details
Professional, relatively fast (they needed a quick hire) one phone and two face-to-face interviews. A variety of topics, no particularly hard questions. Final interviews with more senior staff were relatively blunt, but to the point. I didn't tick all their boxes, but ticked enough to get an offer.
Different interviews covered different material, initial phone interview was very easy, just a chat and very basic technical details. Second interview was more related to project management and software development. Final interview more on managing process and people, and more advanced aspects of the SDLC.Interview Questions
