Terrific company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Washington, DC (US)

I have been working at AKQA full-time

ProsSmart teams, high-profile projects, strong management practices. Relaxed environment, family-friendly. Great exposure to variety of technologies and tools. Lots of interesting work going on.

ConsSome projects get pretty massive, which can get tiring creatively. Inter office communication/sharing could be better. Need more interaction between tech and design.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate more opportunities for departments to interact. Per-project bonuses would be good, too.
