ProsOn the whole the people are great, hard working & show passion for what they do. As a company, the brands are well established & prominent which looks good on your CV, it's fast moving which keeps things fresh & occasionally you can spot a celebrity on the office!

ConsAlthough it's fast moving, the company lacks ambition sometimes in what it does. It lacks drive, direction & communication from above in a very competitive market.

Advice to Senior ManagementMy advice would be to listen & trust what your skilled & experienced employees are telling you
