    Super talented people

    Designer (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsFantastic people when I was there - friends for life.

    ConsCompany is changing now it's been bought out by isobar

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind out what kind of agency you are now.

    Very active social life, but totally unorganised as a company

    Project Manager (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsIt was really fun in regards to the social life; lots of very messy drinks and made loads of friends

    You don't have to work that hard - if you're not stupid, the work is relatively simple

    Some really nice people

    ConsManagement is ridiculous - a whole new team have been shipped in from AKQA which would be great, but Glue doesn't have AKQA's infrastructure - its not working

    No real strategic direction - a lot of the work felt like it was being done just to be done. Not innovative.

    If you are sharp mentally - Glue may be frustrating for you. Harsh truth is that you could count the number of great minds on two hands....

    Noncompetitive salary

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeave. Failing that - listen to your staff but ACTUALLY listen. Its no secret that there is at least one leaving party a week. That is not a coincidence. Stop with the high profile, expensive hires and concentrate on investing in the staff you have already.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    horrific

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsYou can clock out at 5.30 and go home at 4 on a friday. They have inherited some big brands (yet they aren't adventurous brands)

    ConsThe agency seems to think they are creative, produce good work, and intelligent. All together this couldn't be further from the truth. Almost no one at Glue understands the process from brief through to delivery, so you get groups of people running around aimlessly and frantically. The creative department are terrible, with no idea of what can be delivered digitally. The morale is through the floor. New senior management have taken a sinking ship, and added a few rocks in there for fun - it is a disaster. I am more than happy to have departed Glue.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhere to start? No one on the new exec team has made a positive impact on the agency - people on the ground do not respect you. Look at the level of quality of your staff and be ashamed - do something about it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Small and Mighty

    Writer (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsThe people and the work. It's a friendly place full of enthusiastic employees

    Consit's a small shop without some of the luxuries of big places. Also budgets aren't as massive as some people will be used to.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work. You've got something special going. Keep your foot on the accelerator.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Disappointing - Working with amatuers

    Consultant Perhaps ? (Former Employee)

    ProsLack of challenging work
    Poor treatment of external consultants - dump them in and chew them out if they don't measure up, despite the work being poorly scoped

    ConsLack of challenging work - you are treated like a third rate, expendable employee
    Very poor treatment of external consultants - dump them in and chew them out if they don't measure up, despite the work being poorly scoped. Done to repeated consultants who come in externally. Very poor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe more organised in managing your client engagements so you don't mess around your external partners - makes you look like amateurs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
