    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Experience dealing with a lot of incoming work on a constant basis. Developing good organizational skills as well as learning to manage huge amounts of work.

    Cons

    Not much room for new skill learning. Work is far too busy to allow for any room for training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At times the job can consume the employee, needing to work late beyond the desired hours. Incentives should be provided for workers to be happy to work late hours. Salary rise, social activities, training, etc.

    Once a great company with great leadership. A pull together succeed together ethos. Now a failing disaster badly led.

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Some of the old school Tag guys are still around and are worth learning from.

    Cons

    completely inadequate leaders that do not understand what the companies success was built upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look back at three years and try to emulate the management style. Stop being dishonest with the people that make the company work. Properly compensate the people that make the company work.

    I worked at Tag Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's a well known company and a good starting point for juniors.
    Apart from that i can't actually think of any.

    Cons

    Some people have to work very hard, whilst some people have it easy street. It used to be set hours with voluntary paid overtime. A lot of people now feel pressured to do overtime for the minimum rate.
    It feels like a different company after being taken over by Williams & Lea in 2012.
    You used to feel like you had a future there and many people would work until retirement. Every year more and more redundancies as they let go of good people and ship work to their 'Overseas Hubs'. I wonder what the future is for employees now but i have lost all confidence and I'm sure moral is at an all time low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your people, because your losing your best people.

    Really nice people and office culture
    Fantastic Xmas party

    Cons

    It's a mess and management don't do anything about it rather than agreeing that it's a mess.....hopeless
    No career path, no promotions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Good people, highly ambitious business, leverage of DPDHL supply chain yet to be unlocked

    Cons

    Takes a while to gain backing from senior business directors, sometimes slow in making decisions especially when involving changes to their processes. Still some time before real benefit is seen from unlocking DPDHL Supply chain capabilities

    Pros

    Unique proposition that is not seen anywhere in the industry.
    I can see the future being very good if we start working together and realise the vision.

    Cons

    Senior management from parent company that actually miss the finite difference of who we are and we do what we do.

    Pros

    great place to start

    Cons

    No perks and long hours. There seems to be some discrimination to women and working mothers. I have seen people being bullied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to their staff.

    Sinking in the UK, rising in India - employees always fearing redundancy as the work and their jobs get shipped to India

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Well, its a job and you get paid at the end of the month, that's about as positive as I can be. It's also in a pleasant part of London and not too bad to get to. Good for experience until something better comes along.

    Cons

    Certainly more cons than pros. Wages average, rises hard to come by unless you are one of the upper echelons of the company! Very few benefits unless you work for the Williams Lea side of things, you can be doing the same job in the same office, one person works for Tag the other for WL, the WL person may have different hours and wages (better). A benefits booklet was sent round...oh no, not for Tag employees, only WL. There is a constant fear of redundancy as jobs and work gets shipped to India, how many clients realise their work is being produced in India is anyone's guess.
    Training is OK if you are a new starter, plenty to be taught before they leave for greener pastures.
    With Tag's previous owner, you felt part of the company, now, you are just a number waiting to be deleted without a thought.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start listening to the people who actually have to make your fortunes, not just the figures on your screens.
    Equalise the benefits between the Tag and WL employees. Have a serious rethink about shipping the work to hubs in India and the USA, may save you plenty of money now, but when you lose those clients because of those hubs...!

    I worked at Tag Worldwide full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There really are no pros to working here. You may be busy, you might gain some experience but whether it is of value elsewhere I would doubt.

    Cons

    You are nothing more than a number, just a resource to be replaced by cheaper labour in India at the earliest opportunity. There is absolutely no career development or anything resembling corporate training. Your efforts will not be rewarded nor will you be thanked for going the extra mile. Williams Lea have turned what was an acceptable (not good) company to work for into a disastrous place to work. Round after round of redundancies after the work is pushed to India leave staff demotivated, undervalued and simply either waiting for an abysmal redundancy package or looking for other work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There's nothing anyone could say. You've never listened to your employees before.
