    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great people, career opportunities, fruit once a week, social events, Xmas parties, very sociable crowd, young full of fresh ideas, training and development is good, few very skilled people managers

    Cons

    Below market rates, contributes to staff attrition, few areas understaffed and overworked. Some managers not experienced enough to lead teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a clear path to promote the leaders of tomorrow, reward individuals who have added value. Introduce cross departmental workshops to create synergy and knowledge transfer between teams.

    Pros

    Great to have on your CV
    Used to be a lot of Pro's but not since DHL have taken control. I have watched this company grow and was respected for the work it did, but now we are losing more pitches and accounts then we are winning.

    Cons

    No Training
    No career path
    No leadership from senior management
    Work you hard for little reward
    No overtime

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your staff as numbers on a balance sheet
    Listen to your staff
    Wake up to sending work out to low cost hubs who do not understand the culture of the company all for the sake of improving the balance sheet so that the faceless share holders get their premiums

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

    Pros

    Good office location, some decent knowledgeable people, albeit downtrodden.

    Cons

    No perks, no training. Boring work with no chance of promotion or progression as management do not see individuals' skills or experience. Many layers of management, some of which no one has any idea what they do. With more and more work being moved overseas to ill-equipped studios, the future looks bleak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, offer training and a career path.

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time (less than an 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 (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.

    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

    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

    Start noticing your staff before they leave

    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.
