    Great Products, Great People

    Supervisor (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsGreat People, Brands and Office Location. Massive company wide restructuring bodes well for the future and has encouraged new ideas.

    ConsOccasional poor communication. Reorganisation has lost a lot of talent and experience. General feeling is that it will be tough in the short term.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication, Communication, Communication

    Some extremely clique-y staff members

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat exposure into the industry - this is be expected as it is one of the industry leaders. The adequate compensation package and other benefits such as work/life balance, perks etc definitely help to foster an environment of creativity.

    ConsOne of the worst examples of positive office culture. Extremely clique-y - this was particularly evident in the departments with less of an international remit.

    Company is what you make of it - as always.

    (Former Employee) London, England

    Pros*Good colleagues and a largely positive working environment. No overt aggressiveness or blame-culture.
    *Work-life balance was good on the whole but depended a lot on the area and work.
    *Good central location in London
    *Offered some good-ish development training

    Cons*Decision-makers tended not to know/grasp properly what they were doing.
    * Not enough checks and balances.
    *A chronic make -do-and-mend approach despite serious structural changes/expansion
    *Pay and promotion not great
    *Employees tended to stay on and become “comfortable”, which brought problems

    Advice to Senior ManagementRefine focus and adequately update the company to reflect the world it's operating in. The company is going through a restructure, so things may change/changing in the future.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Comfortable and cheap

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsLaid back, comfortable, not very corporate at all, great community and place to work.

    ConsPays little compared to most private media companies, some people who thrive on pressure won't like the laid back atmosphere. The perks for a media company are quite unsubstantial.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvestment in people helps in the long run.

    A good first job as a fresh graduate

    PR Coordinator (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsA good first job as a fresh graduate. Gained solid experience from a good surrounding of professionals. The american nature of the business promoted an industrious culture.

    ConsThis was a good first job for me, not really any cons - but then wasn't there long enough due to fixed term contract arrangement.

    Vivid environment and friendly people.

    Director (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsGlobal company with credit in the business. All sorts of internal opportunities to change rolls from time to time. Very good team work.

    ConsToo slow to make things move. Always inform people the on the last day of renewing contract or not, which is not very nice.

    Great place to work with an excellent work life balance.

    Research Assistant (Current Employee) London, England

    ProsThe people are easy going but professional and hard working. You are given a lot of resposibility compared with other companies and this responsibility can grow if you do well very quickly.

    ConsSometimes the work can be tedious but if you prove you can do well then they give you more interesting work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTo make sure that the staff are constantly busy, also to make sure that the work differs enough to remain interesting.

    Account Executive (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsGreat growth opportunities early in career, fair compensation and benefits. Good people

    ConsManagement is VERY top-heavy. Sometimes move slower than the industry due to its size

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
