I have been working at 360i full-time for more than a year
Having worked at some of the biggest digital agencies in London i've come to understand the faults and the benefits of them all and I can safely say that 360i is one of the best.

Advice to Management
Continue to invest in fostering talent from within the agency
I worked at Blue Fountain Media full-time for more than a year
- Several positive, collaborative, and caring colleagues. - An opportunity to work with many different clients and have ownership over your work. - You get to see your work go live. - Can be... useful as a stepping stone.
There were no growth opportunities within the company for designers. And, the type of work that came in was more or less lacking in variety. In my time there, I increasingly felt a lack of... organization, stability, and vision hamper our competitiveness and growth. - Overall, the company struggles to implement current industry standards. - It also became clear that the growth of the creative team and its individual members was not a priority. - I know several current and former colleagues who were underpaid, and/or who increasingly felt their skills and experience were not valued (myself included). - Being acquired by Pactera has contributed to an overall uncertainty about the direction of the company. - Hiring is an area that really needs improvement. And the office itself is not a comfortable or pleasant environment.
Advice to Management
Support creative innovation by funding trips to conferences, talks, workshops, and trainings. Sponsor quarterly team outings to allow time for bonding between co-workers. If you do not offer... competitive salaries, you will continue to pay the high price of losing your valuable human capital. Employees are an asset not an expense. Revamp how you show appreciation to employees for good work. And, bring warmth and comfort to the office space with softer/natural lighting, better furniture, and plants.
