What Employees Say
I have been working at AKQA full-time for more than 3 years
AKQA has an abundance of benefits for its employees and i feel very fortunate to have access to these. I find the new leadership resilient. Their honesty, integrity, empowerment, vision, and... transparency is uplifting. It's energising for the MD to always involve the team and share credit and recognition. They definitely reignited my inspiration by rolling their sleeves up and getting stuck in - thank you all for not just managing but importantly leading us!!
Don't really have anything bad to say - I really respect the changes that have taken place recently.
Advice to Management
Some don't like change but in an ever-changing world it's inevitable and the only way we succeed is to continue moving forward - the recent transparency and honesty we've had this year have been... uplifting and hope we don't lose it!
I worked at FlexMR full-time for less than a year
Working as a part of a remote development team, our once monthly visits to the office were always great. We were always made to feel very welcome by the rest of the team, especially as there were... always biscuits, which as any developer will tell you is a great way to keep us sweet, pun intended. On a more serious note, the entire management structure is fantastic and you could not ask to work for nicer people, who really care about their staff. They certainly work and play hard and have a personality! Not something you often find in senior management. Our development line manager is a top guy. He's very knowledgeable and always had time for his team. Staff days out, almost, became a monthly occurrence during my time there, which is tantamount to how much appreciation management put into the effort by the wider team. Their successes were certainly valued and rewarded, unlike anywhere I've ever worked. It was obvious that careful consideration had been given to their choice of employees. All the teams are full of great people and being part of such a great development team was fantastic. It so rare to work somewhere where no one has an ego, which a lot of developers seem to think makes them better. You could not work with a better team. The management also have a lot of team meetings, which I always found very useful, it helped to keep everyone focused on company goals and helped to foster a great team spirit.
As people have mentioned, the parking could sometimes be an issue. Also it would get very hot upstairs on our monthly visits, that said, management did try to help with that by providing fans for us.

Don't change, you were great to work for.
