Featured Review

Former Employee - Senior Strategist

I worked at AKQA full-time

Pros

Great briefs, super-smart team and the opportunity to create portfolio-worthy work.

Cons

Can be long hours during pitches but that's the norm in all agencies.

Current Employee - Account Director

I have been working at Mindshare full-time

Pros

Working from home is flexible, the team is driven, hardworking and the culture is exciting and fun. Beautiful offices in the center of London with a coffee bar, amazing views and lots of space. They... support working parents, flexi-working and early Friday finishes. Lots of support groups for ethnicity, women, parents, sexuality and disabilities.

Cons

There can be long working hours and like lots of big agencies people leave and move into other roles leaving gaps in teams.
