I have been working at Auto Trader UK full-time for less than a year
- Excellent Management Style - Truly live the values - Office Location - Loyalty - They look after their people I've only been with AT for 6 months now and honestly, at nearly 40 years old,... I have found a job I can see myself retiring in. The management, at all levels, are approachable and I have never been made to feel like I'm putting people out. The company values are not just posters on the walls, they are lived! 3 weeks into my employment with AT we went in to lockdown, a traumatic time for most employees in the UK, especially for those who hadn't been with their company prior to the Government deadline of 29th February. I was well looked after and re-assured at every step that my job was safe. Approximately 3 weeks later we were put on furlough and again the same support and re-assurance continued. Now that we're working from home the company have recognised that people's mental and physical health can be impacted by the situation, they have done everything in their power to minimise the risk to us.
If I'm being nit-picky I would say the recruitment process is too long so prepare yourself for a 8-12 week process. Now that I am in the business though I can understand why, anyone willing to wait... that long is showing they are prepared to commit to the company.

I worked at Unique Influence full-time for more than a year
I was personally very successful at this job for an extended period of time, and pursued the help of intelligent people within the company to win new business whenever possible. Those smart people... are some of my best friends.
Everything that isn't included in the "Pros" section. UI has been sucking wind from a business perspective and has operated as a rudderless agency for at least 2.5 years now. I can't speak to how... things worked before my tenure, but I was shocked by the amount of micromanagement, followed by lack of leadership and overall negativity on a daily basis. I came from from, and continue to work with, digital/social agencies and platforms who face similar growth challenges. Most were and are still able to operate effectively and develop their most talented people. UI stands as the most toxic work environment and most ineffective leadership "team" I've ever encountered. Ryan Pitylak and Chantal Pittman will continue to rely on the glad-handing Yes Men who have helped them build their volatile business. While this would be a sound strategy if it was a successful, growing company, they will never actually improve their client relationships, retention or impressions. Because of this, they will face endless client and employee attrition today, tomorrow, for as long as they choose to be involved in this failing business.
