Does Assembly offer housing assistance?

Pros

- Good client roster with some big brands on there - Great place to start and grow (for a bit) as a grad/newbie into digital as there is a lot of training available. The agency knows what works and how to teach it well, hence why it looks good on your CV - Regular socials, when I worked there these were quarterly - Decent employee perks - free food and drinks (offset the poor pay somewhat) - Rarely had to work late

Cons

- Salary as a new starter is poor and below industry average. Although the benefits outweigh this slightly (and minimise some outgoings), it would be very hard to live in London (with no help) on the salary. I find it odd that it was compulsory to donate to the FPMX charity to take part in socials when the company couldn't even pay grads the London living wage. - HR have no backbone and will bend over backwards to protect management, even when they've stepped completely out of line. There are some interesting characters (see bullying reviews) who will always be protected by HR because they're part of their clique and HR don't want to stick their necks out. - Senior management and client services are completely out of touch with the teams and will overpromise when there is little/no resource or don't understand what is being asked of them by clients. - There is no support for more junior management. You can be given a grad to manage within your first year but are not given any guidance. Apart from those who are a natural at management, there are a lot of poor people managers within the company due to this. - Apart from your first promotion after 6 months, all promotions afterwards are down to whether you're 'in' with senior management. Senior management will move goal posts to promotion further and further away to stall it. I saw many people held back who shouldn't have been (and left as a result) but also people who were not ready to be promoted but were because they played Fifa with senior managers.

Advice to Management

Listen to the reviews you've been given about senior management/bullying and pay. FPMX has some great people in it and is a perfect place to start your career it's just a shame it's not one to stick around for.
