Pros

I have been at Kairos long enough to see it grow and develop. One of the most notable areas I've seen this has been it's culture and the employees that come to work here. The culture is very fun, energetic and hard working. The company is full of young and ambitious people who all share similar interests and most consider their colleagues good friends. Other pros include: - You get to work with cool clients in a exciting and growing industry - There are excellent career growth opportunities if you work hard and show commitment to Kairos - You can get a lot of responsibility early on which helps you grow fast and learn a LOT - It's a growing company with an open mind, so if you think there are better ways things can be done then test your hypothesis and if it works then management are usually open to rolling it out - Although staff numbers are growing by the day, it's still a good size that you know most people working there and feel valued - Very understanding approach to remote work considering COVID - In general the social side to the agency is amazing. It really is like working with a group of friends. The socials are great fun.

Cons

- The salary is not very high. However, if you stay there and go through promotions this does improve. - It can be hard work sometimes and long hours. But in general, this has improved and work life balance is much better than it used to be. - Training is not what you would get at a FTSE 100 company, but they are focusing a lot more on this and it's improving. The responsibility you get and career growth opportunities often make up for this as well.

Pros

Lively atmosphere with young, energetic and success seeking employees who share similar interests in all aspects of life. Attentive HR/PA that has employees interest at the top their priority list, organizing social activities, in-house events, providing mental health relief and acknowledging achievements of those thriving within the business. Overall, a very social and person friendly agency.

Cons

Senior Management is very disjointed, childish and serious lack of emotional empathy for those struggling in the business. Overtime is ALWAYS expected but never rewarded. Serve lack of training for new employees which ultimately leads to being fired soon after. The sheer volume of staff turn over had created an intense atmosphere which made working life unbearable for everyone. Directors are fueled by their ever growing ego which makes it hard to have constructive conversations about business improvement, employees well-being and general day to day management. In summary, Directors turn a blind eye to employee feelings, mental stress and frustrations. No real opportunities are provided for those looking to develop and accelerate their career. During my time at Kairos, all positions open were offered to external candidates rather than internally.. leading to lack of motivation in a handful of employees.

Advice to Management

Kairos has potential to become great..

No real opportunities are provided for those looking to develop and accelerate their career.

Pros

A highly meritocratic business that rewards employees with fast career progression for high performing staff. Fantastic range of clients and varied areas of business mean you are always challenged with new and exciting projects within gaming, fin-tech, fashion and more. A vibrant and exciting working environment that thrives off creativity, and collaboration. Very supportive of the more flexible approach to working during the recent pandemic.

Cons

Fast paced working environment that may not suit all employees.

Pros

- Opportunity to work with some of the worlds biggest brands - Lot's of scope for personal growth and development - Management are responsive and extremely helpful - Directors are not faceless, they make themselves approachable and mingle with the teams - Plenty of opportunities to earn commission If you have an interest in the gaming industry this is the place to be.

Cons

- Sometimes long hours may be required to get the job done. But again, not necessarily a con, you don't mind putting in the extra hours when some of the projects are so cool.

Lot's of scope for personal growth and development
