Pros

Working at Kairos is both challenging but also very rewarding. It is a fast paced and dynamic organisation at the cutting edge of Media production using all the latest channels and methods. You will gain a wealth of experience and work with knowledgeable and capable people. The nature of the work does sometimes demand that you go the extra mile to deliver but you will learn a lot in the process. The people and management at Kairos are a great team with huge ambition. If you want to make a huge jump in your career experience then this is the place to be.

Cons

The nature of the work does inevitably places demands on everyone. Clients expect results and in very specific timescales. This does mean you have to deliver and so working in this way does challenge everyone.

Advice to Management

Keep developing the structure of the business to ensure support and progression at all levels. Huge progress has been made recently in this area, keep it up.

Pros

If you like to goof around and drink and not get any training or actual work done then this is the place for you.

Cons

Management only cares about making a profit and does not care about the clients. Work environment is very similar to a frat house - playing video games, drinking, gossiping instead of getting actual work done. Work environment is very dirty. Very little to no trainings and if there are they’re not good. Management does not care about its employee’s as multiple people left due to mental health issues, etc. Co workers have left in the middle of the day due to having a break down. Hours are long because no one takes work seriously to get it done in time. A lot of RFPs coming in but can never close them. Management will make false promises to you. Management doesn’t take ownership for their mistakes.

Advice to Management

If a start up business fails it’s on management and management alone.

Very little to no trainings and if there are they’re not good.

Pros

I’ve never worked with a more passionate team. There’s a drive and determination you just wish you could bottle. Sometimes mistakes get made but there’s a real sense of taking learnings and moving on which makes it a much more comfortable environment for innovation. Even though the agency is going through the growing pains of fast growth, it’s doing a really great job of being m balanced when it comes to its people and services. It’s clear the business is investing a lot into the teams and really emphasising the importance of team happiness and satisfaction. There are fantastic opportunities to learn watching the group. You’ll constantly be asked questions that you may not know the answers too but then guided to find the solution. If you enjoy being outside of the comfort zone when it comes to what you do/don’t know then Kairos is great.

Cons

The team is very busy a lot of the time, which is understandable based on how quickly our industry is growing. However it’s good to know is not accepted as a norm within the Group, it’s very clear the business puts a strong focus on work/life balance but I can see that it’s quite difficult to deliver against sometimes. The agency suffers from a lack of diversity, albeit being acknowledged and something the group is working towards changing. It’s regularly discussed and you can tell there’s clearly a passion about helping remedy this. Due to how busy the teams are there’s not a strong focus on training day to day, this has meant that sometimes people aren’t set up to deal with the challenges they face. Luckily the teams are incredibly supportive of each other, there’s definitely a “we’re in this together” mentality, which is great to know when it gets challenging.

Advice to Management

Continue to listen to and invest in your teams. Embrace the senior leaders coming into the group and know where to focus the energy at a time where everything seems like a priority. Continue to put emphasis on growth of resource, the teams need more support and it’s great to see the lengths you are going too to help them get it.

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..

Serve lack of training for new employees which ultimately leads to being fired soon after.
