Does Kairos Group offer massages?

Pros

A great CV entry, Kairos are willing to take on people with little to no industry knowledge. Being thrown into the deep end has ultimately been a positive experience, especially if you are a fresh graduate or if this is your first real career job. You do get the chance to work with some big clients which is always a plus. The social life is good, after work drinks and PS4's in the office are a bonus, but ultimately they do not pay the bills and pave way for career progression!

Cons

A very much sink or swim culture. You are expected to stay behind late everyday, and frowned upon if you are one of the first few to leave the office. The directors seem to completely forget that people may have long commutes everyday. Overtime pay is non-existent, and the directors are constantly trying to cut costs in this way. People would much rather get paid for overtime rather than a free beer! The trouble is that there are too many graduates and interns being hired at rapid rates on low pay, with little industry knowledge. Commission is an absolute joke, and never paid out. Undercutting staff and hiring too many people with barely any industry knowledge will always result in disastrous campaigns and ultimately a toxic culture. Clear favourites in the company, which never helps - they seem to think that staying behind an extra hour means you deliver better work.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees with the respect they deserve.

What kind of career opportunities exist at Kairos Group?

Pros

- Like others, I was given an amazing opportunity by the directors when I had little experience, and was accepted into a junior role that allowed me to gain the industry knowledge & experience required to progress incredibly quickly. - Despite growing exponentially since I joined almost two years ago, the huge scope for very fast personal growth at Kairos is still true today. If you excel in your role, you will be rewarded and recognised for it. -From the high profile and often exciting clients; to the creatively driven campaigns; to the passion, work ethic and determination of the senior management for Kairos to be a success - there's no shortage of inspiration to be found in the office pretty much on a daily basis. - Upper management are striving more than ever this year to ensure that they're putting employees first, with a big focus on mental health & wellbeing in the workplace - especially important as the work can be stressful depending on what team you are on. - I've been lucky to have the opportunity to travel to three countries abroad in the last year for Kairos. Trips and campaign events abroad aren't limited to just the directors & upper management, who actively encourage both junior management and executives to get out of the office and in front of clients wherever possible. - If you have drive, initiative & a 'can-do' attitude, Kairos is a company that you will very likely thrive in.

Cons

- Due to the nature of influencer marketing being somewhat 'always on', out of hours work is often to be expected on the campaigns / accounts team - especially with clients and influencers that are in different time zones. - Work (speaking from a position on the the campaigns / accounts team) can be stressful due to the level of interaction with clients and influencers, who can be difficult and frustrating to work with at times. - The company has grown and is growing at an incredibly fast rate, which does sometimes result in teething issues in processes and operations.

Advice to Management

Continue to listen to your employees; by placing trust in them they will return that trust.

How are promotions handled at Kairos Group?

Pros

You will be put onto projects which you are not competant enough on and forced to either sink or swim

Cons

- No one wants to help you swim. - Apparently the old management team was actually great but essentially all left at the same time, new management that replaced it was incompetant and almost our entire team has left now because of it. - No one listens to your feedback/concerns, and even worse, if you make any comments on management style they'll start questioning staff to find out who said it. - Management play the blame game at every opportunity - Staff turnover is insane because leadership focus on the money being generated over the wellbeing of teams - If you are not friends with someone senior, forget about being respected, management will treat you like a child. - They don't want to promote people because they know they'll have to pay you more. They were making up new KPI's to stop people from getting promoted - Basic pay is already bad - It was one of my worst experiences working at a company.

Advice to Management

Treat your people better. You apparently had a great team at one point and instead of building on that, you let it get run into the ground by horrible selfish management decisions. I feel sorry for the people still working there.

They don't want to promote people because they know they'll have to pay you more.

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.
