Pros

- The people across teams are generally, awesome. - Well-known brands as clients which adds kudos. - Dogs in the office on a regular occasion. - Cool offices

Cons

- The 'culture' that they like to talk about so much died long ago. It's a dog-eat-dog culture now and everyone is dispensable, aside from those in the senior clique. - Many of the leadership team (with the exception of a small few) were promoted there off the back of personal preference as opposed to skill and experience. It shows. - Flexible working hours which don't actually mean flexible. - Someone trying to do NLP on you to manipulate situations is NOT ok. - Opportunities to progress are limited. - A mass exodus of staff has tattered the reputation of excellent culture and staff retention. - They constantly change their 'Mission and Values' on a whim, so it's clear that standing for something depends on whichever way the wind blows on that particular occasion.

Advice to Management

- Treat staff with respect - Lose the COO and restructure correctly

It's a dog-eat-dog culture now and everyone is dispensable, aside from those in the senior clique.

Pros

The learning culture is huge, everyone wants to be on the cutting edge, to share their insights and test the latest developments. There’s a sense that the company is on the cusp of going big, particularly off the back of some huge client wins. The standard is so high and everyone is like-minded, with a good sense of humour. Staff socials just feel like nights out with your best friends. You’re challenged but always supported, and having dogs walking around the office while you work is never a bad thing.

Cons

Like with any agency, workloads can be intense. But there’s a lot of support in place to help anyone who’s feeling overwhelmed or stressed.

Advice to Management

Keep it up!

Pros

Fantastic place to work. You are really challenged. High quality of out-put.

Cons

Office politics are awful here. If you don't quite fit in, you get ostracized and isolated, making it a very anxious place to work. Not very welcoming if you don't quite fit the mould.

Advice to Management

Make sure that everyone feels welcomed and part of the team. Don't just let members of staff sink if you don't personally like them, whilst only supporting the ones 'you like' on a social level, regardless of how good they are at their job.

Office politics are awful here.
