I have been working at Spencer Ogden full-time
Having worked at other agencies in the industry I can say with full confidence that Spencer Ogden is a truly special and unique place to work.
Positivity is promoted and wins are celebrated - there is a hard working culture of success driven, like minded people who enjoy the fruits of their intense labor. There is a real feeling of leading from the front with support from management given you a real sense of togetherness rather than working for them, as can be the case in this industry.
I can not see any real downsides to the company, there is a fair and cohesive environment producing consistent success which employees see in their paychecks and incentives.
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Spencer Ogden (London, England).
Many hours out of my time with phone calls and face to face interviews. Dubious from start reminded me of dealing with bad estate agents with massive egos. Very unprofessional ending. Not surprised.
