    I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

      Pros

      It used to be the people I worked with, but it seems that 85% of them have left, not by pull factors from their new opporunities but largely from push factors within. Clients have been interesting and big brand names, but seems that there's been a mini exodus of big brand names over the last few years.

      Cons

      Abysmal pay - new pay bands introduced but blatant lies to those who now fall outside the new bands whose pay was then not adjusted to fit, allegedly. Poor communication - they try so hard with regional and global meetings but it's nothing but buzzwords and business guff. Awful HR who of course protect the company above all else. Very obviously cliquey and hard to trust. Cliquey senior leadership as well. CSR initiatives mostly just for show - afraid to make any difficult option of taking a stand and only picks and chooses causes to look good. Fair enough, it's a business, but then stop pretending. Constant merging, consistent growing pains with no positive changes to our work environment. Lots of issues with resource as people leave and there is trouble filling roles, outsourcing to other smaller offices where salaries are cheap is not the way, neither is hiring contractors just to fill gaping holes in your teams. Morale is low and people are getting more and more cynical. You need to push, hard and all the time for any chance of progression, which largely seems to stem from middle managers being way too busy to prioritise people management due to client commitments.
