    I worked at Builtvisible full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Company culture. The culture is so great, everyone is such a fun lovely bunch and get on like a house on fire. We love a good night out and a few (too many) Friday after work drinks too! Career development. Especially in the content team where I worked, its really easy to grow within your role as the director Rebecca is amazing and really listens to how you want to grow and will help make it possible. Training....

    Cons

    Inevitably, BV could work on some of the processes to do with communication between sales and AM's as well as the creative and content team working together. Luckily Builtvisible is always working on improving processes so I am sure this is work in progress already.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do, if it wasn't for me moving away from London I'd 1000% still be working here as I absolutely love all of you!

    I have been working at Builtvisible full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Work life balance Some very skilled people

    Cons

    Asking us to leave positive reviews on Glassdoor (to be fair, it seems to be working!), people who are close to CEO is getting promotions and not the ones showing the highest level of performance, sales team is over-promising, leaving others to pick up the pieces. The company is relying on a few key people who don't get enough recognition.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of claiming that reviews that you disagree with are fake, realise there is a problem.

    I worked at Builtvisible full-time

    Pros

    Office location, flexible working times and company days out.

    Cons

    No training, clear favouritism and segregation, projects are incredibly short, no long term vision, very "quick turnaround" sighted, SEO company acting as an agency. It’s not somewhere you want to be long term.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people who have left and make changes. You’re clearly doing something wrong if they’re all saying the same thing. All the good reviews are from current employees which leads to believe they are coerced reviews. Do better.

    If this review is genuine, the coherent parts of it do a real disservice to a wonderful group of people who love what they do and have a great time doing it together. Given none of the above has come up in any exit interviews, I would be happy to discuss any specifics with you ...

    Pros

    Joining at Builtvisible has been the best career move I've made so far. It's a really collaborative, ambitious and exciting environment to work in. The agency has a really high standard in terms of hiring which means you learn incredible amounts from the people around you everyday. The content campaigns we run are unique and exciting- everyone cares about the work they do which makes coming in to the office a...

    I have been working at Builtvisible full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I've been at Builtvisible for many years now, starting out as a junior but progressing quickly thanks to the excellent support structure. Everyone is very friendly, funny, and welcoming, and the company culture is great - lots of socials, events, shared side projects, etc. The management structure is very flat and there are lots of opportunities for career progression and training. The company hires very smart people...

    Cons

    The agency has outgrown its current office, and people are siloed between floors. However that's changing very soon, since we're moving to a huge new place with a private roof terrace!

    Obviously quite disengaged here, which is a shame (and rare, thankfully). This would lead me to question the validity of the claims/perception of our wonderful agency. We clearly value talent hugely – our people are our best asset and we invest heavily in their development through ...

    We have a great culture of support, respect and curiosity, we're not afraid of trying new things and we're all constantly learning from each other. I've been working at Builtvisible for 3 and a half years and I have loved the entire experience.

    Currently, we're in a 4 storey building which makes things a little annoying, but we are moving to a new office soon where we'll all be on one floor.

    I have been working at Builtvisible full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    A core of some of the most knowledgeable and open to sharing professionals in the SEO industry A flat senior management structure that is very approachable and listens Better compensation than other comparable agencies Fewer retained clients to manage, more project work Refreshing approach to account management, with no separate underskilled CS team

    Cons

    It can feel like people are only talking through Skype Annoying office procedures thanks to self-managed building (but moving this year) Some inconsistent internal comms for agency news, round ups & goings on

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, but maybe tell us more about what is going on and involve smaller teams in the decisions you're making. Like round tables, perhaps, or something that makes newer members of staff bought in to the agency's direction. Better induction process for new starters getting to grips with how the agency sees itself, where it wants to go, how people can contribute. Seen examples with a video from...

    Working as a designer at Builtvisible is quite exciting. You have to collaborate really closely with the content team and you can really make a difference by helping shape the project in the best way possible. The colleagues are very friendly and the variety of roles in the company can really help you understand the various sides of the industry. Personal development is a fundamental part of the company.
