    Former Employee - Transcreation Account Manager 

    I worked at Hogarth Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Good transcreation projects, for well-known brands, nice to see your work on TV, etc. That sort of thing...

    Cons

    The technology there is NON-EXISTENT. A lot of Excel trackers (and trackers of the trackers) and manual things like that.

    I worked at Hogarth Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some amazing people, great new office at 151, summer Fridays,

    Cons

    If you're looking at joining HWW do so at your own risk, it's career suicide and very few agencies or recruiters around the world will even glance at your CV. Some directors are blatantly rude and use fear tactics along above their dictator approach, constantly over promising to client and expecting the staff to handle the mess they've invited and when deadlines are not met they simply fire or blame others for the mistakes. Seriously struggle to understand how they're still a profitable business through constantly reducing client rates, offshoring to poor quality delivering hubs, lying to clients and major shareholders or trying their best to confuse - overall it's a joke. Most staff are great but unfortunately the general skillset is below average and very few are professionally trained for their profession, worse it seems most don't even know how to flush the loo.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Hogarth Worldwide full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Empowering culture which allows people to get on with their day to day roles without being micro managed. With any business of this size trying to keep everyone happy is a challenge but the business genuinely tries to give everyone a voice and puts employees first. Mental health and diversity are also high on the agenda as a good work life balance.

    Cons

    As a predominantly production focused business, you can be limited in terms of type of work you're exposed to.
