      Avoid at ALL costs

      Pros

      Nice snacks and lunches, and that is literally it

      Cons

      Can only repeat what has been said before, unprofessional, backstabbing, managers with no clue what they’re doing, don’t expect any training to onboard and do your job, don’t ever expect any support or to develop your career. If you’re interested in having a career there please be willing to suck up to everyone, be treated like a piece of sh** and ignored for months until acknowledged and maybe eventually make it into the right group of people to have the right to get pissed all day and don’t do work but be praised. But don’t dare to actually try to do your job and be good and get anything positive from it. It’s just a horrible place to work and really bad for your mental health as well as your career.

    7. 4.0
      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      Good company, good benefits, but rigid hierarchy

      Feb 2, 2021 - Campaign Manager in London, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great atmosphere within the office, good collaboration between departments.

      Cons

      Rigid hierarchy and hard to negotiate salary. The yearly pay rise is very little, not even at the level of inflation so you end up earning less money year over year.
