      Pros

      The company as a whole is a good company, there is a family feel to it and it can give you great experiences.

      Cons

      Unfortunately the marketing team changed drastically and ruined the company. Many people talk about the rest of the business being prejudiced but wait until you get to business services.. due to many people in that department seeking the praise from ‘the business’ they will tear you down and drag you through the mud to get one up on you. It was once a great team and I hope it will be again but for the moment, I wouldn’t recommend it for your mental health. No exit interview was offered, they basically wash their hands once they’ve decided you’re no longer useful.

      Not for everyone

      18 Mar 2021 - Marketing in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval

      Pros

      If your face fits (probably because you're a white man, preferably who was privately educated) you'll do well.

      Cons

      Very old fashioned. Slow to adapt. Women are judged more harshly. Very few people work part time and those that do are expected to work on their days off. The global exec board is all male. To be on the board you have to be an equity partner, which means having been a fee-earner, so essential services you'd expect to be represented like HR, IT etc aren't. Of 75 equity partners, 72 are men and all or nearly all are white.
