    -Amazing team - Time allowed to understand the business/client/platforms/processes, and this is great because in advertising agencies it’s not always like this - convenient location - international team although lots of British too - subsidised gym - progression opportunities exist, KPIs and performance are being tracked all the time which is very good

    Cons

    - low starting salary of under 21k and therefore I guess not many people stay for years even with progression being possible
