      One big family driving innovation, hard work and pushing the boundaries of online marketing

      Pros

      Working from home is flexible, the team is driven, hardworking and the culture is exciting and fun. Beautiful offices in the center of London with a coffee bar, amazing views and lots of space. They support working parents, flexi-working and early Friday finishes. Lots of support groups for ethnicity, women, parents, sexuality and disabilities.

      Cons

      There can be long working hours and like lots of big agencies people leave and move into other roles leaving gaps in teams.

      Young entry-level staff but poor retention capabilities

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great company culture especially with the new CEO (not Helen McRae). Lots of focus on mental health and well being. Flexible hours and good benefits. Strong push into diversity and inclusion over the last year. Late start and early finish on Fridays.

      Cons

      Great talent at graduate and manager levels. Huge talent loss at higher levels due to complete lack of pay structure and no clear path to career progression. Department heads are poor especially outside of media planning and buying. Pat on the back rewards instead of financial incentives. Head of one department may/will pretend there is a pay freeze while employees of other departments get promoted/pay rises during the same time. Some long term employees (c. 10 years tenure) with very little talent but strong political influence. Promotions often based on politics and friendships. Account directors and higher levels always replaced by graduates who are paid very little and sold on benefits.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Talented people at every level - Fun / classy office environment - Great benefits (pension, healthcare, monthly free bar etc) - Respected in the industry as part of WPP / GroupM

      Cons

      - Sprawling corporate environment reduces you to a small cog in a very large money making machine - Zero transparency on wages with little to no annual pay rises - No structured bonus scheme with awards based on merit sometimes seeming secretive and unfair - Extremely political at the mainly white and male management team level - Very little opportunities for career progression, with staff often having to leave to gain a promotion / payrise elsewhere - Bland proposition in the media agency market that makes it less attractive to prospective new clients - Client aims often secondary to the agency's thirst for profit
