      Pros

      Global company with involvement of all aspects of media; if you’re able to work with right people and progress, ability to move laterally and get wider exposure and experience.

      Cons

      A very matrixed company with a lot of stakeholders and key decision making in the US - can make for slow deal making.

      Pros

      None apart from meeting few good/lovely people

      Cons

      Everyone from US is racist. It’s a company I would never recommend. There is no sympathy towards employees who suffer from caring responsibility. Lies after lies.

      Excessive workloads & moving goalposts

      Jun 28, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in London, England, England
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Experience in a giant corporate machine. Hard working, loyal and collaborative teams on the ‘shop floor’. Great benefits and salaries. Transparency and ongoing communication from HQ. Regular EMEA local updates covering all teams goals and targets and successes.

      Cons

      Excessive workloads, with ever changing goalposts and last minute projects / tasks / targets with not enough teams or budgets to cover the current work or the late addition work. Regular restructures. Unsure on where EMEA is heading in conjunction with domestic / hq. EMEA networks is a small fish in big pond, despite its successes. Aggressive deadlines and multiple levels of approvals, hoops and red tape with small timeframes. Hit and miss support from operational broadcast teams. Minds are changed weekly - so it’s hard to keep up. Middle management seem to do the heavy lifting.
