    I worked at PHD Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people, everyone is really young. 4:30 finish on a Friday (pending timesheets). When we were in the office there was always a lot of social events happening.

    Cons

    Pay is absolutely atrocious for the work people do. HR is award winningly bad, they do not help at all and always take ages to get back to any queries you have. They made the whole process of leaving the company very detached, I did wonder when I worked at PHD if the HR staff were actually qualified or happy in their line of work. HR says a lot about a company and how they treat their staff and I really think PHD need to review this in the London office. Promotions are not given even if you have worked for the company for some time. Pay rises are none existent, especially during COVID times, for a year pay rises have not been authorised and people are working 45-50 hour weeks.
