    Pros

    Good benefits. Interesting dynamics, can move to other agencies or other parts of the business so lots of opportunity. Xaxis is not as big as its umbrella company so can sometimes have a nice team feel to it rather then feeling just a number. Innovative, up and coming.

    Cons

    More males is senior leadership team but a strong focus on this to promote equality so they are looking at it

    Pros

    Part of WPP and can potentially go to another group or company though they make it difficult

    Cons

    Under qualified executive team. Blame culture. Lack of clarity, direction and basic leadership skills from the top. No culture or values. No plan or vision around talent / HR is non existent despite the titles. Difficult to retain staff based on growing uncertainty and lack of a clear position within and outside the group.
