      Pros

      Huge network Opportunity for growth (if you seek it) Company reputation Multitude of projects Great people

      Cons

      Not necessarily a con, but you need to seek out work. It will not just be handed to you and you need to prove yourself.

      Pros

      Consistently great people in the teams. Very committed to meeting and exceeding client needs. Opportunity to work with people across multiple regions is very exciting.

      Cons

      Obsessive focus on bottom line and cutting costs results in teams who are too stretched. And this, not surprisingly impacts on client satisfaction. Perversely, senior management do not seem to see the link between having enough people to do the work and client retention.

      Big name clients, sociable atmosphere

      Jul 24, 2015 - Client Executive in London, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Opportunity to work with some big international brands including Sony, Amazon and Ford. Great place to start your career and develop the skill set needed to succeed in PR. One EMEA secondment programme which allows Associates and above to spend 3 months working in a different office in EMEA. Very sociable office with great people.

      Cons

      Remuneration is poor compared to other agencies in London and below the industry average. Promotions are a guessing game -no one ever knows when the next round will take place as the agency is constrained by its partner group WPP. Headcount of staff is much lower than it was a few years ago due to the loss of some major clients.
