    I worked at Tag Worldwide

    Pros

    Tag is an impressive company going from start up to worldwide enterprise to being acquired in a relatively short amount of time, in a competitive business environment. They have the business network and systems and reach to make them good at what they do and to make them a big player.

    Cons

    I was hired in a Senior Level Client Manager position.
    Upper management was non-existent.
    Middle management was a tight group of brit boys and pals who managed very little and just kept things on track with very little change in status quo.
    The heavy lifting was done by younger employees, underpaid, undervalued and under appreciated.
    I would not recommend Tag.

    Pros

    It feels great and it makes you feel at the core of business. Compensation is ok, people are great.

    Cons

    Perhaps working on the company culture to make it more creative would be great.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at Tag Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Best reason to work here is virtually no supervision...no one cares enough or has the talent to know whether you're doing your job properly or not...they don't even know if you're there or not.

    Cons

    There's no leadership and the place is staffed with young, inexperienced (i.e., inexpensive) personnel who are more ambitious and connected to someone in management than talented.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better attention to the people you hire and learn how to manage them.

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, career opportunities, fruit once a week, social events, Xmas parties, very sociable crowd, young full of fresh ideas, training and development is good, few very skilled people managers

    Cons

    Below market rates, contributes to staff attrition, few areas understaffed and overworked. Some managers not experienced enough to lead teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a clear path to promote the leaders of tomorrow, reward individuals who have added value. Introduce cross departmental workshops to create synergy and knowledge transfer between teams.

    The rest of the team, all in the same situation on the account. They were all very supportive.

    Global Account Director management style was non-existent with zero people skils, salary, work load, management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on constantly reviewing Global Account Directors.

    Pros

    Great people, great location, fantastic Xmas parties.

    Cons

    No annual salary reviews, no pay rises. After Williams Lea bought Tag it got worse and worse. They say that they do care and promise you changes, but nothing ever happened. No leadership from senior management. No Trainings.
    It's a digital world and Tag IT blocks you from everything, admin rights on developers machines for example are needed to perform some tasks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward individuals who have added the value before they leave.
