    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 an 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    Working hours could be long as HQ is based in UK.

    Current Employee - Account Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great to have on your CV
    Used to be a lot of Pro's but not since DHL have taken control. I have watched this company grow and was respected for the work it did, but now we are losing more pitches and accounts then we are winning.

    Cons

    No Training
    No career path
    No leadership from senior management
    Work you hard for little reward
    No overtime

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating your staff as numbers on a balance sheet
    Listen to your staff
    Wake up to sending work out to low cost hubs who do not understand the culture of the company all for the sake of improving the balance sheet so that the faceless share holders get their premiums
