    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.

    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.

    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

    I worked at Tag Worldwide full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good office location, some decent knowledgeable people, albeit downtrodden.

    Cons

    No perks, no training. Boring work with no chance of promotion or progression as management do not see individuals' skills or experience. Many layers of management, some of which no one has any idea what they do. With more and more work being moved overseas to ill-equipped studios, the future looks bleak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, offer training and a career path.

    Terrible company

    Current Employee - Account Manager in New York, NY (US)

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

    Pros

    I've been here for a few months and have yet to find any pros. Beer Friday is cool

    Cons

    Some people who work there are friendly and helpful whereas the other 90% are miserable, rude, stuck up and extremely under qualified.

    Management is terrible - they have no management skills in terms of both workload and managing employees, employee conflicts, etc. There is no clear role of job duties based on your position - work is basically pawned off onto others. Anyone with the word "senior" in their job title is a complete joke - it means nothing aside from that they've been there too long and couldn't move up to a higher position.

    Salary is low

    Being run by Williams Lea makes the company so corporate it hurts. Also, any Tag director or above is pretty much Williams Lea's puppet. Anyone on the executive level at Tag is way under qualified and if they're British they have the job for that reason.

    There is a lot of favoritism. If someone on the executive level doesn't know you they act like you don't exist.

    Do not bother working here unless you're desperate. You lose all motivation extremely fast and you'll find yourself bored out of your mind every day. Also, the company tries to sell itself for way more than it is. When you interview you'll be shown certain offices that make you think it's such a cool, modern agency. Then you work there and realize you never get to see those areas and that the place is sooo outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring people who are actually qualified would be a great start
