    I have been working at Archetype full-time

    Pros

    Really enjoy the relationships with coworkers that have been developed and also feeling that although you have management they are very approachable and down to earth.

    Cons

    Not always delegating things that people can handle so management does not get overwhelmed with too many little steps others could do.

    Pros

    Some friendly people, although lots of talent left when Text and Bite merged. Working from home when needed Central London office

    Cons

    Leadership in London needs to leave and start from scratch. No company direction. They can't answer 'what they do'. Little collaboration between teams and everyone works in silos. So many redundancies and people leaving, that it's unsettling.

    I worked at Archetype full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Few big name client accounts

    Cons

    Horrible leadership and HR team. They promise you one thing and give you ten worse things. They regularly lie to employees about resources and then play blame game when caught. No work life balance and too much politics.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Archetype full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible working policy means you can literally work wherever and whenever you want. Also, you're generally given a lot of autonomy to do your work how you see fit. However, this can also mean a lack of support and being detached from your co-workers.

    Cons

    Atmosphere is like a morgue due to the amount of people and business leaving the door. People who aren't particularly good or motivated get away with murder as no-one really manages them properly. Don't get fooled by the flashy expensive office - you'll find that it's empty most of the time and to be honest I doubt they can afford to stay there much longer. Clueless senior management. Awful decisions being made, with no thought about the consequences for their teams due to the fact they don't have an idea what is going on below them and/or just don't care. Good people have left because of this. There have been some cringeworthy announcements where they've obviously obsessed on how they should communicate to the company and failed spectacularly. If they actually cared, they would have already known the right way. The so-called "leadership team" is a closed shop and they quite simply only care about how they're seen by people above them and don't actually lead. If they continue on this path, the company will cease to exist in a couple of years.
