Lots of change going on and is a great place to be, although can get a bit stressful due to the pace of change. But nice offices dotted around in Central London. I worked on a global programme so it meant had to be in working at some weird times as dealt with 3 major timezones. However the work culture is quite traditional and you are generally expected to be in office all 5 days of the week (Before Covid19). Great place to work on some cutting edge projects and some lovely bunch of people if commute is not an issue.
Pros
Free Magazines, pub social events
Cons
Attrition rate, work culture

Great company, people and culture. Very connected to the needs of their employees and embarking on an exciting mid-term business strategy. Nice place to work.

Draining & unmotivated enviroment, unreasonable work loads and dead lines, managment clearly clash in effort to be top dog and squabble like children and some should have retired 10 years ago but now spew their bitterness over fresh new faces wanting to learn positive work ethics. Bullying and sexist culture. Men seem far more prefered and 'heard' professionally. Whole experience very taxing on self esteem and mental health. The most poisonous managment team and some of the most unpleasant people I have ever had the misfortune to work with.
Pros
going home

You will work late into the night, only to be shouted at by people for not working hard enough. One good thing i would say is they hire anyone straight out of uni and will give you lots of training

Fast paced and collaborative environment, the management is very relatable with the team. One of the best things about working for DAN is the global exposure.

No worklife balance. Didnt like the management. Everyone was overworked. You have to suit a certain culture to feel part of a team. Managers werent supportive to develop you

Global company so sometimes there's a lack of communication, So many different agencies within the group makes producing different content for each group difficult as you end up with too many people saying the same thing or contradicting themselves.

During the 12 months I led New Business for the UK Media Brands I delivered the first new business win for Carat's London agency in almost two years followed by a string of further account wins. Senior Management in the London business was fluid and no all the good talented people that left the network's agencies were adequately replaced. Having worked alongside the London business for four years to then spend a year working inside it was both a challenge and a valuable learning experience.
Pros
Nice offices
Cons
No line management

The first 9 months of being there was great. Management allowed a lot of staff to leave and replaced them with apprentices, work loads increased almost 3 times and yet management were baffled as to why performance and morale dropped. extremely poor pay.
Pros
nice office
Cons
horrible, horrible people

Unfortunately, there is an extremely high staff turn over, I believe this is down to poor management, not living up to the companies values, and the immense amount of work and pressure to deliver. This company does not know the meaning of work/life balance unless you know the right people. A typical day would be around 4 to 5 meetings before you even get to do your day to day job. Everything needs to be delivered yesterday, with no or little exceptions.
Pros
Met some amazing people
Cons
long hours, manipulative management

A typical day at work was challenging, yet intriguing. Smart and capable workforce which made the work feel less like work. The company allowed for a great work-life balance

No support given from when you start the role Feeling of disorientation and disorganisation Awful senior consultant who used micro management, and bullying tactics to build a case of incompetence against junior members No support from any senior management

Sinking ship with no vision and lack of leadership, promoting bullying and unfair culture. Still clear and unfair favoritism within the HR team. The workplace culture is very hierarchical with zero work-life balance. Join if you are desperate otherwise avoid.

A modern working environment, which allowed the flexibility to work both at home and in the office. Communications between teams across the world was well accommodated for using suitable technology.

Fetch was a great place, DAN was good, but suffered with size, and they needed to finesse the OpCo model in my time there, as several OpCos ended up competing with each other, which the Connect Media initiative in late 2018 is likely to remedy
