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.
Free Magazines, pub social events
Attrition rate, work culture
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.
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.
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.
horrible, horrible people
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!

Lots of talented people across various teams. They have many different channels to work in, also it is possible to move between specialist teams to improve your career advancement.
Flexi hours, good pension, fun environment
Long hours when involved in pitches
Varied interesting role with scope for international travel. excellent management that strives to ensure a good work/life balance. TEamwork is genuinely encouraged and success is viewed in terms of team rather than individual success.
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.
Met some amazing people
long hours, manipulative management
Overall terrible experience. Would not recommend. 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
Company was still culturally moving from a medium sized business to a large global company. A lot of rewarding work and projects to get involved in, however,little interest in focusing on training/developing staff.
Hit and miss with management
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
