    Great people. Clueless management and lacking vision.

    I have been working at AKQA full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work together with some very talented people that produce high quality work under extreme deadlines and all without leadership and vision.

    Cons

    There are to many passengers on the plane. The vision of this company is: We have no clue, but it has something to do with digital and someone better make it now. You will need to work long hours and multiple weekends in a row. There will be little to no rewards when the project is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in good people. Get leaders in the management layer, not promoted account- or project managers. They are good with numbers, not with people. Create a culture.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at AKQA.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through a recruiter interested in my profile seen on LinkedIn for a position in their London office. After a quick talk with the recruiter, I received a programming test, the "meeting scheduler" that I did in 2 hours.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the position would have started at an inconvenient time for me and I was already in a project that was confirmed and rolling.
