Former Intern - IT Practitioner

Cons

Unable to think of one

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Sponge full-time for less than a year

Pros

Great, talented creative people; modern HQ offices

Cons

Fast expansion led to: no effective onboarding; unclear and inconsistent explanation of business systems, tools, templates and processes; 100% utilisation on multiple projects with no time allocated... in the time management tool for internal communication or collaboration - or creativity. Vast discrepancy between what was promoted and what was experienced.

Advice to Management

Look at ways to add value throughout projects rather than primarily focusing on reducing operational costs.
