Going downhill fast

Strategist (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA (US)

I have been working at AKQA full-time for more than a year

ProsWas a great culture with great people. Fun projects and good alignment with other teams. Incredible visionaries who did some great incredible work.

ConsCheap company. Finance department is intolerable to get things improved. No vision beyond some great project based work. Very siloed, creative teams dispersed through the building but yet media and search teams reside in the basement where they have been for years. Now that there is a WPP acquisition, key leadership employees have been leaving. What was once a shining star really seems to be losing its luster, and fast.

Advice to Senior ManagementStabilize the ship, or you are going to lose 50% of your employees in the next year.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
