    Pros

    Beer Fridays, fruit 2 or 3 days a week, cookie Wednesdays, and casual dress

    Disorganization and low pay. The usual sexism with a touch of the usual racism.

    Organize! Stop the favoritism!

    Current Employee - Digital Project Manager in London, England (UK)

    Pros

    Experience dealing with a lot of incoming work on a constant basis. Developing good organizational skills as well as learning to manage huge amounts of work.

    Cons

    Not much room for new skill learning. Work is far too busy to allow for any room for training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At times the job can consume the employee, needing to work late beyond the desired hours. Incentives should be provided for workers to be happy to work late hours. Salary rise, social activities, training, etc.

    Pros

    Good people, highly ambitious business, leverage of DPDHL supply chain yet to be unlocked

    Cons

    Takes a while to gain backing from senior business directors, sometimes slow in making decisions especially when involving changes to their processes. Still some time before real benefit is seen from unlocking DPDHL Supply chain capabilities

    Current Employee - Global Account Director

    Pros

    Tag is a non-political environment with very definable roles and delivery, it has a solid business model. Its proprietary software CMD is now a tad outdated and doesn't handle non production output very well.

    Cons

    No career path and very very loose supervision when it comes to management. I think many seniors are lost in the global scale of the new Tag and not enough time is taken looking after quality employees. Too much turnover would suggest a very badly/non existent retention policy.

    Once a great company with great leadership. A pull together succeed together ethos. Now a failing disaster badly led.

    Pros

    Some of the old school Tag guys are still around and are worth learning from.

    Cons

    completely inadequate leaders that do not understand what the companies success was built upon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look back at three years and try to emulate the management style. Stop being dishonest with the people that make the company work. Properly compensate the people that make the company work.

    Pros

    Manageable workload. Positive vibe. Flexible work hours. Relatively high salary compared to same positions in other agencies in my market.

    Cons

    Occasionally slow communication. Average management & coordination. Time difference can be hard to work with especially for urgent and/or big projects.

    Former Employee - Artworker  in  London, England (UK)
    Former Employee - Artworker in London, England (UK)

    Pros

    It's a well known company and a good starting point for juniors.
    Apart from that i can't actually think of any.

    Cons

    Some people have to work very hard, whilst some people have it easy street. It used to be set hours with voluntary paid overtime. A lot of people now feel pressured to do overtime for the minimum rate.
    It feels like a different company after being taken over by Williams & Lea in 2012.
    You used to feel like you had a future there and many people would work until retirement. Every year more and more redundancies as they let go of good people and ship work to their 'Overseas Hubs'. I wonder what the future is for employees now but i have lost all confidence and I'm sure moral is at an all time low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know your people, because your losing your best people.
