    Good for fresh graduate.

    Global company, which allows for broader experiences
    Well known clients
    Strong Social Responsibility program (we often volunteer in shelters and donate to charities)

    Strict budgets doesn't allow for much creativity
    Lots of turnover understandably caused by recent Williams Lea acquisition

    Former Employee - Senior Account Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Tag Worldwide full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good office location, some decent knowledgeable people, albeit downtrodden.

    Cons

    No perks, no training. Boring work with no chance of promotion or progression as management do not see individuals' skills or experience. Many layers of management, some of which no one has any idea what they do. With more and more work being moved overseas to ill-equipped studios, the future looks bleak.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees, offer training and a career path.

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organize! Stop the favoritism!

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

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time for less than a year

    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.

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

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time for more than 10 years

    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.

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time for less than a year

    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

    I have been working at Tag Worldwide full-time for more than 3 years

    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.

    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.
