    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 less than a year

    Pros

    I've been here for a few months and have yet to find any pros. Beer Friday is cool

    Cons

    Some people who work there are friendly and helpful whereas the other 90% are miserable, rude, stuck up and extremely under qualified.

    Management is terrible - they have no management skills in terms of both workload and managing employees, employee conflicts, etc. There is no clear role of job duties based on your position - work is basically pawned off onto others. Anyone with the word "senior" in their job title is a complete joke - it means nothing aside from that they've been there too long and couldn't move up to a higher position.

    Salary is low

    Being run by Williams Lea makes the company so corporate it hurts. Also, any Tag director or above is pretty much Williams Lea's puppet. Anyone on the executive level at Tag is way under qualified and if they're British they have the job for that reason.

    There is a lot of favoritism. If someone on the executive level doesn't know you they act like you don't exist.

    Do not bother working here unless you're desperate. You lose all motivation extremely fast and you'll find yourself bored out of your mind every day. Also, the company tries to sell itself for way more than it is. When you interview you'll be shown certain offices that make you think it's such a cool, modern agency. Then you work there and realize you never get to see those areas and that the place is sooo outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hiring people who are actually qualified would be a great start

    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.

    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.

    It's a mess and management don't do anything about it rather than agreeing that it's a mess.....hopeless
    No career path, no promotions

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

    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.
