    I have been working at Bond Brand Loyalty full-time

    Pros

    - Interesting projects and variety of clients. - Big ambitions. - Great people. - Great culture, very open and inclusive, a poster of gender equality. - Chance to do amazing job and be proud of it. - Compensation is good, benefits are above average.

    Cons

    - Too much politics, favoritism, biased approaches; few wrong people are placed in key roles and killing morale. - Decisions made for personal gain lead to loss of good people. - Struggle to convert vision into actionable goals and stay the course. - Desiring to change but can't commit; growth is attempted by scaling the approaches which did not work and keep failing. - No career development, no training. - "Endless vacation" policy is spoiled by guilt trips from managers.

We encourage you to speak to your manager or if you feel more comfortable reaching out to your People and Values business partner to address any of your concerns.

    Hi and thanks for this feedback! At a recent All Employee Meeting we spoke of the opportunities we need to continually take to share more across teams, and so I completely appreciate your advice. I'm excited to continue to evolve this practice across our teams to ensure we are constantly sharing ideas, best practices and achievements even more, together. Thanks again, your VP of People & Values.

    I have been working at Bond Brand Loyalty full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great culture & benefits (the culture truly cannot be replicated and is in the heart of everything we do) An organization that promotes performance based recognition (yes we work hard.. we're an extremely high output (high energy :) ) organization) Ambitious, engaging and rewarding agency culture (work hard, play hard) Places significant emphasis on people

    Cons

    Work life balance (not saying it's a negative necessarily but more so those who truly thrive in and embrace the culture likely have a different definition of work life balance :) ) Too many meetings (best intentions and I have confidence that we're continuing to work through best/most effective way to work/deliver while balancing optimal productivity and efficient communication)

    Pros

    This company is good for short term for a full time employee. Great culture.

    Cons

    If you're working as Developer you'll never get promoted to team lead as there is no team lead position. All developer report to Manager who is always a non technical person that result into a development style of developer's own choice. So rule is "Get the job done doesn't matter how". Developers doesn't get any recognition at all doesn't matter how good are you. Your performance will be reviewed yearly but there will not be further steps to get you to achieve your goal.

    Pros

    Brilliant people on every team. Great clients & projects to work on. Lots of opportunities to learn and increase your knowledge. Great culture, Fun Events, Philanthropists. Fitness centre on site with personal trainer.

    Cons

    Lots of politics get in the way, resulting in not enough opportunities for career path growth for hardworking passionate individuals who don't play politics. Often the values are overlooked; especially when many complaints about certain team members repeatedly not sharing the company's values are being expressed with no action to follow. Salaries can be improved to match industry standards.

    October 1, 2015People & Values Team

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. You are correct- an agency environment is not always 9-5. There are times when we are “all hands on deck” because we are committed to delivering with excellence for our clients. At Bond we work hard and play even harder. To offset extra hours, we provide our employees with personal floater days, a generous vacation policy, and an on-site subsidized cafeteria. Thank you again for your feedback, we truly appreciate it.
