    Pros

    Working on big complex projects for the largest brands in Australia, lot's of really smart & genuine people without the agency attitude/complex. Generally casual culture and vibe in the office in a great location in South Melbournre. Internal promotion opportunities are quite high (if you can handle the pressure), and encouragement of knowledge transfer and internal training attitudes are also really good. Strong business development of late has seen a major upswing in Melbourne, with 2016 set for a very strong start. Extremely strong roster of major retail brands (K-mart, Bunnings, Officeworks etc) if that's your thing. DT is an excellent place to grow at all levels, it really opens doors to other opportunities in the industry. You can expect lots of linkedin interest from recruiters due to it's reputation.

    Cons

    Unrealistic pressure from STW parent group and long term co-location for some team members has been a highly destructive force really eating away at what was a very strong company culture. Extremely high turnover from people quitting or being poached by clients in the last 12 months has been the result. Staff often left to sink or swim, often because people leaving are not replaced so this results in additional responsibilities stacking up. Morale has been a real issue, though this is getting much better. DT as a digital agency at 20 years old has a cultural & identity problem internally & externally – meaning a lot of re-structuring and title changes but very little actual changes. Work life balance can be a real challenge with constant pitching. Pay is not in line with the tech industry which is an issue, because DT is really less of an agency and more of a product & platform development company, but is still better than the ad industry locally.
