Feel right at home. The recruitment team know what they're doing, team's feel like a family. Nonstop learning and skill development

A company that thrives on innovating and disrupting in one way or another. A company that's willing to listen to a different perspective. Great people with an unrivalled work-life balance. Wins are consistently being celebrated as a team. Oh, and the 4 pm Friday beer fridge is a good cherry on top.
Just like any open-plan office, noise travels but the benefits of it outway noise when you can just move somewhere quite or work from home if necessary.King Kong Response5mo

The culture here at king kong is envied by most other agencies world wide. we are all passionate about digital marketing and it shows! Previously whenever i spoke to friends and family about digital marketing they would just stare blankly at me like i was speaking another language... This is now a thing of the past! I now have 80 people who are happy and even excited to talk digital marketing with me every single day! (along with normal people topics lol ) Plus the work is amazing! Seeing the impact we have on peoples lives everyday is the reason I wake up and come to work! We honestly are a team of elite marketers and I'm proud to tell people I work at king kong!
With any job you'll have bad things... at King Kong the worst thing is having to battle Sabri for the #1 table tennis player title..he's pretty good NGL!

King Kong's a pretty great place to work if I'm being honest. I always feel supported, valued and heard. The company culture makes it a joy to come to work and not just a regular 9-5.
Very fast-paced working environment with a big emphasis on autonomy, so if you aren't open to planning out your own schedule it probably won't work for you.King Kong Response5mo
Thank you for the feedback. We do love allowing our tribe to take charge of their day and plan it out in a way that works best for them.

The challenges are what you would expect at any agency but this is the opportunity for the individual to tackle them, to not be afraid to ask for help, training or guidance and to ultimately become great with time management, resilience, balance and taking part. You need to be invested in your craft, motivated and naturally inquisitive, it will only help you and you will be supported each step of the way. Welcome in the challenges, it's part of the magic of agency life.

Honestly, I love everything about working at King Kong. I used to watch King Kong's youtube videos of team meetings and imagine what it would be like to work there. Fast forward a year and I do work here now and can confidently say it's exactly what I imagined and more. The culture is great, everyone is genuinely friendly, welcoming and supportive. The management really do care and aren't overbearing, they definitely give you your freedom. Working here you learn so much, from all sides of digital marketing, not just your own department. When you 'kick goals', appreciation is shown for all your hard work. Even non-work related milestones in your life are celebrated and you get all kinds of surprises and kind gestures throughout the year. Can't recommend working here enough.
I wouldn't call it a 'con' but you do need to work hard in your role to succeed. King Kong will provide you all the support and tools to succeed but you still need to put in the hard work and develop strong problem solving skills to make that happen.
