      I am so grateful that I was hired for Australia's Fastest Growing Digital Agency. Definitely fast-paced and lots of hunter and fisherman.I am extremely happy since I got an exciting and dynamic opportunity to enhance both my problem-solving skills and organisation skills.Our newly renovated office is beautiful and the work culture at KK is wonderful.

      Cons

      Nothing as such.If you have the quick learning ability and multi tasking skills you won't find anything challenging here.

      Good place to learn

      Pros

      You will be challenged and pushed to learn. Great team to work with. Good entry into digital marketing. If you're in a sales or account management role you can make decent commission and learn a lot about sales.

      Cons

      Senior management is very money and contract driven, which is pushed by the general manager and the founder. Clients often get no work done on their accounts, but kk still seek payments and contract terms. Fairly ego driven culture that 'we are the best' so deserve your money. General manager is one to have on side as she is the founders right hand.

      Amazing opportunity for growth-minded individuals

      Pros

      The sales team is world class and we have an Amazing sales manager who we all respect and admire. That says a lot. Second to the sales manager are the actual sales troops who throw down every single day - and continue to do so even when working remote. Everything you see on YouTube is true, and then some. An amazing environment and you wouldn't be able to find anything that comes close. Recommended for anyone who wants to push themselves and see what they are all about.

      Cons

      Not recommended for anyone who doesn't want to do training, reading, growing in their own time. You're better to take another 9-5. Not recommended for anyone who doesn't have thick skin, or wants to develop a thick skin - Actually, better you come in with thick skin and life experience otherwise you will be eaten alive, or run the risk of fatigue.

      Pros

      I have been working with KingKong for 3 years! I joined as a junior designer in 2017. Not only my career and skills uplifted to the next level, my personal life has been changed! The Great Sabri and team has trained me every day with projects and client experiences to design products that impact millions of people around the World. There are monthly fun team activities, exceptional team meetings, company growth reports and personal grooming sessions that not only help you in professional life but also impact your personal attributes! It's a powerhouse talented FAMILY!

      Cons

      You have to be the best of the best! KingKong hires only 1% of the best.

      Be careful with this opportunity

      Pros

      Consistent work coming through - in high volumes. Good place to learn for 3-6 months

      Cons

      The problem with reviews is that staff leave them when they are happy. The real story here is the company has 50% turnover during a pandemic after the best year in sales. Culty atmosphere and loose morals when it comes to selling. There is no room for career growth here. Lower end of agency pay.

      A Great, Fast Paced, Culture Driven Agency

      Pros

      The people and the culture are the obvious stand-outs at King Kong. A lot of care goes in to picking the right people and maintaining a healthy, fun, and friendly environment. The management in my experience is also really flexible and if there are issues there is always a lot of healthy, open discussion around how to fix them and make things even better.

      Cons

      This is intense and fast-paced environment for sure. For some that will be a welcome challenge and for others it might get tiring or frustrating quite quickly. Clients are demanding and expect the best, as do the staff and management. These things are not really a hard "con", but definitely something to be aware of if you're looking at joining the team.

      Pros

      Everything is great! An incredible Founder who really cares about all of his employees and making it the best workplace for them. The people, senior management, monthly activities, rewards, everyone's drive to succeed, and how we celebrate the wins together.

      Cons

      COVID definitely has tested me on a couple of things (recruiting virtually, virtual employee engagement activities). However, it has not stopped us from staying connected, celebrating those wins and having the best culture!!
