    I worked at Th_nk full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good salary, good offices, modern equipment, trend setting and very interesting work and great clients to work with.

    Cons

    There appears to be a clique, if you are friendly with management and massage their ego's, you will go far. If you disagree with anyone because of your professional integrity, you have had it!

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate you hire professionals that do a job, they have many year experience in their field. Have faith and trust in their judgements.

    I have been working at Th_nk full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    - The work (different clients, industry sectors, propositions), nothing is the same - The people (smart, hard working, supportive, empowered) - Great culture (we know our values, work as a team, we all pull together to meet them) - Communication (regular get togethers of everyone in one office, regular agency updates, Friday beers reviewing the week, regular new biz updates)

    Cons

    - Agency pace can sometimes be difficult for people to adapt to if they aren't familiar with it - As the work is not always the same, finding the balance between standardising and innovation / creativity can sometimes be a challenge - Being a small agency sometimes means that the leadership team can be extremely busy across multiple accounts, so we empower our teams to be the owners of what they do with the right support

    Advice to Management

    - Continue the great work on building the agency culture (getting everyone together every quarter etc) - Continue to pave the way in our methodology and approach to digital transformation, we are always improving and getting better - Continue what we have started in the innovation area, this really wet's the appetite of our talent

    I have been working at Th_nk full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I'm a dev at th_nk, not management, hr, or an automated response system, and I have undertaken this off my own back and on my own time. I wouldn't usually bother with writing reviews unless I had a chance of winning a £1000 shopping spree or something along those lines. However, there are way to many angry vibes on this site from people who obviously haven't worked at th_nk for a long time, and who's probable drunken...

    Yep there are cons, but there are everywhere, sometimes life sucks. Sometimes we're too busy, sometimes we're too quiet, sometimes I wish I was paid more, sometimes there's no milk!

    Pros

    As a long serving member of staff I think there's a lot of untruthful negative comments written about TH_NK. It's a pretty nice place to work and it is what you make of it. Let me address some of the cons mentioned: The culture between Newcastle and London If you live or want to work in the North East and get exposure to big brand companies, interesting briefs and still enjoy the more relaxing commute to work, cheaper...

    Cons

    There's not enough bananas left by Wednesday, so eat your fill on a Monday. If you don't like beer/wine/gin Friday beers at 4.30 on a *Friday* might not be up your street. You're allowed to drink tea and coffee though, so maybe it's not so bad There’s only 1 shower room, so if you go to the gym, it’s probably best to shower there If you have a fear of pool tables, probably avoid TH_NK, as there’s one in the Newcastle...

    Advice to Management

    More bananas, you never provide us with enough bananas! And I'm not really sure why there's avocados in the fruit bowl, sort it out! It's a joke! Please keep the Friday chocolate treats though

    I have been working at Th_nk

    Pros

    I have worked at TH_NK in a senior capacity for almost 2 years. I have 15+ yrs experience in the agency industry, having worked for a number of agencies over the years. Some independent. Some smaller. Some bigger. And, truth to be told, none more challenging than TH_NK. But that is simply a reflection of our ambition. So, here’s my honest opinion. Fast-paced environment, modern and forward thinking agency. Challenging...

    Cons

    Possibly top heavy in terms of team seniority, but this is a reflection of the nature of the work. At times under resourced.

    Advice to Management

    Continue in your ongoing pursuit to make this a great place to work

    Varied work, not that stressful. Good team. Good banter.

    Cons

    Sometimes quiet. Very designed focused so not great if you are and engineer.

    I have been working at Th_nk full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I've worked here for the majority of my career and I wouldn't still be here if it wasn't a great place to work. If you are smart, dedicated, hardworking and not afraid to share your opinion, be challenged and challenge others, this is an environment where you will be given opportunities to succeed and progress your career. It's an agency so it's a multi-discipline, fast paced environment and the workload is client...

    Cons

    The pace of the agency can be difficult for some to adapt to. There are the usual constraints; time, budget and scope, and in a client driven environment these can feel more intense than in other environments, this can make deadlines feel tight and additional hours are sometimes required to get a successful outcome. It's a multi-discipline team, so creating a workflow that works for everyone can be a challenge. Getting...

    Advice to Management

    Keep on finding and delivering ambitious work, it can be hard work getting there but the end result is always very satisfying and something to be proud of. Invest in innovation, growing a high performance team and continually improving the way you work. Try and find more leadership time to support that.

    I have been working at Th_nk full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I joined the Company last year and felt part of the team very quickly. Everyone is so passionate and cares about the contribution they make. Those that don't very quickly realise this isn't the right environment for them. The pace at Think is fast and being small, we have to be nimble and often change direction to suit our clients. This obviously has a knock on impact on the teams but we manage this very carefully...

    Cons

    It can be difficult to attract the right talent that share our values and passion.

    Advice to Management

    A huge part of a leadership role is to drive the culture of the company and to reinforce it. The other thing that has changed dramatically at Think [a shift] from command and control to collaboration and teamwork. Keep working on it as it's working.

    I have been working at Th_nk full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I joined TH_NK as a graduate straight from uni, and worked my way up to being a member of the leadership team over a number of years. Throughout this time I worked in both our offices, worked on projects and accounts for almost every industry, was promoted numerous times, managed a team and even had the opportunity to work abroad for 9 months. The variety of work available to be a part of is what kept me at the agency...

    Cons

    It's an agency - by it's nature, agency life can be hard work, especially at pitch times or project crunch times. But in my eyes, you don't join an agency if you want a 9-5 job, you join an agency because you want to work hard, with amazingly smart people, and create brilliant work. It's not a cookie cutter company - the agency is constantly breaking new ground, foraying into new industries and trying their hand at...
