What are the best and worst things about your company?
The training and opportunities for career development. You get to work on world class campaigns for brands that are household names. The agency is at the forefront of innovation and it feels like there's a lot of ambition, which makes it a really exciting place to work. The people and the company culture are fantastic. Everyone is so lovely and it feels like the agency really cares about you as an individual. Also did I mention AMV throws the best parties?! Because it is such a large agency sometimes there can be a lot of admin at junior level. It takes a while to be trusted with real responsibility.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
- The people, everyone is so friendly and happy to help. - AMV really look after you from the beginning. Life as a grad starts with some great training and introductions to all areas of the business. - It is an amazing creative atmosphere, there are always exciting new things going on and it's great to be a part of it.- My only complaint would be the salary.

The people make the culture here great . The work is constantly exciting. Most surprisingly, I've yet to feel annoyed if I have to work late because what I'm doing is actually really interesting.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Great culture of creativity. It's a forward thinking, progressive agency. The office isn't the most inspiring of spaces.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people & the company culture. This is the kind of job that makes you happy to get out of bed in the morning to come in. Pay & progression - this is very much an industry wide issue rather than an AMV issue though.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Great atmosphere which is really inclusive with lots going on. Almost feels like you're back at university again. Everyone I've worked with has been so helpful in teaching me how everything works and introducing more and more responsibility when I'm ready for it rather than just overloading it all at once. Love the atmosphere in the office, find it really easy to work as there is different areas for different moods to work in and this really suits my style of working. Great company perks from important stuff like private health to just as important stuff like free crisps. Quality of work and drive to make the best ads possible makes you feel enthusiastic about what you're doing. In some departments more than others it's hard to see a clear path of career progression and what you need to do to get there. Get into work early and leave late most days, so long hours, and hard work, but there is also so much fun and a great atmosphere so doesn't feel like a negative.
