What are the best and worst things about your company?
The people are brilliant: intriguing, inspiring, push your capabilities to teach you, but equally great fun to go to the pub with. Long hours for lower levels of pay than other industries.

What are the best and worst things about your company?
Being part of a large group of companies means you are exposed to a lot of different types of people, disciplines and expertise. It's great because you can learn so much about different types of communications and innovations in different sectors, be it tech, sponsorship, advertising or digital. You're always hearing about new things that are going on. This includes training and 'inspiration sessions' that everyone is welcome to and are always interesting.There is quite a lot of tension between different departments (e.g. planning and creative) who don't always work collaboratively. This seems to be because there isn't a very flat working structure and it is very hierarchical. It's good in some ways because decisions are made quickly but means that certain very experienced people are revered at all costs, regardless of new ideas and ways of thinking.
