      Draining to say the least

      Pros

      Employee benefits are fantastic. Allowances, HR initiatives and freebies are great. Clients are great additions to your CV and you do learn a lot.

      Cons

      You will be worked to the bone. Almost impossible to have work life balance. Expect tasks over the weekend, at least ten “I need this in 15 minutes” requests on a daily basis and calls back-to-back for 4 hours. Needless to say, overtime is a norm. Don’t expect to enjoy the sun, you’ll rarely be able to leave your desk in peace. Colleagues can be very superficial and almost plastic at times. Senior management take the time to listen but they can come across as very mechanical. Everyone is drowning in one way or another. Lastly, the kissassery at the place is off the charts. Pucker up if you’re thinking of being a part of the client servicing teams. Final gripe - the pc given to staff is a joke. It’s an archaic toastbox with WiFi capabilities.

      Headquarters out of touch with Asia

      Pros

      Advancement opportunities are good for those who play the game well

      Cons

      claims to be different, in reality just another American agency trying to be relevant in a continent it doesn’t even pretend to understand. Strangely colonialist language used in internal communications, such as calling Singapore “the jewel in the crown of our APAC offering”.
