Senior Paid Search Executive (Current Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester3 December 2019
Great place to work they have a really good culture and offer lots of opportunity and training. But generally career advancement and pay rises are slow if you start at a lower level

It's fun and sociable
Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Greater London19 March 2019
It's a nice place to learn but sometimes the management can do better. There are lot of social events. The clients are amazing. Sometimes the working hours can be very long.

Needs Better Mangement
PPC Executive (Former Employee) –  Manchester, Greater Manchester3 January 2019
Great opportunity to learn technical and client management skills.
There is also a strong and fun culture between staff generally, which is likely facilitated by the young team, with most of staff being in their early to mid 20s.
On the negative side, work sometimes becomes too procedural as a result of poor communication between management and teams. This poor communication means that teams also suffer from poor time optimisation and miscommunication.
The performance management process is very corporate and dry with managers prioritising a checkbox style of performance review that seems to lack a human understanding of their juniors abilities and training needs.
Ultimately many of the managers seem incapable of actually managing a team, which causes a very rigid and inflexible working structure. Managers often do too much of the work themselves instead of delegating and managing their team, while juniors often spend too much time doing odd jobs even when managers are swamped with work.
Salaries are not great unless you are planning to stick in the company for the long haul i.e. 5 years+, or come in as a director and most marketers will be able to secure higher salaries at smaller firms and in-house.
A caveat is that the company is generally good at in-house progression, with most people securing a promotion every 2 years or so. With that being said, they tend to externally recruit people with less experience than they would otherwise require for in-house progression.
The directors have done a good job of improving the fortunes of the company in the last couple of
  more... years, however there is still quite a lot of work that needs to be done in order to ensure that teams are effectively run. If the company is going to continue to improve in the long-term, changes will need to continue to be implemented and followed closely.  less
Pros
Hour long lunch, good work/life balance, friendly co-workers, 25 days holiday, in addition to xmas off and bank holidays, great for learning technical knowledge and some client management skills, graduate scheme with general training sessions, opportunities to progress.
Cons
Pay not great, distant managers with poor people management skills, no personally tailored training and unhelpful quarterly review process.

Quantity over Quality
BIDDABLE ACTIVATION PLANNER (Former Employee) –  Stafford, Staffordshire31 August 2018
The company operates on attrition. They don't care how the staff are as long as they get enough output.

Working over is expected and often forced, but no leniency the other way.

The say they offer so little compensation because of the "world class" training they provide. However, this is just people within the office walking through what they do on a day to day basis. Again, this is often forced on more dependable members of the team, without any consideration given to their actual workload.
