AKQA Employee

"Overall, it just seemed that the media side of the office really needed to be lead by someone that has more business sense. I wouldn’t recommend this place because there isn’t any advancement and no training. It really lacks thought leadership and innovation."

"AKQA SF was a great agency a year ago until WPP bought AKQA and became bad influence with its operations. Early 2014 all the director and managers within the department left the company and got replaced by other branch. The tech department has become a sinking ship since then."
