    Pros

    Some benefits from being a global agency, cool WeWork location.

    Kontras

    The leadership charge of the NY office is not fit for purpose and doesn’t know how to build a well-functioning team. That plus a general unpleasant environment (as noted elsewhere in the reviews) should have you looking elsewhere.

    Pros

    A variety of quite interesting clients, terrific mentors and amazing teammates.

    My manager was one of the best I have ever worked with during my career, and am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with this person.

    Very well-organized social events both in the office and offsite.

    Nice office in a highly convenient location right off of 128.

    Kontras

    I didn't learn as much as I would have liked. Some of the people in charge had their favorite employees, and you weren't one of them, it was difficult to advance your career. Moving on was the only choice.

    Rat an das Management

    Treat all your employees as you would want to treated yourself.

    Pros

    The people at LEWIS are amazing - they made it worth showing up to work.

    There is an opportunity to grow and climb the ranks if you are aggressive and put in the work.

    Excellent amount of PTO - if you can find a time you are allowed to take it.

    It's a global company which can give you exposure to other markets if you are lucky enough to be on one of the few international accounts.

    Kontras

    LEWIS is growing, the profitable agency - but for all the wrong reasons.

    LEWIS has slowly been drained of lots of its best employees due to constant overworking and a lack of recruitment efforts. The average team members are spread very thin and forced to work extremely hard and long hours - more so than your typical agency. This has caused a poor and negative working environment which is especially sad because the employees are exceptionally bright, honest and good people.

    Senior management isn't concerned about the impact this is having on employees - the emphasis is strictly put on client retention. The concern is profitability, profitability, profitability without a single thought about the employee experience.

    The endless employee turnover has made it almost too difficult to request PTO because there aren't enough people to cover accounts.

    The executive teams fancy's itself as being transparent with their employees because they put out regular updates on employee departures, new business and internal initiatives. However, the sad truth is they are working employees ragged until they leave, all in the name of profitability.

    Lack of a formal training program of any kind.

    Rat an das Management

    Take a second to recognize your employees are the ones keeping your clients happy. If your employees aren't happy, your clients won't be happy for long. You need to invest actual MONEY in your teams - new teams, time off, equipment, benefits, bonuses, etc.

    Young employees joining the company need training and access to managers/seasoned employees who can give them in-depth advice to help them learn and grow. As it is now, you've got your managers spread so thin, they have absolutely no time to help junior staff develop.

    Like it or not, the world is changing and people demand feeling valued at work now - don't just tell them they are valued, show them that.

    Good clients, some good people, good client roster

    Pros

    Really loved the WeWork space and the Soho location. Coworkers were nice. Benefits were great, pay was average.

    Kontras

    Leadership in this office is not good. Tyrannical is a word I would use. People are dropping like flies and will continue to do so because it's such an inhospitable environment. I feel like the other offices may have better cultures with better, kinder leadership (although from reading other reviews on here maybe not). If you are dead set on this line of work, find another company, or if you are dead set on Lewis, find another location. I can't describe how much I hated it, and I know I wasn't the only one.

    Rat an das Management

    Fix the leadership in this office to actually represent the fun, flexible, cool agency life that Lewis says its all about. I felt like a work horse and nothing more.

    Pros

    Fast moving agency with a few creative clients. Generally the team working here are fun and they have a nice location in downtown San Francisco.

    Kontras

    The CEO can be a narcissistic, mercurial tyrant. Leadership is trying to change things but this company is focused on making money at the expense of its employees.

    Rat an das Management

    Start valuing your employees

    Positive Prognose
    Befürwortet Geschäftsführer

    Ich arbeite in Vollzeit bei LEWIS Global Communications (Weniger als ein Jahr)

    Pros

    - A good place to learn - that's partly because of a recently up-weighted focus on people / career development, but also because senior people get stuck in and involve more junior staff in nearly all client sessions

    - LEWIS is independent. So it can invest where it sees fit and be flexible. Not being beholden to a holding company or private equity makes a difference

    - Senior management is open and transparent with regular updates and are willing to invest in team spirit - an example here is not only summer and Christmas parties, but also the retox party which takes place every year late January

    - Regular resourcing meetings with team leaders mean that everyone's time and allocations are kept an eye on, so people aren't overloaded. This is probably reflected in working hours. If someone stays til 6.30/45 that's thought of as a late night, whereas in my previous agency, that was pretty much standard home-time

    Kontras

    - I don't love the location (Westminster), but it's likely we'll be moving in the not too distant future when Millbank Tower turns residential

    - It seems to have taken a while to get the new career development proposals off the ground. In that time we lost some good people and so I think this should have come sooner

    Rat an das Management

    - Ensure line management constantly looks ahead - not just how are we doing, but are we on track for where we want to be and what do we need to learn or experience to get there

    - It's good that we have exposure to Chris Lewis in paper reviews, but London is the HQ and Chris is here most of the time. It would be good to hear more from him on trends and his thinking. We have talks from internal and external speakers, so why not involve Chris in this?

    Pros

    - Great people to work with: smart, quick, curious and committed to delivering excellent work
    - Some fantastic recent hires across the business are injecting new energy and giving different and interesting perspectives
    - As agencies go, there is a good work life balance - there definitely isn't a stay late culture. Everyone knows that agency world (particularly when it's global) doesn't just run 9-5 and there are lots of agencies out there really do pile on the pressure and the hours.
    - Everyone is empowered and expected to take some responsibility for their career development. There are plenty of opportunities (including the chance to spend time in other market offices across Europe, the US and Asia) for those who want to take them.
    - Open to flexible working at all levels
    - The social team has done a really good job, particularly recently, of coming up with various events and chances for everyone to get together
    - We're working more and more across teams, combining all the expertise we have in-house, which is a good way of keeping things interesting and also means everyone continues to learn

    Kontras

    - Sometimes, new ideas and initiatives are introduced but not followed through
    - Internal comms could be improved
    - There could be a bit more focus on personal career development plans (which are apparently in the pipeline now)
    - More external training would be helpful

    Rat an das Management

    - Keep communicating with the wider team
    - Follow through on new initiatives and keep everyone updated
    - Keep hiring great people: don't compromise on standards
    - Be brave: building for the future isn't always easy but stick to a clear strategy and it will pay off
