So my bf works at one and my mate at the other. I don’t know about WK. I’m out for drinks with both so here’s what I got told D5: Dylan is hard to read. Kind of a genius, working class, boy done good. Champagne socialist. All about cultural value. Big, long term ideas. Rarely in the office. Other strat directors are all awesome peeps. It’s a very small team. No women. Potentially in need of more Jr support. They like fun, uber creative, smart planners. Nobody worries about the Accenture thing as they’ve had honest chats and will have more £ to make good work. Downside is the strat work isn’t going to land too many Effies right now as it’s a startup vibe. Anomaly: Stu Smith a real brainiac. He really examines a problem. Anyone he hired 2015-2019 is going to be a baller as he’s hard to please (“but has one favourite”). Strats all work fairly independently. One intern and one midweight. There is a new head of department below him and who is very marmite. He’s not liked by everyone - “confident but abrasive.” Smith has taken a huge step back. As of Sept 2019, there’s only one woman in the team left. Worth a try though. Deep brand thinking. Neither felt there was anything too toxic. HTH.
