I have a colleague who is notorious for setting up meetings <15-30 minutes before it starts. They’re not as much critical as they are just simply spur of the moment and last minute due to her lack of planning. Huge pet peeve. Anyone else experience something similar?

    Huge Disappointment

    Pros

    Their reputation greatly precedes them

    Cons

    I found it to be nothing but a Huge Disappointment®. Maybe you can put that on the new branding. Mismanaged, toxic culture, and an air of douchebaggery that stopped being cool 10 years ago, but it's still celebrated in their all hands meetings.

    Lots of potential, but...

    Pros

    Office culture is very welcoming, especially the admin and onboarding. Location is great, and everyone is friendly.

    Cons

    My creative director wasn’t the friendliest. In fact, it was difficult to ask questions, or gain clarity/direction without dealing with eye rolls or ego. Unfortunately, IMO, that’s not great creative leadership. The big ideas are cared about here. Office space was cramped, but that’s because they were growing fast. This does lead to unclear direction, and the need to dive in with little feedback or direction.

    Not much room to grow in the advertising sector

    Pros

    Great office culture and really amazing people to work with. Great pay and benefits.

    Cons

    On the advertising side you never actually make any work. You spend most of your time spinning wheels to get anything done and nothing comes to fruition.

    A very wrong place to work with

    Pros

    – Location – Bright office – Nice sofas

    Cons

    – No process and/or structure for actual design work – No plan or management of the projects, everything seems to be a chaos – Working late due to the lack of minimum structure/process – People in charge of the agency don't seem to care and adds more problems to the work instead of help – Very political agency – The London office is submissive of the New York office which creates a lot of tension and there are no team player spirit but competitive and ego

    Pros

    Great work, great people. Account and production teams are strong, but creative really leads the ship.

    Cons

    Too big. Too many personalities to navigate. Political battlefield. UX full of really aggressive personalities. Everyone there thinks they are a creative director or the hottest thing in the industry.

    My 5th agency in my career, and it's the best decision I've ever made.

    Pros

    Working at HUGE not only looks great on your resume, but they give you the projects you want. The structure from a general overview is standard: Partners -> Senior Management -> Leads -> Associates. Where the company shines in structure is per project. It is a creatively driven company where creative almost trumps every decision internally (for better, or worse). Art directors are powerful managers within a project and represent HUGE better so then almost anyone else on the team (again, for better or worse). Leading teams and projects are easy because of the friendly and respectful, laid back environment. It has the feel of a smaller, nimble agency, with the backbone of a much larger beast. The partners are friendly and approachable, and have adopted a standard of "extreme transparency". There are hardly any politics and b.s. and in the end, your questions are answered if one exists, and if it doesn't, a genuine "I don't know" suffices. Any and all issues are held and discussed together as a company (awesome for an agency that tops over 300+ employees world wide). The operations team is probably the best in the industry and keeps this well oiled machine running at optimal efficiency. Talent is often noticed and no idea is a bad idea. Compensation is fair, and raises are the norm. Benefits are decent, and the projects to pick from are plentiful. Bravo HUGE. For once, I really feel like the agency I work for is fighting for me and on my side, rather than banding together with my co-workers to complain about "working for the man".

    Cons

    Because of the company's large nature, sometimes people get over looked, especially the "vets". it is growing at an incredible rate, almost unthinkable in today's climate. There are literally new faces every week, and being able to learn and know everyone new is just not a priority for upper management (which is fine, I guess). Sometimes it feels that the company is growing so fast and it makes me nervous whether or not it's too fast for its own good. Momentum has to stop some time, and I fear when it does, it may back fire. There are a lot of dogs in the office. And often it smells. The actual work environment is so-so ... it's white walled, and hardly any color. Very minimal, and sometimes it works against your ability to get into a zone.
