      Pros

      Great, smart people. Transparent company culture. People care about one another. Good amount of flex time and company holidays.

      Cons

      Constantly working with "slim" teams which means you're expected to shoulder the work of multiple people. Clients have the ultimate say. We rarely are able to push back and make the work we want. Timelines are insane.

      Pros

      Want the reigns? They'll give it to you, no matter what level. Be ready to take challenges head on mold the strategy to your own way of thinking. You'll have tons of experts around to ask questions from, smart people to check your logic, and a company that supports you as a human.

      Cons

      The agency model can be tough for some people. There are chances that maybe you get a frustration project.

      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?

      Great but too woke of a company

      Pros

      For the most part really great and smart people which it’s a pleasure to work with. Often interesting and challenging work for large clients. Lot’s of benefits like Summer Fridays, taking days off, and local leadership really seem to care about the people. I’ve made great friends and grown a lot at this company.

      Cons

      Sometimes too much work. Projects feels a bit unorganized for an organization this big and established. Too much political activism. The company keeps inventory of employees skin color and gender across offices, roles and seniority, and openly brags about taking these things into account when hiring. In the end I can’t stay and work for an openly racist and sexist organization like this.

      Pros

      Strong culture, it is "sink or swim" but if you are in then you will be working with some seriously smart people.

      Cons

      - Top heavy structure - The office can be a bit cliquey - A real lack of direction from senior management - Haphazard pitching means lots of crunch time, no pay off, and existing accounts suffer

      Pros

      Good benefits, summer Fridays, pet friendly. Beautiful view. Free beer. Free snacks. Some smart people. Couches as you can take your laptop wherever you like to work.

      Cons

      High turnover rate. Huge promotes non-people type of employees to managerial positions, then Huge demote them after almost half of the team quit. Salary is below market rate.

      The BEST agency you can work for

      Pros

      There's a reason #agencylife is a popular hashtag on social medial. If you're going to live agency life, Huge is the best place to do it. I have never, ever worked with such smart people. Also, the scoping, resourcing and project management are much more adult and proactive than I've ever seen. And Huge does fabulous work you can be proud of. Work-life balance is surprisingly good. Also: snacks, beer, etc. are all good.

      Cons

      The learning curve is steep (sink or swim, people) and leadership is still pretty much male-dominated. I was a manager and was paid fairly, but many on my team were NOT, not even close. Some people are paid 40% below market, and there are no avenues to fix it for them. Agencies usually pay well. Very well. Huge doesn't, and they even took away the retroactivity of salary raises this year and communicated it poorly and in an untimely manner. Being unable to reward and retain great employees by not showing respect and insulting them by not paying them well is a total deal-breaker for managers who care about their teams.
