I have been working at Fantasy Interactive full-time (Less than a year)
Hi. Nick here. I have an interesting perspective on working at Fantasy. I was originally Fantasy's client when I worked in Marketing at Google. We hired Fantasy (over RGA, Huge, Razorfish and several other 'hot' boutique agencies) for a multi-million dollar redesign project. I can honestly say that working with Fantasy on the project was my favorite part of my career 3.5 years at Google. I left the Big G in December 2014 (due to my 3.5-4hr roundtrip commute from SF), but I kept in touch with David Martin (owner). Eventually he and I decided to try things out with me coming over to Fantasy as a producer. I've been here for a few months, and I really love it. Yes, I work very hard and standards are high, but that's what I want. It's what helps me learn and grow. At the same time, the office is very comfortable and relaxed (sometimes too relaxed). If you work here you will quickly become a good shot with a Nerf gun. But my #1 favorite thing about working at Fantasy is the people. Teams are very small here. And this has created a very family-like culture both inside the office and outside. So essentially when I joined the company, I instantly made many new friends. David organizes company-sponsored outings (like sailing and go-kart racing), but one thing that I see here that I haven't seen at other places is that employees also organize impromptu gatherings outside of work (like BBQs, karaoke night, surfing, etc.). I've read some pretty messed up stories on here about the company and specific individuals, and from my experience they are completely baseless (and actually kind of funny). Due to their detail and use of specific examples, these stories seem real to someone who doesn't have first-hand information. I'm amazed at skilled some people are at lying. And when reviews are anonymous there's no way to know... so that's why I've attached my name to this one.
Fantasy's current temporary office leaves a lot to be desired (lots of drywall, no conference rooms) although it's in a good location at 3rd and Brannan. Can't wait to move into the new space in a month or two.
