    Pros

    Every company has smart people, but Fahrenheit has managed to connect and combine different types of intelligence in such a way that I think each person is actually in awe of every other person on almost a daily basis.

    Beyond the culture, F212 teaches you a process for how to invent. Management has broken innovation down into a defined discipline that can be taught and live-tested with some of the biggest brands on the planet. It's trial by fire at times, to be sure - but I don't think any company could have better prepared me for becoming an entrepreneur.

    At the end of the day, F212 teaches you how to think in a way that I'm not sure any other company really can. I have no doubt that when I look back on the whole of my career - the five years I spent at F212 will be my most formative.

    Cons

    It's hard work. And I think sometimes the idea of the place going in (the brand, doing innovation work, cool clients, etc) makes people forget the fact that it is, in fact, a job. And as with any job, there are some less than fulfilling day-to-day realities (lack of 100% visibility into management decisions, the occasional menial task, etc)

    But that's true anywhere. More true in most places.

    Advice to Management

    Raise some outside capital to scale the bottom of the pyramid in order to give greater leverage and room to grow for the middle.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Fahrenheit 212 (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I first talked with someone on the phone then got in contact with another employee. We then had a 30 minute phone call about my background experiences and what I was looking for in a company. He asked why I chose their company and why innovation. He asked about my background and how it was related to the field. He then shared the culture and style of the office and shared a taste of what the office was like. However, he seemed to be in a hurry and stuttered/repeated questions. He had some question moments before asking me to clarify or repeat myself. While he claimed the employees to be very genuine and friendly, he seemed a bit fake with a cold personality.
