    I have been working at FutureBrand full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The place manages to continually punch above its weight-class. And it's managed to avoid getting too mired in it's own 'corporateness'. Sure you'll find the usual array of templates, job tiers and bureaucratic nonsense but there's also a tremendous amount of flexibility to cut your own path. The trick is to genuinely take an entrepreneurial stance and remain respectful as you campaign internally.

    Cons

    The 'international' thing that attracts so many to a big agency works better with the European offices than it seems to for North American workers. Some cultural rifts between the 2 capitals of London and New York can be noticed. But even that is softening, with more opportunities to work outside of one's own P&L.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid growing too quickly if it means that leadership alignment suffers. It's been a treat watching leadership work as an inspired team over the past 3 years and the client results show for it. Also, promote from within when possible. There's a perception that the good jobs always go to outsiders.

    Senior Designer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FutureBrand in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Several weeks after my initial contact, I was called in for an interview.

    Spoke with three head creatives over the course of about an hour and half. First (Creative Director) seemed very down to earth and straight forward. Was really happy with my work but seemed bored with his job/studio. Seemed unenthused about the company.

    Second and third meets were both extremely positive and said I showed great range and creativity and would be a good fit. All in all a really positive interview and said I 'was just what we need'. I left feeling very positive about the whole thing.

    I followed up with an email a few days later, thanking them for the opportunity and their time etc and was eventually replied to with a 'no thanks' email, that didn't really explain why. Pretty disappointing.
