    I worked at 180LA as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    They have adidas. They have good coffee.

    Cons

    They're a hybrid agency, leftover TBWA San Francisco, design firm. Run by a guy from the printing business in Amsterdam for the original owner of 180 in the Netherlands. They have a lot of attitude and not much appreciation for the California culture. More like they want to buy into the California scene and look the part - but they really don't want to be here. It's very political. If the main guy doesn't like you, you're gone tomorrow. And he's got a lot of prejudices and uptight ideas. They've moved like 3 times in Santa Monica. If you're desperate work here. Be prepared to get exploited. But keep looking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just go back to Amsterdam. LOL
