Pros

Factory is a really big family. The teams work together on behalf of our clients and everyone helps each other. People work extremely hard here as they always want to deliver for Factory and the clients. It's a work hard, play hard culture. People either thrive in the organization or quickly Get ejected. There is no room for creative egos or people who don't get their hands dirty. Everyone here is in it to win.

Cons

A service business is always hard no matter where you work. The hours and client demands can be too overwhelming for some. Factory is quick to promote you if you are really good and quick to exit you are not.. It's that simple. You have to be awesome to make it at Factory.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work. Your past growth and successes speak for themselves. Factory is a really cool place, like no other agency out there. Thank you for the opportunity to work here.

    Pros

    Amazing office culture. Plenty of employee perks and generous use of company facilities. Amazing place for an entry level position like myself. The higher ups are incredibly receptive and approachable. I work very closely with my superiors and have personal relationships with people of all levels in all departments. Awesome client list and big time opportunities!

    Cons

    The turn over rate is normal for the ad world!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for talking to the people on the bottom of the totem pole! Awesome to get face time with all of you and make a place for myself in an impressive company so early in my career.

    Pros

    If you've ever worked in the outdoor or action sports industry, you know they hate traditional advertising. Factory is the same, there is a different way of doing things here. It's not about water-cooler talk of what other agencies are up to, it's about being focused on creating work you are proud of and finding insights that speaks to core consumers to call bullsh*t when work is not authentic.

    Cons

    It's a passionate business. People work really hard. Emotion can lead to a bad break up in any relationship. In the past, there has been some negative blood that ran through the building, but those people have left. The building feels alive and healthy. Everyone is trying their best and there's a great sense of community.

    The bad press on Factory sucks. It misrepresents all the hard work and genuine effort people put into their jobs everyday.
