I have been working at Fortune Cookie

Pros

Here are some reasons to work with Fortune Cookie:

1. Opening hours are from 10AM to 6PM.
2. Central location.
3. Plenty of office space
4. Professional atmosphere
5. Flexible allowances with working from home.
6. Family oriented

Cons

Working at Fortune Cookie is a priviledge but employees are asked to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. The procedures that are installed in the business can be tedious but ultimately make the company stronger and it's offering second to none.

    I worked at Fortune Cookie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good tech and design expertise, decent plan for career development. Good communication between international offices and people are driven to deliver something special and take pride in their work.

    Cons

    Some internal processes adversely affect quality, e.g. under-selling. Some conflict between feeling like a small agency but introducing more corporate ideals - felt like a number at points and not valued.

    Egotistical management, awful creative and a depressing place to work

    I worked at Fortune Cookie full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The working hours are possibly the only pro

    Cons

    There always seemed to be an air of depression as people hated their jobs, the structure and the management style. Creatively the agency is led from an agenda set out over a decade ago with strategic/creative thinking the last on the agenda. Budgets where whittled away by the account teams having chewed through the budgets with internal meetings and planning.
    I always felt that the management team had their own agenda and it wasn't about creativity.
