    Hold on.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThe leadership is great. They're smart, talented and ambitious. Its a great environment to be challenged and grow with some extremely smart people. Its fast paced and sometimes wild - especially during the version celebrations.

    ConsThe fast pace, wild nature might not suit everyone depending on how you view and value a work-life balance. The work is great but can suck you into long hours. This is the culture however and shouldn't be changed.

    crazy town

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsFun, young, lots of parties, rock and roll agency

    ConsLack of seriousness about the work, the medium, the quality of the work - need to get out of the midwest.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet out of the midwest - hire better writers and researchers rather than party boys and girls.

    Alcohol Available

    Senior Designer (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsMany positive, hard-working employees. Advancement for those willing to work their face off. Forced fun, young & spirited work environment.

    ConsLack of integrity, honesty. "Transparency" tends to cloak reality. Focus on billing rather then quality work or craftsmanship. In general, lack of trust between departments. You must sing in front of the entire company if you miss a time sheet. Lots of big plans and little followthrough (organizational ADD).

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider paying into employee 401ks and taking their commitment to you more seriously. Try making the work environment friendly for those with families. Work won't stop feeling college level until you stop hiring strictly 20's out of college.

    Working for an agency.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThe engineering team was super smart and great to work with.

    ConsClicky, and a lot of arrogance. If you weren't working more than your 40 hours a week, you weren't working enough. Forced to work 9 to 5 schedule.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    A lot of talent goes through space150

    Developer (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsWork with a lot of smart people on interesting projects. A good way to fill your portfolio with some great looking work. Parties, if that's your thing.

    ConsSet your work/life boundaries right away, or you will be working late nights and weekends all the time. Extremely extroverted culture; introverts will get worn out by the work environment at space150. CEO is a womanizing clown who is blinded by ego, completely out of touch with the company, and graces you with his presence once a week - intoxicated at 9am monday.

    Fantastic Culture

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe culture and people are fantastic, beer cooler / bar is a serious plus!

    ConsThe play hard / work hard mentality is fair and I agreed with it, but the "play" never quite lived up to the work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour people are your best assets. Invest in them.

    Work hard, play hard.

    Creative Tech (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThere are lots of friendly people who work there, which leads to a very social atmosphere. The management is open to change. Their IT systems are the most advanced I've seen at a digital agency.

    ConsVery few people will ever see the work you do there. They only have a few national clients. When the client's money runs out, you have to stop working on the project regardless of how close it is to finished.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet more clients on retainer.

    Fast paced, digitaliciousness, space150 is the digital agency of Minneapolis.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsThe best part of space150 is the energy and vibe that the office has. At the backbone of this is a technology department that doesn't back away from any barrier, timeline or problem. The creative energy is amped by CCO, Founder and lightning rod WJJ, who brings a work hard play hard attitude to the agency. And yet all of that is balanced perfectly by the keen and super smart CEO Marcus. This place has superstars at all corners and the opportunities you get to create head turning work are fantastic for young advertising professionals.

    ConsWith all of the opportunities and excitement that come from space, it is also taxing mentally. Late hours are normal, but the passion people have is the reason the place beats the way it does. Similarly, there are several office perks that make staying late something that isn't a deal breaker, the open policy on the in office bar, the always stocked fridge, and free meals after 7:00pm make staying late more forgiving. It's fast paced and tenacious, and you either sink or swim. Not a con, it's just the way it is.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe brilliance of space150 lies within the energy that the place has. This is constantly continued through the reinvention of space150 every 150 days. It's also perpetuated by the continuous influx of young talent into the agency. Just make sure to try and retain some of that young talent and not burn them out.

    A good opportunity to learn.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    ProsVery fun work environment. There is a good balance of working hard and having fun. It's a great group of people and you get to know your coworkers very well.

    ConsDrinking is a big part of the culture there. If you aren't into the party scene you might feel a bit out of place at times.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSpend more time getting to know the junior level people. Ask for feedback from your employees on how satisfied they are with how things are being done.

    a fast-paced environment filled with some of the smartest and most talented people in the country

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Minneapolis, MN

    Prosfun people working hard and doing great work. entrepreneurial environment where you can make things happen no matter hour position/title. flat structure with plenty of room for growth.

    Consvery casual environment that doesn't suit some people well. you are given flexibility in how you approach your work, which doesn't work for people who want rigid structure. fast pace is more than some people can handle.
