    Current Employee - Junior Graphic Designer in New York, NY

    I have been working at Anomaly full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    For an entry-level creative: exposure to many different massive-budget projects. Will really cut your teeth. Lots of bougie gifts like free gym trials, insane holiday parties. Good healthcare. Very communal feeling.

    Cons

    Everything else? Designers were all treated as production in my time. 80 hour weeks, no conceptual opportunities. A little top heavy.

        Disapproves of CEO

        I worked at Anomaly full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        Nothing. What a show. if you’re a D- this compnay is probably great fit for you. A bunch of the lowest common denominators thinking they’re great, and congratulating themselves on less than average work.

        Cons

        A bunch of the lowest common denominators thinking they’re the best. If you’ve got a loud mouth and no talent, this company is for you. Ps better show off and talk Waffle, this will inform the next big project strategy. Say it’s amazing even though its average, everyone else will think you’re a winner because no one asks questions. They will clap at anything.

        Advice to Management

        Stop thinking you’re something else other than a mediocre communications company. You’re one of the most d-list agencies available. Shame on you. Invest in something that might actually give you some kind of reputation other than ego and blank promises. What a load of losers and want to be’s. Everyone now knows you’re not an anomaly. What do you provide? Carl, you should be ashamed of the all the time you’ve wasted

        Great and passionate people. Lots to learn at a fast pace. Fun office culture.

        Cons

        No longer keeping the same high creative standards as their original reputation. They say they’re not an ad agency but they really only sell advertising.
