Other Employee Reviews for Factory Design Labs

  1. "Factory Review"

    • Career Opportunities

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Factory is a lifestyle company and you will hear that preached by the CEO and others throughout your time there.

    Cons

    There tends to be a very diverse range of talent at Factory. There are a few very strong creatives and developers, but the account team is a revolving door of, mostly, inexperienced people. The hours can be long, but this is an agency, so you should probably expect it.

    Advice to Management

    Take your eyes off the shiny objects for a moment to focus on strategy. And not the 20-20 hindsight strategy that the CEO likes to preach in his keynotes.


  2. "fun, creative environment"

    Pros

    Factory is a great place to grow your career and work with a lot of exciting talent. If an employee is a go getter, opportunities are endless.

    Cons

    The teams at Factory are small, so employees are given lots of work and responsibility. When client deadlines are approaching, you'll be expected to work late if that's what it takes to get the job done.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget about the little people. Recognition can go along way for the individual employee, as well as overall morale in the company.
