I worked at Factory Design Labs full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great culture. Fun and entertaining. I didn't appreciate that at the time but the company really handled the lost of clients in a great manner. They tried to take care of employees that had lost their jobs and overall were pretty well run. Great at change management. Cutting edge technology at every level. Great learning opportunities. You get to be involved in many aspects of the company and wear multiple hats. Management listens to your ideas.

Cons

Some people took themselves too seriously. Some desk squatters that sit at their desk all night just cause they think it makes them look good. Quite a bit of favoritism. Better employees have been constantly passed on or even fired for less capable employees. Lost some really really good people because of political reasons.

Advice to Management

Keep the great culture. Thanks for the great experience.

    I worked at Factory Design Labs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great location and paid parking. Workspace is modern and affable. Excellent music. Account management is strong for a digital ad agency.

    Cons

    - Took the position because I was told a major client was signed - this was not true
    - Losing this client resulted in major layoffs, but the details we poorly handled
    - This pattern of client loss has persisted since
    - Communication from Sr Management is untrustworthy
    - Lost a lot of solid technical talent
    - At this time the agency appears rudderless, not learning from the past

    Advice to Management

    Adapt to the new world.

    Pros

    Amazing talent, global clients, freedom of expression, culture of creativity...

    Cons

    Risky business. They hire on large amounts of accounts and creatives with intentions of holding on to and/or expanding their client roster, but if one leaves (like one did while I was employed), you're gone. They love the layoffs, so be prepared.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the talent you have under the roof and don't loose them to a bad business model.
