    You work with interesting people on big named accounts

    I have been working at Huge full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn a lot, quickly. People are smart and willing to help if you ask. Huge is unlike any other agency at which I've worked in that we definitely try to approach work strategically and from a user perspective and ambitiously take-on the latest and greatest in tech & design. Work/life balance is generally good. Vibe is improving after senior leadership turmoil over the past year.

    Cons

    There isn't a clear professional development track here - you have to be a hand-raiser to get good work and prove your worth. There's sometimes a tension between client services and other disciplines - client services can commit the team to working inefficiently by delivering unnecessary work.

    Advice to Management

    Decide who we want Huge to be and the type of work that we want to pitch and create.

    I have been working at Huge full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - New management brings new opportunities to the agency
    - A great open-office layout that promotes creativity
    - Dog friendly (Doesn't get better than that in NY)
    - Agency is growing - new open positions for almost all offices/teams
    - Amazing talent in all departments that encourage you to produce the best work possible

    Cons

    - Leadership could work better together as one cohesive unit
    - Internal promotions need to happen quicker to retain great talent

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to be transparent to the agency. Keeping all levels looped in to what's happening agency-wide is a positive
    - Continue the AMA sessions so employees feel comfortable to come to the c-suite with questions + concerns

    I have been working at Huge full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The commitment from the Sr. Leadership to mentor and help their employees grow is unlike most companies I have worked at. They geniunely care about the people.

    Cons

    Huge has been growing, and is undergoing some growing pain. It wants to be too many things. Integrated marketing, product development, AI, etc. It needs a focus.

    Advice to Management

    Huge is no longer just a product agency as we all know it, but I don't know how many people can definitively say they know Huge's new identity. Focus on that. If user-centricity seems to differentiate Huge from the other shops, we need to find a way to productize and operationalize it.

    Pros

    Unique product / UX culture. Very user-centric. Brilliant individuals. Amazing client projects.

    Cons

    Management turnover. Sometimes ambitious to a point of distraction.

    Advice to Management

    Set a course and commit to resources to specific milestones.

    I have been working at Huge full-time

    Pros

    I've worked at Huge's DC office for 2+ years, and have found an endless number of opportunities to learn, grow, and be my best self in a work environment filled with smart, ambitious, and wonderful people. I'm confident that whenever I approach a problem, as long as I give it my all, my coworkers will be there to support my work whether it is a success or failure.

    Huge's multi-office network is also highly collaborative, and the company is very supportive of offices working together. I've frequently described DC as a 50 person office, with the capabilities and knowledge of 1,000 employees.

    Cons

    Working teams are generally very small by design, and can combine with the fast-paced nature of many projects to create high-stress environments with little warning.

    Advice to Management

    Continue being accessible to your employees, and work collaboratively with them on projects, rather than just providing oversight on said work.

    "Most insulting salary process I've ever experienced"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Comp & Benefits

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Huge full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employed (At the poverty level for NYC).

    Cons

    HR will do everything and anything they can to pay you as little as possible. I've been at Huge with stellar reviews for 2 years and was basically laughed out of the room after asking for a 10k bump (which still would have put me about 15k below the industry average based on my performance, experience level, education level, reviews) If you're looking for a "get what you deserve" or "ask and you will receive" workplace, this is not it. I have changed titles twice since being here and have received ZERO comp change despite having MANY discussions about it with managers (all of whom asked for it on my behalf) and HR (who have only ever said no with no explanation). Unacceptable and completely insulting both as a woman and a dedicated employee.

    Advice to Management

    A solid review should mean an annual raise or bonus-always! Solids review 2 years running and no raise or bonus: unacceptable.

    Pros

    smart people
    fun decor and environment

    Cons

    trying to find itself
    no clear vision
    people leaving by the droves and not being replaced
    allocation can be 200% on some projects and the pace is brutal
