    Advice to Management

    be transparent.

    I worked at Huge full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some good team members, lots of cultural opportunity

    Cons

    Terrible on-boarding experience, no active management or care for team building, unclear goals and expectations, a bit cold and heartless of a company culture

    Advice to Management

    Really look into management and how it’s conducted. After speaking with many Managers on the team, there is a major oversight problem at Huge. Skills need to be actively developed and done so in a positive and humane way. To set expectations that are not clearly defined, to give different people different rules, and to have no sense of care with personal development is massively problematic.

    There is also no sense of team across the company. Having fun all staffs and clubs around does not a team make.

    If working in a positive environment where there’s care for the individual as well as the work, Huge isn’t quite for you.

    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
