    Current Employee, more than 3 years

    Great teams, management is unfocused

    Jan 24, 2016 - Solutions Architect in Brooklyn, NY

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Project teams are as sharp as any I've seen. Great designers, developers, product managers. Really tight process. Extremely high quality work gets done.

    Cons

    Client engagement and department heads live in their own world. Lots of meaningless organizational arrangements and needless layers that add no value and pressure margins.

    No mentorship, no personal growth, no interest in making it better

    Oct 9, 2013 - Senior Project Manager in Brooklyn, NY
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits package; you will be able to bring your dog to the office whenever you want

    Cons

    As most of the reviews point out, HUGE is very cliquey. It's a sink or swim environment, where you will receive no mentoring, and will be blamed for not scaling the learning curve on your own. The company does little to make sure that you will succeed, and as a result HUGE makes a lot of very expensive hiring mistakes. Process-wise it is a mess; word 'agile' is used left and right to describe processes that are anything but.

    No bueño

    Pros

    Nice office space, Sonos in the bathrooms, and dog friendly environment. But the cons outweigh the minimal pros (see below).

    Cons

    Not collaborative except for the small clique of cool kids who are the only ones allowed to contribute. Not a welcoming team environment, so if you haven't worked there for years or come from the Brooklyn office, good luck. Super passive aggressive and straight up bullying behaviour exhibited by those in positions of power.

    Pros

    Incredibly smart people. Pushes the boundaries on innovation. Never satisfied with ok.

    Cons

    Growing really fast and doesn't do a great job of communicating all the changes.

    Run away as fast as you can from the London office

    Feb 5, 2017 -  in London, England
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    If you're a visual designer or a UX designer, you may be fine (ish) and you may actually like it. BUT....

    Cons

    If you do anything else (especially client services) just run away as fast as you can! They have no idea what client services are for...they think it's a 'cold sales' job. The PMs manage the clients and when a project is done you the AM needs to go and sale the next project...it's all a bit bizzarre. Furthermore if you are into website design ONLY, then great... they are okay at it. However they have no skills for anything else. It's not a creative or innovative digital agency...they are just a website design shop. And if you're still thinking that you are up for the challenge... be ready to manage big egos!

    Dismiss at first sight

    Aug 24, 2017 - Anonymous Employee 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Perks, comprehensive health plan and benefits, big client brands, good PTOs and talented people working in the trenches. Office space is nice and comfortable.

    Cons

    Toxic leadership, bad client engagement, in general distrust is the norm. Leadership is high on politics, ego and posing as cool and diligent when in reality there is little or no respect for people doing the actual work on the accounts. Clients are constantly mistreated and that's the main reason there are no follow-up engagements or long term client relationships as they tend to escape to other agencies that are less arrogant, less pricey and actually deliver on time. Don't get lured by the free goodies, excessive alcohol and nice words, it's all crap and if you are not 'likeable' to management, you will be disposed of like used tissue paper. Projects on the tech side are unsophisticated, basically building CMS with ok UX but no transactional capability or leading edge and challenging value propositions. If you are offered a job, poll around your will-be peers and get their candid opinion; most likely they will tell you to dismiss and go somewhere where people are truly honest and nice.

    Not the Huge it once was.

    Sep 7, 2013 - Web Developer in Los Angeles, CA
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - Beer, snacks, outings, bring your pets to work, all the usual benefits, etc. - Used to put out great work - Worked with a lot of talented people through the years

    Cons

    Things used to be great but as soon as some major management changes took place, it started a HUGE downward spiral. Great people were forced out and most of the talented people started to leave as a result. It seemed like anytime a project came around that might have been fun or innovative, they either fired the client or lost the client. You end up working on 12 hour a day projects just to try to win a client, and then you don't or it gets assigned to a different office. I always felt like we were way behind in the industry when it came to technology. We were not quick to take on projects that allowed us to use new software, API's, frameworks, devices, etc. As far as opportunity to advance, there really is none unless you are a project manager, UX designer, you are BFF's with one of the partners or you threaten to quit in the middle of a big project. It was a fantastic place to work a few years ago but turned into a very depressing office where people hated coming to work, were dissatisfied with leadership and had no excitement for the projects.

    Not what it used to be

    Jan 11, 2021 - Analyst in Los Angeles, CA

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    free food, great people (co-workers), location, pet friendly, Some what inclusive

    Cons

    Literally everything else that isn't mentioned in the PROs. Employees are looked at numbers on a board as apposed to what value they bring to the company. If you're on the higher end of the salary spectrum you won't last very long only to be replaced by 2 or more juniors to do the same job. Make it make sense. The work is great except they over promise and under deliver so everyone is stressed out of their minds. I enjoyed working there for about a year. There's a lot of really smart people its upper management that is the issue.

    Great company but ATL office does not have the greatest track record

    Jan 12, 2020 - Recruiting Coordinator 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    - amazing perks (free snacks and catered breakfasts/lunches) and work culture - great boss and my team did a splendid job with my onboarding process - cordial coworkers - really cool office space and awesome hours of operation - amazing PTO structure and flexible work-from-home policy

    Cons

    - the work itself was pretty one-dimensional (coming from full cycle recruiting, this work was more administrative-based but I still learned a lot) - a lot of working remotely (my boss was in a different office and most of our team was based in the Brooklyn HQ) - salary was on the lower side than what I was used to - not an ideal commute if you live outside the perimeter and the parking garage fee is expensive - the seating arrangement within the office is pretty spaced out so it felt isolating most of the time

    Smart people, good projects

    Sep 14, 2022 - Copywriter 
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Enjoyed the collaborative atmosphere and top-notch resources available.

    Cons

    The ups and downs of winning / losing accounts sometimes threw the office into a hiring and layoffs cycle. But that's pretty typical at a lot of agencies.
