    Pros

    A vision for the future based on getting the best out of different skill sets to solve emerging business and creative challenges A strong identity and brand (Mostly) smart and talented people A culture of being hard on work, not each other

    Cons

    Evolving capabilities can make it hard for some to wrap their heads around what Huge is as a company and where it's going. Operational agility can lead to functional silos.

    Surround by tremendous talented people and could learn from them. Also HUGE has intern weekly learning sessions that invite directors to give a speech.

    Cons

    Intern program could be more systematic.

    Pros

    Cool office, nice foodie perks, cute dogs, very talented people

    Cons

    It went from a digital product focus to just another marketing, advertisement driven agency over the last few years. This means that decisions are being to please clients more than to make an actual functional product. Still putting reasonable work through the door, but who know how long this will last.

    Not all bad but mostly

    Pros

    Amazing work and clients. Really, really talented people to learn from. Some of the best, for now. There are nice perks like lunches and happy hours quite often. If you buckle down and stick it out, great things can come of it. Great for your portfolio and CV.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is very low and stars to take its toll early. You arent required to work 60 hour weeks like I did but culturally, there is a certain unspoken understanding to do so most of the time. Upper management has little to no idea what they are doing or how to do it. The place seems to be run by children for the most part. As far as bonuses go, you will likely never get anything unless you are one of the "elites," another problem within the culture of huge. Everyone is not created and treated equally. You are either a golden child or you are just another body for the bidding.

    A company in rapid decline... very sad.

    Pros

    Some very smart and talented people, especially at the junior and mid-level, though most of those people are leaving in droves. Dog friendly offices, amazing employer branding, though it's mostly a facade. Work life balance for some is great, others not so much. Really varies by team/department. Historically a strong agency, but that is swiftly changing.

    Cons

    Huge is an operational disaster. Executive team are all incredibly immature and have no idea how to run a global business. They've formed an impenetrable clique of the old guard and bully the rest of the agency, including the executive talent they hire and fire at a whim. Egos are out of control and leadership don't acknowledge their faults. Nothing this company does is proactive or strategic, everything is reactionary and haphazard, including laying off Huge swaths of the workforce and closing offices frequently, only to realize they don't have the talent to deliver work the next week. The one thing they are good at is minimizing media attention to these layoffs, though in truth the company lost about 1/3 of its workforce in 2017 alone. The work is suffering massively. It's all about $ at this point, so the company will take on tons of boring accounts just to keep the lights on. Huge fumbles on delivery frequently and many clients are pulling their business altogether from the agency.

    Bad as in bad, not good.

    Dec 29, 2017 - Experience Director in Brooklyn, NY

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Huge has managed to attract and hire many highly skilled / talented people in all areas of design and strategy. The level of fit and finish is much higher than other places I have worked, especially on the visual design side of things. People are always willing to give 110% to make things happen as best they can. Finally, you'd be hard pressed to find someone there who will tell you 'No' to a big idea. Huge taught me the value of having a vision (without reality or substance, unfortunately). It's a good place to do a bunch of flashy, shallow work for big brands for a couple of years to boost your portfolio and resume. The benefits are pretty good, including time off policy. The salary wasn't bad either. Brooklyn office is ok but fairly generic. If you have a chance to visit, take note of the fake 'smart office' iPads they have on all of the conference rooms. It really sums Huge up. You can't do anything on them (book a room, checkin, etc.) and some poor person in IT has to go around and change their battery packs every day because they're not hard wired to power. Though that didn't stop the company from including a photo and 'smart office' capability in their presentation decks.

    Cons

    Oh man, where to begin. This place is a complete mess, as is prescribed from the top down in their self proclaimed 'culture of chaos'. There's not a single thing that happens that seems to make sense or considers the best interest of the client or the people doing the work 'on the ground'. To be clear, it's not a creative company. There's not a single creative person in an executive level position. They're all former client services people. The couple of people who were in creative executive roles (including CCO) were unceremoniously fired last year, then never replaced (common occurrence at Huge). There are a couple of low-level, puppet creative execs with good intentions, but they're essentially ineffective. Top management is toxic, ultra cliquey and honestly don't seem to have a clue of what they're doing...all constantly over reacting to the whims of the CEO. Speaking of which, this isn't a guy you want to ever have to work with. Something is seriously off with him. Additionally, everyone treats him like a genius. He spouts typical industry headlines like 'AI is the future! at company meetings and everyone acts like he's a prophet. Finally, as with many agencies...it's all about the pitch and win. If you're not pitching you're dead. The company doesn't know what to do with a client / project once they actually win it. Talent that's 100% allocated to paid client work are constantly pulled off to work on new pitches, regardless of the impact to that project.

    Pros

    awesome amenities, super amazing talented people to work with, dogs everywhere, snacks galore.

    Cons

    No one cares after you get dropped due to company issues. There are no warnings to be made and will work you long late night projects before it happens.
