    Pros

    Though I wasn't at the Hyperfactory very long it was clear that some of the brightest and enthusiastic people in regards to mobile work there. If you're looking for great career experience and really looking into the future of emerging technology, the Hyperfactory provides this and more.

    I would also say that their dedicated development team in India is one of the brightest, yet overlooked assets of the company, more so than some of the AM's/PM's or Directors. Top notch.

    Cons

    They are going through a transition from NZ to NYC and its clearly been a challenge so if you're not interested in really digging in and wearing many hats, this might not be the place for you.

    The long hours can be draining but they make up for it with frequent outings at near by Soho hot spots.

    Some areas need a bit more leadership/experience which some of the people their lack, but it sounds like they are approving on that as well.

    Advice to Management

    Use more of you Monday Morning Meeting as an opportunity to help share the knowledge. There are talented and very knowledgeable people within the upper crust that need to share this with the newbies. Hold workshops.

    Communicate more. Be transparent. You're resting on your laurels.

    Pros

    You will learn a lot. A lot of deck presentations and research. Will get to know the media platform well in the sense of constant researching updates in mobilesphere.

    Cons

    People pretend they are knowledgable when they actually have no idea what they are doing. Not friendly at all. Everyone puts up a front and doesn't act like a team. Not personable or approachable unless you are good at talking everyone up and making smalltalk. Some people don't even look at you or say hello either.

    Good and nice company. Life is very balanced with work and family

    Pros

    Overall this is a good place to work. People are passionate about their job, they work hard and collaborate well together.

    Cons

    Movement upwards in this company is challenging. Promotions and career growth seem to happen very slowly.

    Advice to Management

    If employees feel valued, and 'feel' as if they are a part of something (something bigger) they'll be even more dedicated to the success of this company.

    I have been working at The Hyperfactory full-time

    Pros

    Great client roster, lots of experienced sitting within the senior management team, great SoHo location, good place to learn a lot about mobile. Really good for someone young in their career who want to work hard and learn a lot.

    Cons

    Really low staff morale at the moment, especially while going through a major transition process. This will hopefully sort itself out in the coming months. Heavily focused on pulling in external people to magically fix the place up which can make the staff who've worked hard feel undervalued. Pay is terrible, but you'll likely go up significantly once you leave because of the experience you gain.

    Advice to Management

    Start looking after your staff better or your going to lose them

    Pros

    It's a really fun group of people. Most are in their twenties, so there are times when it all feels like some giant frat party. Great client roster.

    Cons

    Not enough training for new employees. The agency really needs to make some important key hires.

    Advice to Management

    Solve your problems. It's not brain surgery!
