Droga5 is nice. But you have to Really bust your ass there. One of the few agencies that ate making really creative ideas for real clients and not just pro-bono ngo stuff. But if I could choose now I will get out of agency world and go to a place that creates content.

Facebook's culture is not for everyone. If you're not into their vibe, you won't last long. If it fits for you - Facebook is an amazing place. If you want to be the king of your domain and have a big ego - stick with D5

I know people on the analytics team at FB - all smart as F. very selective. they have a crap-ton of data (obviously) so lots of interesting problems they can answer.

For analytics, FB no question. Do you want to be the star of the show or a support player? FB is data-led from a mktg standpoint and ad agencies simply are not.

Facebook Jesus Christ how can you even ask that question?

like

@OP - if you want to do cool shit, getting in at FB, there's so much going on, it's crazy. You'll need about 6-12mo to figure it out but there are amazing people there and they want you to work.

@ LB2 - the overall culture is very much like you read in press -- bringing your whole self to work, transparency, breaking things, and a lot of conversation. If you're not into the platform, also a bad fit. If you're senior, you're expected to work. It's not a place where you can get by as a hack. You will get found out pretty quick

What Analytics would you do at Droga?
