Thoughts on working at RPA LA vs Possible LA?

I've worked at POSSIBLE for 4 years. To date, it's lived up to its people first mantra. Its leadership has been around average 7 years and make themselves available. I believe turn over is 1/3 of the industry standard, probably due to the healthy work/life balance and quality of people/talent (the reason I go to work every day). They send out a survey 1/quarter to ensure that they get feedback anonymously to evolve the culture. From a client standpoint, POSSIBLE LA has grown and is on an upward trajectory of growing. There are 4 core (and stable) accounts - Acura, AT&T, SCE and Microsoft - as well as a few smaller ones. Clients are 75% local, and have on average been around 5 years. They also get a client satisfaction survey 1/quarter and I believe the office is over an 8.5 on average. To the note on CDs at POSSIBLE, I have a good relationship and am probably biased, but think they're accessible and talented. A new ECD was hired last year to further revitalize the creative team and she's has the respect of that department. Creative does not just repurpose work here, there is production involved if that helps. I don't know much about RPA, I'm sure they have their strengths too. But POSSIBLE has integrity, grit and a solid, smart, supportive group of people no matter the level. The hiring process is rigorous to ensure that this is maintained. Hope that helps give you some clarity in your search. All the best to you.

Coming late to the party, work at RPA and know people from Possible. RPA provides stability without being that fun but Possible is not the fuuuuun you would think, they have Microsoft as a big client (boring) and at RPA Honda is the big client (boooring). Big difference, RPA has way more flexibility than Possible. They're kinda old school saying that 'work from home' is not even a real term. Yeah right!

Wait, sorry if I’ve missed news, did Mullen lose Acura? Also, I’ve heard great things about RPA.

The sizes of the office are different too, if that matters to you. Possible is smaller. Try to meet with the people. I did informal interviews with both when I was starting in my career and didn't get great vibes from the CDs at possible. Overall, my gut says RPA over Possible

"Possible has digital" = Sadly, zero chances of producing something that's not coming from the traditional agency.

Have heard great things about the 9-5 lifestyle at RPA. Meh things about the work. (It’s a clock in, clock out place, if that’s your drift.)

I’ve heard Possible is a bit of a mess, doesn’t have the best reputation. RPA is solid if you want a boring but stable 9-5 as previously noted.

Creative side versus media side have very different opinions how they feel about RPA. Let's just say that one side doesn't have the same positive opinions as the other. I'd be very mindful about who you ask.
