What is Spark Foundry and why don't they have any work on their website? They approached me about a job but no one I know seems to have heard of them. Thanks for your POV.

Spark in Chicago is fine . It's NYC which is the problem. The name was changed from MediaVest because the leadership lost Microsoft, Mondelez, P&G, Coca-Cola and Honda in the past 5 years . Honda announced it was due to shady practices . They have won Dave's Bridal and Mattress Firm as replacement clients .....

And doing a ton of progressive work, developing concepts, creating shit... media was removed from the name for a reason. Wouldn't call us small anymore.

Pretty great client roster. They were REI’s agency when they did the whole opt outside thing.

SF3 you give me hope. I’m up for a really tempting job there but am nervous about it being too media heavy

They’re a smaller group within the Publicis umbrella. Changed their name from Spark SMG to Spark Foundry within the past year and a half. Completely legit media agency.

Ha! We’re not small. We’re the largest company in publicis media. OP, lots of fun work coming out. Take the meeting for sure. Spark has been the fastest growing agency for many years and our content department is kicking ass.

We were formerly Mediavest, merged with Spark (who was a smaller Publicis Agency). What position was mentioned? And legit question on the website, I don't think it's due to a lack of good work.

OP, make sure you don't work for this guy ^^ and you'll be fine.

OP what team/office - lots of progressive thinking across the board. Content team is blurring lines and creating brand assets in new ways... media dollars unlock a lot of cool things if the right people are thinking differently.
