We are full. No advertising industry here at all. Just live stock and agriculture. We don't even have internet here

PWC1,D1: All of you saying things like ‘we are full don’t come, etc’, how long have you lived here?

OP: I can’t tell you about the advertising scene, but I can tell you it is a wonderful place to live. While this thread may have unwelcoming posts, people here are very welcoming. I moved here 20 years ago and have no plans to leave. Most people you meet are not born in Colorado, but are transplants. People are drawn here for the beauty and the outdoor activities. I will tell you the accessibility to outdoor activities is not what it was 20 years ago. We are avid skiers and mountain bikers. The traffic to the mountains is very, very bad and therefore we had to buy a condo in the mountains so our children could train as both are competitive skies. Similar situation with mountain biking as we moved to a house with direct access to trails, as traveling from central Denver to the outskirts to ride is very time consuming. You will have to make sacrifices to enjoy the activities ad they are expensive and crowded.

The advertising scene, especially pharma, in Denver is little to non-existent. I’ve worked at one of the small agencies here and in-house at a medical device company. The pay at both were EXTREMELY low despite the rise in housing costs here. I was thrilled when companies started hiring remotely due to COVID and I was able to get back into the pharma agency scene. Quality of life compared to NYC is amazing though. I made the move out here from NYC 5 years ago and would never move back, though New York will always hold a special place in my heart. Denver can definitely feel sleepy in comparison at times, but access to the mountains makes it worth it. Also working for DH, I have been able to make frequent work trips back to NY to get my fill, which is great and gives me the best of both worlds

Pharma isn’t really big here. The energy sector especially clean energy is the largest sector. Can you not work remote with your job?

I can be remote but planning for the future in case we all have to return to live/in person scenarios

Please stay in NY there are few ad agencies here.

If it’s anything like the housing, good roads, and welcoming people arms open, nope not here. Full is an understatement, go to Texas they have it all and it’s bigger!

The local job market here is dramatically different than NY. Be prepared for a very significant fall off in compensation and career opportunities. In advertising, I’m not sure what would be available outside marketing departments at a handful of large companies. Also - recession is on its way; just something to consider before you take the plunge.

If you were a junior creative with some experiences in big network agencies, what would you choose between these two :

A - Big network agency, working only on one account but doing potentially award winning work. Very ambitious and talented team.

B - New unknown agency with a small network backup but several accounts, competing for new clients and the will to win awards too. Two creative teams for now but lots of ambition and possibly more growth and potential to evolve as a junior creative.
