LA - traditional creative is ok, but some stuff is coming that will be pretty cool. digital stuff is all data and content stuff, but they seem to like working on it.

i personally love the place.

I've heard the LA office is terrible.

LA and Dallas work together on Toyota. Been some struggles working between the two offices. Loads of hierarchy with all of the pros and cons that come with that. (More of a challenge to sell an idea internally than externally) But great people abide in both offices with a few random pessimists scattered about. My advice to anyone considering it, would be to pick your boss wisely. A good one’ll give you autonomy and value your opinions. But be weary of the micromanagers and process dictators. Get one of those and you’re gonna have a bad time.

They are doing some very interesting data work in LA. P&G work out of NY speaks for itself.

The LA office is in Torrance, in the South Bay.
It shares a parking lot with a shopping mall.
Plenty of pleasant people working there.
Food options are ehhh.

Great question. Was always wondering if someone might ask this sort of question on fishbowl.

Younger people are in and out in about 2 years, people later in their careers stick around for much longer.

Mmm, older people have been fleeing lately.

ACD1 can you elaborate?

I've heard that it's madmen from the 80'S there. Very old fashion and the office is far and ugly. Uninspiring environnement overall. That's all I know

Is Torrance more of a suburban family vibe compared to Venice/Santa Monica/MDR? Never been (clearly).

@huge1 - not really. people tend to stick around.

Hi fishes,

My interview with Microsoft for SE2 was scheduled and cancelled a day before. Neither I received any email regarding cancellation nor the recruiter informed me. Two days later I got an email saying Microsoft is freezing hiring for certain departments and the recruiter is ghosting me. Will I even get a chance to interview atleast?

Curious how other people’s brains work.
When you get an activation brief, what’s your process for coming up with a solid idea?

Look for cultural moments that you can adapt? Look through award show books? Scroll YouTube videos until 3am?

I know that every brief and every idea is different, but I’m more interested in the process and what you’re creative routine is to get the wheels turning.

Thanks.
