Great agency
Director of Project Management (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 19, 2017
I worked at Giant during a growth spurt. There was a lot of energy throughout the various client teams. Giant is not part of a holding company, so there was a lot more flexibility in terms of bringing in resources. The Partners were great to work with as well as the senior leadership team

Agency with no direction
Senior Account Executive (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 11, 2017
This agency is very top-heavy in leadership, with few staff to do the work. People are extremely overworked. I'm on the Account team and have spoken to management about having too much of a workload but only to have this fall on deaf ears.

This agency was really fun a few years ago. Now it's become a place with revolving doors where people are constantly churned out.

The people are fun for the most part. But even that's changing. With so many people coming and going, there is no longer any culture at this agency.
Pros
Thursday drinks
Cons
Lack of leadership, stability, culture

Fun people to work with, but finance team is understaffed.
Senior Accountant (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CANovember 28, 2016
Giant has a fun culture with some really talented people. Catered happy hours every Thursday. The finance team is definitely understaffed, but they do order in food and offer company-paid taxis home when working late.

Compensation and benefits are above average.
Pros
Good compensation and benefits. Weekly happy hours.
Cons
High turnover.

What was once is no longer
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJuly 6, 2015
What was once a vibrant and fun company to work for is no longer. The company spiraled out of control with growth and business in 2013-2014. The once energetic workplace where we all looked forward to come to everyday no longer exists.
