Curious to hear other's experiences are working at agencies vs working "in-house".
Some Questions to get you thinking: 1. What do you like about your organization? What do you not like? 2. How is the success of your work evaluated? 3. Do you feel like you have the time needed to deliver quality work? 4. Does your organization have a clearly defined process? 5. How big is your team? 6. Does your organization have a culture of "over-working" you?
In my own experience @ a small botique branding agency we get to work on really fun and exciting projects, but it can be frustrating working on an interactive team of 1 person. I also don't like how the success of my work is evaluated on the basis of: *does it look good? *does the like like it? *did you do it reasonably quickly?
I get the impression that "in-house" your metrics are much more user-centric or outcome-oriented. ie, did this project succeed at a pre-defined goal regarding user actions?
