In-House Vs Agency

Hey guys,

I've been an in-house designer for Fossil, and I've been considering an agency life...for those of your that have done both, or just one or the other...What considerations do you think I should make, before I make any sort of move. (besides the obvious pay, benefits, etc)

I personally prefer agency work because you don't get tied into a single style and you're around a larger group of designers to bounce ideas off of. Admittedly, the only time Ive worked as an in-house graphic designer was doing very boring and repetitive work, so you may have entirely different experiences to me. Whats making you consider the change?

Bureaucracy. Fossil's in house is huge, 100 people in the art dept alone, and it seems that the higher ups are so stuck in their ways that the culture is stunted.

No account?
