An Insider's view of Fusion92

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Fusion does a great job of making sure that people feel balanced in their work and personal lives. We know when to buckle down, but we also know that focusing on your life outside of work is just as important. There is a work hard, play hard mentality among team members that everyone respects!


Media Director

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As the ringleader of the client/agency relationship, it can be challenging to continuously evolve the work and the client partnership, but it's also the most fulfilling part of the role. We have great clients and value the partnerships we've built with them!

Group Creative Director

What are some things you learned at the company?
