    Pros

    A lot of pros, great environment, the office is amazing and some great colleagues. Very interesting experience I loved it

    Cons

    No cons really but some people will look down on you as an intern. But otherwise pretty positive experience overall. The hours were flexible

    Advice to Management

    Teach more to intern don't let them do only the bad work. But otherwise depending on the team it's a good experience

    Pros

    The staff is great, everyone is friendly even when under lots of stress. Everyone tries to help one another if possible.

    Cons

    The work hours are long and the work load never ends. Ir takes a lot of commitment and personal sacrifice to successfully stay with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play games with your employees, be honest about things, everyone is an adult.

    Pros

    Oscar made an effort to say hi to all of the design interns everyday he came through the office which made us feel like we were really apart of the team. My boss was extremely delightful and flexible with my work hours.

    Cons

    Opportunities for advancement seemed to be somewhat political. Most employee's work late into the night because they are extremely devoted to their work, which can be seen as an extended commitment for those who want to be able to go 'offline' when they leave the work place.

    Cons

    Even though I often completed tedious tasks, my supervisors always showed their appreciation for my help.

    Pros

    I loved the work and all of my coworkers. It was a great atmosphere with a lot of learning opportunity.

    Cons

    I had to wait up to 5 months to get my freelancing checks. If you are looking to pay rent or eat with what you earn there, might not be the place for you. The money will come but it will take a lot of badgering.

    Amazing brand overall with respected reputation.
