I worked at Fuse Project full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
The design teams are composed by very talented people, so is the software/hardware team. The projects are good and, if you play your cards right, you'll get some exposure to the clients.Cons
The collaboration between departments is flawed and defined by the power struggle between the heads of the departments. Some departments have two directors, an inheritance of previous power struggles and poor management by the owner of the company.
They're bleeding talent because of the office culture of fighting for influence and power, the low compensation and inexistent perks, and the fact that the HR department is oblivious to how talent acquisition and office culture work.
You'll be under a constant test by the heads of the departments and the owner and this test never ends. You'll spend 30% of your time dealing with office politics. You'll eventually be forced out if you don't adapt to this dynamic. If you don't get used to this in aprox. 3 months, leave. It won't get any better.
The real work, and the award-winning designs that the firm produces, is done by the designers. Most of the directors and the owner haven't designed in years and are not aware of the most basic design principles.Advice to ManagementAdvice
- There needs to be a strong shift in the office culture to promote innovation and increase the quality of the work produced, which has been declining over the last few years. - Stop hiring underpaid interns to do all the work, it creates a strange hierarchy and work dynamic.Doesn't RecommendNeutral Outlook
