I worked at Interdesign full-time (more than an year)Pros
Good medical coverage, cool softlines products, company picnic/partyCons
Bad attitude environment, no promotions, low pay, no vision coverageAdvice to ManagementAdvice
I will start off by saying this company could be a great company. It is very design driven and has some fun, interesting products. Some of the people here are great and a lot of fun, but I've found the majority of people are back-stabbing and miserable.
Work-wise, there aren't too many slow days, work is usually consistently (this is office experience only, not warehouse). Working isn't too creative, it's very production based. The company had good health benefits. No eye insurance though. There are annual evaluations with bonuses (very small) and potential for raises. They do not promote internally. They are great for hiring in people way higher and giving BS promotions just to keep you quiet after years. Of course, the mean brown nosers are the promoted ones here.
Not everyone, but a lot of people are very hard to approach here. Many have a better than you attitude. Some are straight up mean and spiteful. Many are afraid to even approach the Graphics department because of the attitudes that come from some of the people in the department.
The turn-over rate of the place has to be terrible, I wish I had the numbers. They go through firing sprees, then a lot of people quit. Mainly because the work environment is so bad. If you're not working, there's a habit of people tattling about that. People keep track of your lunch times and what time you walk in the door just to report you.
The company does do some fun things, such as picnics, an annual Christmas party, free Turkey at Thanksgiving, and you get a lot of free product working here too. As for the product, some of it is great, some of it is cheap. I will say that 50% of what I have brought home has broken, but the softlines products are great.
Basically if you're desperate for a job, needs some money and experience, go for it. If you're looking to build a resume, a career, make more money, get promoted, build a portfolio, etc. I'd suggest keep looking. The toxic environment is not worth it, trust me.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO
