I worked at Hornall Anderson Design Works full-timePros
- People at Hornall Anderson are super dynamos. No B+ people here. You will develop great relationships. Guaranteed.
- Diverse roster of clients.
- 32 years of legacy and great work.
- Professional development. They will invest in your continued education. Not necessarily an MBA, classes - yes.Cons
- Jack Anderson is no longer the CEO and President. This has changed the company.
- There is a lack of leadership beyond management. Hire more experienced coaches, less players.
- Clear line in the sand between management and the rest of the office that hadn't existed before.
- People aren't being utilized in the best way across the board: client service, design, marketing, admin.
- Frustration, mistrust, uncertainty of the future are no longer undertones. They're blatant and shared among many.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Be real, authentic and have some heart. There's a perception management does not embody these traits.
Find inspiration. Absorb it, own it, believe it and share it. The organization is need of it deeply.
Ignite and motivate your creative people. Give them more and leave them to it. Go back to trusting their gut. You hired them because they are smart, strategic and share a passion for great design. Trust that they'll bring it and do it.
Listen (and respond with respect and consideration) to your peers and those who work tirelessly for you.
Minimize talking to each other in the corners of the building. Engage and make decisions with others - make them feel part of Hornall Anderson's success story. Shared value. Shared success. Authenticate it. People are watching you.Doesn't RecommendNeutral OutlookApproves of CEO
