I worked at Ziba Design full-time (more than 3 years)Pros
At Ziba for over 3 years, I worked with some of the most intelligent, driven, ambitious, passionate people I have ever met or had the pleasure to work with. The creative team is without a doubt one of the best out there. The quality of work and camaraderie has yet to be topped in any discipline I have encountered since. Throughout my time at Ziba I continued to learn every day, challenge and be challenged, and gain exposure to minds, markets, and experiences that have shaped my career since.
Since the change in management, there is a new vitality to Ziba. It is definitely a community - and one that cares about its employees in my experience. I was supported and challenged, mentored and given the opportunity to mentor. Already having a portfolio with some of the most prestigious clients in the world, Ziba is an excellent place to work if you are ambitious, curious, and driven.
I have not found a place I like working more than Ziba.Cons
Like any agency, Ziba works to create the best end result possible. That does mean a time commitment which sometimes strays outside of normal business hours. Hours can be long, and stress can mount, but if you are signing up to work for an agency, that is par for the course.
Promotions most commonly come when you prove the case why you should receive one. It is not a place for the timid, or those looking for passive recognition. You definitely have to prove yourself, and put the time in to do so.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Continue to strive for growth, ownership, and a sense of entrepreneurship throughout the company. We learned from earlier managerial systems that micromanaging and competition do not breed the best results. With the current management team in place, however, there is already a change in how the company is structured and run.
Continue to push for innovation not just in the work, but in how Ziba organizes itself.RecommendsPositive Outlook
