    I worked at Deutsch full-time

    Pros

    Deutsch is making moves, and it's an exciting place to be. They just made a few great hires for the executive team, and it's starting to show. They are also great at promoting from within. The culture is very contagious, with constant energy and a feeling of unity and support.

    Cons

    Some of the seating and desk arrangements are not the most conducive to productivity. Also, thre's a lack of structured process, and I think time is wasted due to different employees following different methods without any consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend a little time on laying out defined processes and make sure everyone is on the same page, even across disciplines.

    I worked at Deutsch

    Pros

    Do not work here. It's a soul-sucking place.
    (I have nothing more to say, but am required to write 20 words)

    Cons

    Endless hours. No work/life balance.
    Terrible project management.
    Creative work is uninspired.
    Poor HR policies. No respect for employees.
    Sterile atmosphere.
    Culture of mediocrity.
    A sinking ship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and you'll have a better chance of recruiting a high-quality motivated work force.
    The endless work hours produce crappy work, promote burnout, and doom the company to continued failure.

    I worked at Deutsch as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice production people. They are very rational and treat you with a respect.
    The entire team is very much engaged to do a good work.
    Good client list, good name, big office space.

    Cons

    People in creative team I worked with are very professional, but unfriendly and cocky. Not so welcoming to new workers. The place didn't seem to be ready for current technology - properly updated softwares, devices and pipeline of today's standard, yet this is only seen from from my own experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be great to have some introductory guideline for new workers.
