Heavily political environment
Smart creative people aren't promoted, ambitious narcissists climb the corporate ladder here, and make terrible decisions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on better management - not only better managers of people, but also smart, visionary - with the amount of money the directors and above get, the company deserves better than we're getting.

    Pros

    Amazing people
    Great Work/Life balance
    Great products
    Solid positioning in the design field

    Cons

    Totally inefficient organization - Senior management seriously lacks experience and ambition, work for own interest only
    Political game present everywhere - a lot of promises and projects are started, but nothing ever gets done !
    No opportunity for advancement through hard work - you have to be "a friend of"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A big cleanup is absolutely required - but this time don't just reorg by shuffling senior managers around - Get rid of those who haven't proven their worth through results and hard work, promote hard workers and people with ambition.
