Disapproves of CEO

Pros

• Company provides lunch/Dinner if you’re asked to work through lunch. • Got some good talented people.

Cons

• Salary is way below the market and very hard to get a raise. • Some freelancers don’t get paid or get less than their rate if Ayzenberg don’t win the pitch. • Hours: 9am – 7pm and expect to stay longer and work long weekends regularly. (AE's a lot longer) • Eric Ayzenberg expects people to stay late and take work home regularly. • Eric reads employees emails and monitor their computer screens from a remote computer to check if people are working. • Eric loves to creep behind people and micromanage every second. “Bigger, Bigger, Smaller, Smaller” • Under staffed (people don’t last long), and mismanaged. • If you’re a creative, it’s very difficult or impossible to get promoted internally. • Lack of respect for the designers. Expect to hear why Eric should fire someone regularly. • Clients love/hate relationship with Ayzenberg seriously impacts the workflow. • 1 production artist to cover the agency workload.

    I worked at Ayzenberg as a contractor

    Pros

    Excellent design and marketing team, beautiful offices, great employees

    Cons

    Lack of communication between design and development teams.

    Advice to Management

    The gap between the teams needs to be brought together, as communication is very lacking at times. We would be handed projects with an urgency of "get it done yesterday", and were expected to clean them up and held the blame if we didn't get them done in a timely fashion. The CEO would often change his mind about directions or projects.
