Pros

Strong future. Company continues to grow while others remain static. Job security and benefits.

Cons

Does not value their employees, treat them as commodities. Does not appropriately communicate company culture. Management is cold and will disparage you if you step off their beaten path! Pay is lower than other companies. Environment is stressful, uptight, and one of blame.

Advice to Management

Build a culture of collaboration based on respect and admiration NOT FEAR!

    Pros

    Plenty of resources and experience that cuts out the mundane parts of the job. The materials libraries, blocks, presentation templates, and client relations take out a lot of detailing and cold calling that take valuable time. The pay is good, the boomerang program ensures employment. They also pay overtime

    Cons

    Because they pay overtime, they treat you like you have no right to leave. Project managers NEVER tell the client no and that costs the younger designers almost all free time. There is a large descrepancy between the big dogs and the worker bees

    Advice to Management

    Tell the client no enough to sustatin a healthy work/life balance for employees. The reason ALL projects assume ridiculous schedules is because the industry has allowed them to. Rather than offering quickest delivery, offer a happy healthy and positive process that will end with a better result
