Pros

Great mix of young energetic designers and seasoned professionals. High energy environment. Progressive design culture. Large resource of experienced people to guide employees at any level.

Cons

Recruits right up until the point of starting lay-offs. It can seem very corporate and impersonal, but the company is mostly merit based.

Advice to Management

There should be more performance reviews and feedback, and a free flow of information back & forth from employees to management.

    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!
