    Pros

    laidback; great flexibilty for working parents; the project range is amazing and opportunities to grow in the firm are unlimited.

    Cons

    while easy to grow within the firm, harder to grow within the office, though this seems to be changing; too structured within the office space (it needs to be more casual and messy)

    Pros

    Commitment to design. Great highly motivated work force. Industry respect. Motivation to advance the status quote.

    Cons

    Work life balance is bad. It's even worse when considering what employees are Compensated. Most company initiatives are employee volunteer efforts and have little company backing beyond a verbal or spoken support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a great company. Take the passion for design and Create a culture of success in business, community and family life. Employees are so slammed they don't make connections in the community. They marginalized their family relationships and they aren't even bring home decent pay check?! Something needs to change!
