    Pros

    Impressive selection of major licenses and toy properties to work with. Great potential for learning. Creativity is encouraged. Friendly design staff.

    Cons

    Depending on what team you work with, certain leaders in upper management are unorganized, unprofessional, and dictate unethical work practices for their employees to meet unrealistic deadline expectations. There is no work balance, a negative office atmosphere, and long hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, Upper Management should treat their designers with more respect. Learn to work productively and respectfully WITH your teams, instead of working against them.
