    Pros

    amazing people, great client list filled with fortune 500 companies and big brands, great portfolio building experience, the best place i can think of to start off the career of a out-of-college designer

    Cons

    the ship is sinking (to borrow the klamath metaphor), aren't willing to pay market average for digitally focused designers (web, animation), takes over a year for any change to get made

    Advice to Management

    hire more designers because way too many have left already

  2. Great reputation, terrific history, smart people. Too focused on numbers
