    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 ManagementAdvice

    hire more designers because way too many have left already

    No opinion of CEO
