Former Employee - Front End Developer in New York, NY

I worked at Magnani Caruso Dutton full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Knowledge shares
A general desire to help staff learn
9-6 isn't that bad for nyc agencies

Cons

Boring clients! Their main client is Discover, and it's unbelievably boring work.
I worked on maybe 1 or 2 actual new projects, with the majority of the work being someone they fired. Working on other people's code is hard and frustrating. Especially once it's been through several generations.
They seem to burn bridges pretty willingly, treating employees as if they're easily replaceable.
They tried to hard to make up for their lack of fun projects by doing in house stuff half heartedly, and none of it ever got released.
The design people seem really burnt out. Not a smile to be shared in that dept.
They pay mid - low industry standard.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get some fun clients, movies etc. Lose money on them, but bring your team back to life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    partners aren't a unified front. company direction is often unclear. it's difficult to watch employees work so hard and go unrewarded consistently. throw them a bone outside of a coffee from down the block.
