Pros

Creative people at all levels, great to have on your resume, inspiring environment, great parties and events with delicious food and wine.

Cons

Long hours, unrealistic expectations, limited administrative/ design support to get the job done to meet those expectations.

Advice to Management

Let people do their jobs themselves- you may actually like what you see if you stay out of the way. (and I'm not talking about Martha here- loved her input, always!)
