Mind numbing tedium

Graphic Artist (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

ProsOnly plus is working at home

ConsTerribly disorganized
forced to create graphics at a breakneck pace
Any semblance of quality or value in the art work is brutally discouraged as it raises the bar for the brand and costs them money so you are held to a very low denominator of creating poor quality clip art for the K-12 material.
It is a hectic rush with numerous and varied lead artist giving you conflicting direction and harried producers pushing you to work longer hours.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsider becoming a provider of QUALITY educational resources not the low grade cheap material that is the driving style now.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
