    Pros

    Great Mid and Entry Level People
    Lots of freedom in design, many roles on projects

    Cons

    Principal group uses the same old tricks in design, not innovative
    Management very moody, personally offensive
    Sweatshop hours
    Bad communication and lots of wasted time

    Advice to Management

    Take stock of how things are run and can be more efficient. Engage the broader field to generate some new energy in your design. Think out the presentation structure to save money and not burn out staff on useless tasks.
