    Pros

    Co-workers are great - for the most part, very talented, bright, fun, interesting people who want to do good work and make a difference in the world

    Cons

    Communication from senior management is laughable - they think they're great at it, but its meaningless white noise. The silence around the continuing layoffs is unsettling, to put it mildly.
    The feeling we get from senior management is that everyone is replaceable; we should all feel lucky to have a job; its the haves versus the have nots.
    Too many principals, and many don't like or respect each other, or want to work together; feels like high school, but at least in HS you have the excuse of being young and immature. So much for the 'collaborative, interdisciplinary' culture!
    Bottom line and utilization rates are all that matter.
    Level of stress in no way equals the 'rewards'
    HR is a joke; not advocates for the staff.
    People tend to show their true colors when the going gets tough, and those colors are not pretty.
    Many of the good people have left or will leave; unfortunately, some useless people remain.
    Too bad - used to be a respectable design firm and a decent place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get serious management advisor in ASAP, before its too late
    Throw out (almost) everyone at the top and start over

    Pros

    Wide variety of clients, interesting work, definite appreciation for all iterations of design, very multi-disciplinary, clearly value their interns, didn't feel belittled

    Cons

    Not a huge amount of cohesion within the Graphic Design Department, some work was particularly tedious, graphic designers often were asked to do menial work because they were the only ones with knowledge of the Creative Suite

    Advice to Management

    Expand the Graphic Design department to include production artists and project managers that cater specifically to the work being done within the department.
