    I worked at Signs Now

    Pros

    Good experience with everything related to production (of all kinds), and design. The customers were also extremely kind and complementary of my work.

    Cons

    Manager expected everything in the shop to be done by the designer when she originally said that she would do 1/2 and the designer would do the other 1/2. She never made her expectations 100% clear and set her personal biases against all employees. She overlooked hard work and tallent just to find something that she could criticize to make herself feel better about being "the manager". She expected the designer to design all of the products her way, we used illustrator, but she would go in and change things to suit her needs; however she didn't know the software and would yell at us when she couldn't work the system. She treated the customers like crap and didn't properly train any of the employees. In my 3 months there I didn't once receive the handbooks that she promised. I don't know if all Signs Now are like this, but this one certainly is horrid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to use the software that you expect your employees to use in case you do decide to take over every design. Also treat your employees with respect, listen to them and speak to them kindly. Just because someone knows more than you about a business doesn't give you the right to bully them. Learn from your employees, they have just as much to teach you as you should teach them.
