I have been working at The Designory

Pros

Benefits
Good, competent people below director level

Cons

Short sighted when it comes to type work and accounts they want to take on
Constantly behind interactive trends and best practices
Lack of interest from director level and above in ensuring the success of accounts
No Work/Life balance unless you demand it
No career path or growth opportunities. Senior staff is always hired from outside.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior management needs to stop thinking of people as replaceable parts and focus on developing employees and look to promote from within. The company needs to find its identity and not chase after work simply because it has a dollar amount associated with it.

    I worked at The Designory

    Pros

    The people were the main reason that made The Designory such a great place to work. Coworkers, for the most part, were passionate about doing a good job, but more uniquely, it was a very close-knit group of people who enjoyed working with each other.

    Cons

    No company's perfect, but executives seemed a little short-sighted as far as direction of the company and future growth and development of its employees and portfolio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the people who are still there; it is a great group of talented people who have low morale due to developments with some of the accounts.
