Current Employee - Interior Designer
Current Employee - Interior Designer

I have been working at The Gettys Group

Pros

-exposure to larger scale of projects
-at smaler offices you get to see different aspects of the projects

Cons

-demotion is often practiced here, if you had a higher position at another firm, they will tell you you're not good enough and need to accept a lower position and prove yourself to them
-after the demotion, obvious they won't pay you very much for what you're worth
-in order for them to grow, you will need to stop growing, so they have more money to hire more people
-very corporate
-management is a failure
-filled with lies
-more business oriented
-fast turn around
-at one of the locations, 9 people quit within a month; while at another, no one has worked there for more than a year; something to be said about that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treating people fair is a good start; abusing employees' talent and effort is not the way to run a business, nor a way to be successful.

    The managing director in Hong Kong is a fair person who will help you and your design abilities to grow professionally.
    Amazing colleagues.

    Cons

    The company has changed and except for the offices in Hong Kong and Miami, women are not promoted as much as men. Management no longer treat women fairly in this company.

    Promote and hire more women in leadership roles.
