    Pros

    there are good people but they are few and far

    Cons

    no communication, cold environment, training is minimal if that, expected to know the jargon and environment with no training

    Advice to Management

    treat as you wish to be treated goes a long way, have training programs in place for new hires instead of throwing them to the wolves

    Pros

    Good open office environment, friendly co workers and good benefit package. Not so competitive salary. Some teams were not very well organized.

    Cons

    Weekly meeting was kind of wasting of time. Some team members were wasting their time and also others' too. Lack of knowledgeable team leaders. Not so creative working environment.

    Pros

    Strong creative, lovely office facilities, great people. Enjoyed the majority of the team, had some great clients, participated in fun, inspirational work.

    Cons

    Several senior managers that were bad actors, had their own agendas, didn't walk the talk, didn't listen to the client, and had unrealistic expectations around life/work balance -- essentially, none.

    Advice to Management

    Walk your talk, balance the load, provide growth opportunities to more than the creative staff

  7. Great potential, lack of vision and poor leadership

    Pros

    There is an amazing team in place with strong culture, but the leadership is lacking. The directors are not empowered to do their jobs, and the overarching company that owns FITCH seriously hinders and restricts their growth.

    Cons

    Lack of vision, lack of career development, stressful work environment, lack of loyalty and recognition for hard work. Oh, and absolutely no bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Start from scratch. Get new leadership, trust and empower directors, show more loyalty and respect to your staff, and simply put... Pay better.

    Pros

    Great people, great brand, good portfolio (but the work is old), nice office, family friendly. A lot of potential with a strong leader.

    Cons

    No new business, in the red, no leadership. It struggled for too long and now has to overcome poor market perceptions.

    Advice to Management

    Take an interest in the Seattle studio. Develop a focused sales plan and then act on the steps. Keep the design staff you have left.

    Pros

    Great office environment, friendly co-workers. Really enjoyed the people I worked with and most of my bosses. They provided me with all the tools I needed to succeed and gave me the flexibility I needed to manage my personal life as well.

    Cons

    Occasionally office politics gets in the way of a productive work environment and some managers aren't up to par. But overall nothing too bad to say.

    Advice to Management

    Be in the office more. It's hard to develop a connection when you are out of the office 50% of the time.

  10. Not a great experience.

    Pros

    Global firm, if you like working with big global clients, most of their work is for well known companies.

    Cons

    Shady, unprofessional people. I didn't get paid for a few of the last days of my contract. I was not made aware that an amount was deducted from my final paycheck, until I saw money was missing for myself a over a month after competing the job. No one ever contacted me about a problem. After a lot of back and forth through several people about the missing money, the truth finally came out that pay had been deducted.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees more.
