    I worked at Industrial Designers Society of America as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The designers they worked with were awesome! They also had a lot of room to network and reach people everywhere.

    Cons

    They were going through a change in executives at the time so it was a bit disorganized.

  3.  

    Lack of professionalism in interview process. Current employees beware.

    Pros

    Location and nature of business.

    Cons

    The management doesn't seem to know what they want. They advertise for positions, interview several candidates and then repost a different position for less money. This is done without any follow up to those candidates who took the time to interview. Very rude and unprofessional. Beware to current employees as they are clearly not happy with certain functions and are trying to advertise for positions to eliminate status quo.
