    Amazing creative shop dedicated to innovative and exciting creative

    Strategic Planner (Former Employee)
    Berkeley, CA

    ProsSmall shop, with smart creative people and involved management.
    Young team of designers and UX people who know their stuff. Strong bond between employees and management. Opportunity to innovate and grow your role.

    ConsNot the easiest location to get to in Berkeley if commuting from SF on public transport.
    Be aware that commitment is expected in the form of hours invested. This will be rewarded however.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow for delegation and trust employees to own work more often.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    lots of fun but lots of chaos

    Contract (Former Employee)
    Berkeley, CA

    ProsIt's a great workplace where they really know how to keep you happy. They like to make sure everything is provided for you. Not that pretty from the outside but the inside is gorgeous.

    ConsManagement is a little crazy. Sometimes there's just too many managers and you just don't know what to do because everyone is telling you to do something different. And it ends up being a lot of over time and late nights due to bad time management for products.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Chaotic

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBeautiful environment, fun and talented co-workers, great coffee and kitchen treats, dog-friendly.

    ConsUpper management oblivious about running a business, spread too thin. No proper staff management, account management, or project management. No onboarding process, it's sink or swim. No proper briefing of new projects, creatives are expected to follow orders blindly and work extremely long hours for low pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRespect your staff's abilities to do their jobs, don't micromanage.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
