    Once private company was acquired by LF USA, environment changed for the worst.

    Design Director (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsJimlar management that has been there a long time (generally speaking) are nice, good people. Healthcare used to be free, but that was recently changed.

    ConsThe senior management is very poor, weak. Management does not have a solid strategy. Product teams try to follow what little strategy they do have in place and then they blame those underneath them for poor performance. Management style is to yell at staff and blame design for everything. This is seen across several several managers at the top. Long hours.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet much better leaders. Inspire people. Make them want to work and feel good. People will work very hard for people they like and believe in.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Learned alot but no room for growth

    Associate Designer (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsThe environment was very warm and the people are great to work with.

    ConsWorked very long hours and received nothing in return. There was no room for growth at all within this company. Sales team also did not provide accurate or enough information to designers in order to better product and sales.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNot sure if it would be useful to even advise management on how to better the company. I believe this company is too unstable for any future advice.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    High demand, low support

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsMy colleagues make coming to work more enjoyable. Our team is made up of very talented individuals. Benefits/vacation package is pretty good.

    ConsThere is very little work/life balance. It is very common for employees in my department to stay very late, frequently, or work on the weekends. Employees are cramped in their work space.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in hiring more employees that offer support, those who physically get the work done.
