    Pros

    Fun high level design. Beautiful upscale work environment really makes you feel special working there.

    Cons

    Egos are rampant among many of the veteran designers and engineers there. Also they are very very cold to Contract designers making sure they know they are not invited to full-time employee lunches, meetings, etc. This strategy on one hand makes you want to work for them full-time so you are not the outcast, but on the other hand it comes off as a grade school click of a team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to get to know your contract employees because they may have more talent then just your judgement of their outward appearance.

    Pros

    If you like the old-school, "throw it over the wall" design process, this is the place for you. The division of responsibilities is clear.

    Cons

    Poor project management, unenlightened team dynamics. If you want to work in an integrated design environment, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't change a thing. The world needs utilitarian design consulting companies to handle the mass of uninspired projects.

    Pros

    The people are what truly make Lunar great. Not only are they some of the best and brightest at what they do, but they are a genuine pleasure to be around. Exciting projects, open collaboration, happy employees leads to fantastic results.

    Cons

    You only get to work on client projects, there should be in house projects! More opportunities to work across disciplines and pick up new skills would also be good.
