    Dissapointing to watch egos triumph over opportunity.

    I worked at Matrix Design Group

    Pros

    Exposure to some talented individuals in the industry
    Networking within local govenments and professionals

    Cons

    You will be underpaid
    Advancement is unlikely as this is a "hire/fire firm" according to market trends for services offered
    Politics limit overall company growth

    The Red Pill- the Employees Reality in work hell. The Blue Pill - Upper Management is Delusional

    I worked at Matrix Design Group full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Interesting projects. If you can stick it out for a year, you can build a decent project list for your resume. (This is the only benefit.)

    Cons

    Beyond LONG Hours. Directors do not direct. Directors do not plan/manage/lead projects. Directors are only for marketing. (So who manages the project then?) Poor communication throughout company. Processes are not in place. HIGH turn-over. If you go on vacation, be prepared to work on vacation and be available on your cell phone. Average to below average pay despite CEO claiming wanting to attract the "best and the brightest". No work/life balance ("The Matrix" IS your family.) Insurance is subpar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to shed some poor performing Directors -- the root of your problem but you all took the blue pill. Time to take the red pill and look at reality. Look at your operations and how you plan projects and resources. Really need to get directors who took business/project management courses and who can listen, comprehend, strategize, present a solution and communicate.

    I worked at Matrix Design Group full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good experience to help me move on with my career.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, high turn over, terrible compensation. Not all offices had same workplace policies and standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason you burn through employees. Treat employees with dignity and respect and compensate them for the hours they put in. There is zero work life balance. The CEO is out of touch with the culture of all the offices in the company.

    I worked at Matrix Design Group

    Pros

    Decent benefits
    Great location
    Really trying to do some great things for the employees

    Cons

    Many individuals considered "upper management", all with opposing views on how things should be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to have personnel report to only one person. It sends a less convoluted message and allows people to do their job more efficiently.
