I worked at Michael Graves & Associates full-time for more than a year
Pros – Wide range of projects for graphic designers
Textile design, industrial design along with presentation design
Very talented young staff of graphic designers
Cons – Extremely lo tech ( graphic designers worked on PC's and in 2008 the OS was windows 98)
Could not print b/c the printers were too old- had to print most presentation books at print shop)
1 man IT department ( in 2008 there were almost 100 employees, it was awful)
Serious sweat shop
Lots of HUGE egos to work around
Advice to Senior Management – Hire a creative director to head up the graphics department to grow that side of the business. A furniture designer from the 80's should not be heading this up. Invest in some new technology for your staff- it was debilitating to work on such old malfunctioning equipment. Ease up on the sweat shop mentality- life is too short.
