    I worked at STV full-time

    Pros

    Structured environment, intelligent co-workers, strong leadership, good benefits, good compensation packages for most positions

    Cons

    Strong outgoing personalities with outstanding communication skills often take lead over truly knowledgeable and highly experienced professionals.

    Having closer relationship with all levels of professionals across the company would help.

    Pros

    Boss and co works are nice and very helpful. They don't treat you like " why you don't even know this"

    Cons

    Guess everyone is so busy and after work just want to back home ASAP have their life. There is not enough communication except work.

    I worked at STV full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The ESOP is a huge benefit that doesn't get as much attention as it should. The projects are really great. A lot of work share among offices and regions so you get exposure to projects in other parts of the country and you meet and work with people in different offices. My pay was great.

    Cons

    Not a lot of training, especially for younger staff. Despite lots of work it seemed like hardly any employees were hired and when there was new staff it was routinely management level or higher.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your younger staff. They say there is a career lattice for everyone, but very few people seemed to move beyond a designer role. Consider giving an annual bonus. Restructure health insurance to offer a lower cost option.
