    I have been working at Sasaki Associates full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    initial experience was greatly positive, there are many obvious perks that are offered (yoga classes, in house art exhibits,) also many young talented designers who work here

    Cons

    the firm is a long standing establishment with over 200 employees, change and flexible structure is not something that happens quickly

    Advice to Management

    suggestions would include less structured presentations/meetings and more simplified conversations addressing the firm's vision/ design/ goals

    Pros

    Wide variety of clients, interesting work, definite appreciation for all iterations of design, very multi-disciplinary, clearly value their interns, didn't feel belittled

    Cons

    Not a huge amount of cohesion within the Graphic Design Department, some work was particularly tedious, graphic designers often were asked to do menial work because they were the only ones with knowledge of the Creative Suite

    Advice to Management

    Expand the Graphic Design department to include production artists and project managers that cater specifically to the work being done within the department.
