    I have been working at Speck Design

    Pros

    The people are genuinely nice, do great work and the clients are Fortune 100 and start-ups, too. Something for everyone. Lots of team building and socializing makes people bond. Relaxed and creative atmosphere and amazingly focused on solving the problem, making things work really well. Passionate. Proud of work but not cocky.

    Cons

    Free food. And lots of it. Am gaining weight weekly. More than twenty words about weight gain due to free food is not easy. But I did it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be late for meetings...that goes for everyone. Including anyone reading this. Hugely disrespectful when people are late for meetings.

    I have been working at Speck Design full-time

    Pros

    The work is very interesting and you get lots of variety. The people are friendly and talented. It's nice to have everyone from research and strategy through industrial design and engineering under one roof.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive and raises are very rare. They don't have good procedures and mentorship opportunities for entry/mid-level employees. The management team has some good ideas but can send mixed messages and doesn't follow through consistently.
