    I worked at Beardwood&Co. full-time

    Pros

    Beardwood really cares about the growth of their employees, they have yearly 360 reviews that end with making goals for the next year. You are given a senior team member as a mentor who you check in with monthly which I found invaluable. Team members are also encouraged to give lunch & learns, you are given a stipend to grow outside of the studio (AIGA membership, Business classes, museum tickets etc) and there is a weekly happy hour in the studio. The people are so smart and kind, it's very easy to make friends with everyone and there are always a variety of projects coming in. Management is very good at being transparent about what is happening on the inside of the business, which is pretty cool.

    Cons

    The studio is an open floor plan so you may overhear crits and phone calls, but headphones are allowed so you tend to get used to it. As is industry standard, there tend to be a few nights of working late, but the silver lining is you can order dinner. There are always a lot of people involved in every project, which can be good or can be annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the same expectations for all employees, whether they are men, women, have families or don't, etc.
