    I worked at Craftsy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Craftsy. The culture is hardworking but genrally lighthearted and eager welcoming. Folks take the quality of their work very seriously. Very. These leads to honest feedback and motivates a culture of growth.

    For me, much of that growth came with the flexibility to get involved in areas outside of my expertise. This was a major highlight. The ability to work with fellow creatives on photography and motion graphics teams has made me a more wellrounded designer.

    I also felt that most folks had a genuine respect for the impact of good design.

    Oh, and the Pac-Man,and Super Smash Bros tournaments were a great perk, if that's your thing.

    Cons

    The frequent organizational changes. It is (or at least was) very much a growing company. What worked at one stage does not always scale effectively. A willingness to endure inconvenient (but in my opinion necessary) desk swaps, role realignments and even manager changes is necessary.

    For me, this was more of an inconvenience than a con. Go with the flow and take advantage of the opportunities to voice your opinion.
