I have been working at Design & Source Productions full-time (More than 10 years)
My favorite pro is the sense of feeling good about what we do. The company is a leader in sustainability and making the world a better place. We have done significant things like help design the "HOW2RECYLE" label can be seen on many brands packaging. We have done so many fun and feel good community service projects on company time too.... like decorating the whole VA Medical Center Hospital in NYC for the Holidays, etc. The stuff we do to make money is usually beautiful (depending on the client) but I love feeling proud when I see our products in Starbucks, MoMA, and on the street. We are in a constant environment of learning.and trying new things. And lots of interesting travel too.
This is not a job for everyone. If you are just looking for a 9-5 job stay away. It is for high energy and knowledge hungry people.
Advice to Management
Keep up the community service projects. They make everyone feel so good.
