    I have been working at Kobi Karp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    During Hurricanes last year and this year, where most of companies, even city workers were threatened to fire their employees for not coming to work, this firm paid its workers and made no demands on them and even people who didn't come in for over five days did not feel at risk of losing their jobs management should know some people took advantage of it which makes it a bit tough to meet project deadlines.

    great projects
    lots of independence
    amazing office atmosphere
    open environment
    management easy to approach
    ceo works one on one with all staff

    Cons

    parking
    some people in the office don't carry their fair share of the workload leaving it up to the rest of us.
    management gives too many opportunities to underperforming people and does not let people go

    Design Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    This has to be, in all my years of working, the most upside down interview process I have ever been through. The good news is, as brief as it was, I got to see the cards, and Kobi Karp will always stack the deck. I never really did understand what they were after, but it wasn't a happy long term employee who could grow with the firm.
