    Pros

    Everyone in the company is welcoming, friendly, and vibrantly creative! Great studio culture, easy to make friends. Good transparency, from what I could tell. I was only there for a summer, but the partner in the St. Louis office made a point to reach out to the interns and ask about their experience.

    Cons

    Overtime is kind of expected. Not all of the time, but there are definitely intense periods I noticed while in the office where people were having to come in over the weekends before a big deadline or stay pretty late during the week. I was not on a project that required much overtime, so I guess it just depends on the project, project manager, and client.

    Advice to Management

    Open an office in Chicago! I'm only half kidding. I love St. Louis, but I do wish that PGAV was located in a bigger city, but that could just be me.

    Designer/Illustrator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at PGAV Destinations (Saint Louis, MO) in July 2017.

    Interview

    They were not straight forward. The entire thing was left open ended. I wish they had just been honest and said straight up, "You're no the person for this job." I needed to move on and make other arrangements but they left it hanging.

    Interview Questions

    • They said that my portfolio did not exhibit radical creativity then asked how I would be able to fulfill the requirement to come up with really creative work.   1 Answer
