I worked at Upstairs full-time (More than a year)
It seemed like it could be a great place to work and had real potential. Seemingly talented people with an impressive client roster.
Most of the employees are freelance and dont even live in miami with a few exceptions. The place is poorly run with little regard for employees and limited regard for clients.
Advice to Management
Step back and bring in people who know the industry and have good solid reputations.
I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Upstairs.
Met with one of the owners who's main objective was to get as much negative information about the employer that I left.
