    I worked at AKA NYC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun company culture. Great perks if you love theatre. Lots of creative artsy types.

    Cons

    All employees are overworked and stressed out. It's a culture of 'who can work the longest hours' and be the most stressed out. Everyone acts like they're curing cancer, which they're not. Pay is also not great.

    Advice to Management

    Make people leave the office and work less.
