    I worked at Archetype Group full-time

    Pros

    Great founding team, nice office

    Cons

    Lots of conflicts... Racist management towards local staff in Vietnam. It is like living back in French colonial times

    I worked at Archetype Group full-time

    Pros

    Exotic office locations, nice employees, and most importantly a lot of responsibility is given to you here and you can learn lots of different things about the job you maybe could not at a bigger firm. Expat employees start out with 24 paid days off a year.

    Cons

    Many projects are pushed out the door quickly and some of the clients they take on are not quality. Your portfolio may suffer. Pay is not the best and if you are not in the headquarters office good luck trying to get anything from them or make a complaint.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time training younger staff members and do not talk only to the design directors at the branch offices but to the employees as well to get the full picture.
