    Pros

    Smart, great people and a good work environment. Dedication to design is genuine.

    Cons

    Politics run rampant but that's to be expected. I was in a satellite office and learned quickly that Madrid rules the roost. Difficult to work with clients who didn't trust me or my team because we were in the US. They didn't utilize my office as well as they should have and missed many opportunities to grow by dismissing our work.
