    Pros

    This is a great place to work. Great people and always something new to dive into. Opinions are welcome and management does a fantastic job of highlighting people regardless of company standing when they come up with a good idea or project.

    Cons

    There is a lot going on. The marketing team can be taxed because there are so many brands to manage. Unfortunately you hear "that brand just doesn't do a lot for us so concentrate on something else" a lot.

    Pros

    The company cares. Leadership listens to everyone with equal attention and they appreciate good ideas. They show employees that people are number 1 by providing countless perks but more important accolades for work well done. Of course I have to mention ALL THE FOOD!!! Taco Tuesdays, Catered Lunches, every event serves delicious meals and even Lucky Charms on St. Patrick's Day!

    Cons

    I can only think of one: traffic, but that's an Austin situation.

    Pros

    There are a lot of great people that work there. I feel the culture in many of the teams is very strong and everyone works very hard to improve both themselves and the company.

    Cons

    There is a lot of growth which can be tough to deal with as well as balancing a manufacturing facility against an office facility while trying to keep everyone happy.

    I worked at BuildASign.com full-time

    Pros

    A wonderful environment, employee-friendly amenities, and a spacious office space. There are some great people at BuildASign, and those amazing coworkers make your time there worthwhile. What I learned while at BAS was valuable and will help me in the future

    Cons

    While I would recommend working for this company to 1/3 of my friends who are qualified to work there due to the positive office environment and fair wages, that low number says a lot about the grave disparities that this employer has fomented into existence. Overall I enjoyed working for this company. Even so, their strenuous attendance policy leaves any employees who have chronic illness or disabilities surreptitiously by the wayside. BuildASign.com treats their employees oppositely of the way they are so proud of touting the "love" and "empathy" they share toward their clientele. I experienced an unparalleled lack of compassion and humanity from management working for this company. I am not legally required to disclose my disability to any employer, and rightfully chose not to share that information with BuildASign. Unfortunately, I was laid off from this company as a result of doctor's appointments I had to miss work for due to a health problem I inherited that is completely unavoidable. Despite that callousness, the biggest issue I had with this company was actually the miscommunication that existed within management, which resulted in human errors regularly interrupting or negatively disrupting the employees through no fault of their own. Having worked for other much more successful tech companies in the same sector prior, I found the management at BuildASign to be extremely disorganized and inefficient. That is very ironic, considering that it is the first tech company out of several I've had a negative experience with or been laid off from in regard to my need to attend doctor appointments and having a disability.
