    Negative Outlook

    I worked at CB'a Design Solutions full-time

    Pros

    None, positioned as a worldwide presence but not actually the case. Merged with Brand Engine and positions themselves as a global brand building and packaging company but no real experience in either field.

    Cons

    Management technique seems amateur at best, no real marketing strategies or direction. Company operates with a lot of theoretical rhetoric but no real implementation plan.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your client and deliver what's needed, not what you think they need.

    Pros

    L'esprit d'équipe
    Des équipes dynamiques, un réel effort pour attirer de bons talents internationaux
    Portefeuille de clients divers, avec parfois la possibilité de choisir sur quels projets on souhaite travailler
    Un management qui fait confiance à la jeune garde créative et dynamique
    Des clients fidèles, d'anciens employés qui reviennent

    Cons

    Le management à multiples têtes, le PDG qui s'entiche de chouchous et ne jure que par eux, avant l'arrivée d'un nouveau messie
    Aucune grille de salaires, ou de réelles perspectives d'évolution de carrière. On se retrouve vite avec un plafond de verre. Les salaires sont un peu à la tête de l'employé, donnant lieu à des disparités absurdes - à profils équivalents.

    Advice to Management

    Cesser de penser en silos
    Mettre en place de véritables outils pour développer le business, mais surtout faire grandir et retenir vos meilleurs talents
