    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.
