    I have been working at Cinder Block full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Environment is collegial and you work for (literally) rock 'n' roll bands.

    Cons

    Client-focused with client-centric problems. Big egos. Unrealistic expectations and over-promising galore.

    Advice to Management

    Inspire the vision. Remind people about how cool the job is. Don't sell-out.

    I worked at Cinder Block full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Worked with some hard working, dedicated, and amazing people.
    - Got to see some talented folks design and print awesome apparel.
    - Management (initially) was great.

    Cons

    Due to downsizing, a lot of what we did had to be outsourced (warehouse, printing). Everyone wore multiple hats, and quality (operations) quickly degraded.

    Advice to Management

    A little more transparency would have been good. However, because the issues happened during the height of the recession, there wasn't much that could be done.
