    I worked at Dragon Rouge full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Global present (with 9 offices located in major cities), well-organized internal database for case studies, well-known in packaging and brand design, well-known in Europe and the US, experience working with big international clients.

    Cons

    Aim too high but not willing to pay bigger bucks to bring in experienced professionals. Weak HR system and financial operation. They claim to be a "very creative" agency but I didn't see any traces of very creative people whom I worked with so far, let alone a creative culture within the organization. I think also depends on which office you work at, I believe the Paris and NYC office are quite good.

    Advice to Management

    You can talk BIG but you will also have to act BIG too (in terms of salary, company training, culture)

    I worked at Dragon Rouge full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Creative work environment. Friendly and smart people. Nice office, personal atmosphere. Well run business.Some great clients, constantly trying to evolve. Hold regular personal development and training sessions and seminars.

    Cons

    As most agencies, deadline driven environment and focus on profitability and utilisation can often kill creativity or more forward looking perspectives. Recently has gone through a lot of changes and group level and local offices don't always see eye to eye.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in great people but ensure that newcomers have a mandate to take responsibility, drive change and disrupt the legacy elements of the business.

Since starting full-time this has continued, with more fun projects working alongside a great, friendly team of designers, strategists and consultants.

    Can't think of any as of yet!
