    lots of opportunity for growth, development, travel, and great people to work with. Multiple locations around the globe to choose from. Great benefits.

    there really aren't any cons that don't exist at other companies in the same industry, deadlines, stress, long hours, and the usual design industry related cons.

    I worked at EDSA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great talented designers. Worked on some interesting and diverse projects in the US and around the world, in different scales. My direct manager and senior staff were very open on project emails so I got to know what's going on about projects very well which I really appreciate. Family style events and gatherings are very nice. People from different cultures enriches the company culture diversity.

    Cons

    Too many bosses, too many gossips sometimes negative. Corporate feeling is getting strong. Principals are all under great pressure of bringing money, getting things done, billing sooner, a little of lack on quality control on certain projects. Sustainable practice got started but not well applied, depending on clients's demand instead of professional principle.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent to each other instead of fighting each other. Whatever is up there can be sensed and passed on to lower level staff, which is not necessary healthy.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at EDSA full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    the company has a lot of talented people that willing to teach and share their experience. a substential portfolio of projects around world. a multi-culture family of people from different background.

    Cons

    decision making is so slow, it is always behind how the rest of the world is going forward. also, somewhere in "the system" there is a disconnection of performance and recognition, therefore, somewhat bacame a training camp for other competitors.

    Advice to Management

    if there is something need to change, change it faster. streamline the decition making. too much time spend for just management for management sake.
