    I worked at Arrowstreet full-time

    Pros

    Friendly coworkers, great office, fun workplace, good hours. You will get design responsibility right away even at entry level, if that is what you want.

    Cons

    Management can be poor at times. Lack of standards for anything across the board(HR, project delivery, process). One could see this as "relaxed" or "laid back", or one could see this as "lacking in organization." The different studios don't seem to really communicate with eachother. Quality of life between each studio varies greatly. Lack of timely and honest/assertive feedback. There is another... glassdoor review on here that says "There's a sense that it's more important to market ideas in a cool way than to have a rigorous body of work," and that is really an excellent description of certain parts of the studio, and of how they value employees.

    Advice to Management

    You are and will be able to attract young talented designers because it is an attractive and fun workplace and your ability to "market ideas in a cool way", but its apparent that they will move on quite quickly as evidenced by recent departures of extremely talented people. If you take a look at those who are in leadership roles and how long they have been at the company, it becomes extremely apparent that you... don't develop people into leadership roles, you prefer to hire instead.
