I have been working at Code and Theory full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You'll work with talented people who want to push the work forward in a fast-paced environment. You'll forge bonds with team members through project work, and the project themselves are more compelling than you'd find at another agency.

Cons

Don't expect close mentorship or career development, or to work in an environment that justifies the amount of hours you spend there. The management culture, which dominates that of the whole office, is markedly male, and time and again it appears the way to justify an idea is to yell it or argue like a child about it. This definitely limits opportunities for those unwilling or unable to act like this.

Advice to Management

Open up paths for mobility beyond the bro club/ culture of arrogance. Do some searching as to the subtleties in your everyday behavior that cause this to be the overriding company culture. Make actual investments in employees and in advancing the company's level of community.

    I worked at Code and Theory full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing talent, ideas, and production quality. You'll do good work here and learn a lot very quickly. You'll work with big clients and be in an environment that favors design.

    Cons

    Minimum pay, long/wasted hours, and high employee churn. Though you'll do good work here, you'll only do it until you inevitably burnout. Peers around you leave at various stages, due to burnout, and forcing you to be on a team of new employees for every new project.

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees more. The long hours would feel more justified.
