    I worked at DCA Design full-time

    Pros

    There are some genuinely clever people working at DCA, and the majority of staff are likeable, open and friendly. Half-day Friday's are great for work/life balance. DCA are rightly well-regarded for clever, dependable engineering-based solutions.

    Cons

    A large-ish consultancy with a small-minded and risk-averse attitude, particularly to progress and change (the opposite of design in other words). Like Warwick itself, DCA seems stuck in the 1990's in an insular and slightly arrogant vacuum. There is sometimes a whiff of 'Stepford Wives' there, an atmosphere of 'going through the motions' with a forced smile. In fact if you are looking for a creative design agency... then move along, there's nothing to see here. Offices (some nice, most awful) are spread around town, making communication poor and people feeling silo-ed.
