Doesn't Recommend

Pros

- Short project lead time, pretty satisfying to see the project complete in 3 months
- Non-management staff are great people to work with
- FBC conducts client reviews that make it possible to get feedback from clients after a project is completed
- Kitchen well-stocked with snacks

Cons

- Very poor leadership and management, lots of finger pointing and blaming of staff when sales are down
- Too much emphasis on supposed "company culture" and resulting propaganda/slogans, and too little emphasis on actual effective leadership
- High turnover in staff due to burnout and frustration
- Staff with no sales background or experience are held to sales numbers
- Employer expects that you will be available to attend meetings 12+ hours per day
- No value placed on quality of design, given a few hours to do a week's worth of design work

Advice to Management

Be more upfront with prospective employees when they interview for design positions. Don't pretend like there will be any emphasis on design. Be clear that it is a high-volume process, without much time to spend on design, and there is a heavy emphasis on sales.
