    Pros

    Stimulating, globally focussed environment with an emphasis on the power of design to transform businesses & lives. You are encouraged to follow your passions and have them contribute to the rest of the firm. Employee ownership contributes to a feeling of collective responsibility for the future.

    Cons

    You are fully responsible for your own success which includes fighting to be on a good project team. Document all your accomplishments in a demonstrable way and be prepared to fight for recognition.

      Pros

      Projects are awesome and people talented, def a place to work to learn and understand a different vision, strategy and simply perspective on design.

      Cons

      Hours are long, life balance difficult, and the turn over ends up being very high.
