    I worked at Mckenna Ryan Designs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some beautiful work comes out of this company. If you are a fan of the fiber arts, then this is a haven for you. The work space is amazing too. The loft setting is in one of the best areas in Portland to work. The people in the building were amazing. I got to know many people from other businesses.

    And, as always, it is really nice to talk to fans of the artwork across the globe. You can hear their excitement when a new product comes out.

    Random pizza parties were pretty cool on the occasion.

    Cons

    There is a lot of yelling that goes on in that place. With wall to wall cement surrounding you, the sound carries and echos in your ears until you get home.

    In art fields, people get frustrated a lot. Sometimes, people find it necessary to take that frustration and aggression out on those who are the easiest targets who are undeserving, via yelling. Unfortunately, it happens to the best of us.

    Overtime pay is not actually paid by the company. You will be asked to work "without pay" or volunteer your time when you are over 40 hours per week, which is a lot of the time.

    There is a lot of hand holding with operations. With this being a newly relocated company, with little to no resources to learn from, it was a lot of baby steps to get the company back on it's feet in the new home.

    Advice to Management

    Calm down. There is no need to yell. Take a deep breath and look at the bigger picture.

    I have been working at Mckenna Ryan Designs part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone has their own job clearly defined and the entire team works together when there's a big project. The 37 hour work-week is good, and the pay is equitable. The office manager is a delight to work for and she always provides clear direction and direct feedback.

    Cons

    None really - maybe more hours and more paid vacation :-)

    Advice to Management

    Advertise more to increase sales.
