    Current Employee - Former Brand Creative Contractor in Redwood City, CA
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The pay is reasonably good for the work. The name looks good on a resume. Good work quality produced and knowledgable group. Good peer level coworkers to work with.

    Cons

    People are not valued for their knowledge and-or experience. Things are done because it is the way it has always been done vs. finding better options or listening to better ideas. Hierarchical and stifling with a culture of fear of the managers above you. Everyone is always guessing what the head creative person wants, and good ideas are killed based on guesses vs. being presented and finding out.

    Fight for a better idea against the opinion of a manager; you might be looking for a new job.

    Advice to Management

    Care about employee growth. Trust others opinions and collaborate more within the team and outside of the department. The stability of the contract system leaves everyone feeling precarious. Contractors just go along with what the managers say since they will stay longer if they do.
