    I worked at Renfro Design Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with, people are smart, considerate and caring. It was a wonderful office culture, very supportive of work and personal lives.

    Cons

    The benefits were ok, not bad for the Lighting design Industry, but not the best. Work-life balance was not the best, often there were long hours and disregard for previously organized after work plans on a regular basis. Not much room to move upward and grow.

    Advice to Management

    Be considerate of your employees/underlings time and don't set unreasonable expectations for deadlines.

    Recommends

    I worked at Renfro Design Group for less than a year

    Pros

    I found people that I worked with very nice, helpful and interested in teaching you. As an intern in 3 months I learned more then I thought I could. I also got exposure to an amazing projects from private apartments to museums and city blocks.

    Cons

    It might seem too slow or boring for people who are used to crazy design environments with tones of deadlines, screaming and drama. That's the only "bad" thing I can think of. Or and a lot of sweets in the office - might be dangerous for someone who is trying to keep fit. Just kidding.
