A large company that is still run like a family.
No corporate red tape.
Direct access to the owners.
Room to evolve vertically or horizontally.
Smart people.
Great clients list.
Wide variety of project types.

Cons

Rapid growth has its challenges.
Agency life can be stressful at times.

Advice to Management

The management team should continue what they are doing. No company is perfect, but overall, they are doing a lot right to be this successful. They listen to the staff, at least those who speak to them. They reward hard work and don't have patience for those who slack.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listen to their employees. Twist Image experienced rapid growth (now with 2 offices and 100+ employees) and it seems that the management is still running the place as if it was a small design box. They have very good talent and they should work harder to keep them. They also have allot of young talent that needs professional guidance and training. They don't seem to realize that if they would invest more in their employees, they would get a 10 folds return out of them.

    Pros

    Great people
    Big name clients
    Big projects
    Bleeding edge work
    Lots of on-the-fly training (sink or swim)
    Great reputation
    Lots of varied intelligence to soak in

    No sense of stability or job security
    High turn over
    Not a lot of room for personal leadership

    Advice to Management

    Great at hiring amazing people, not so great at helping them grow within the company. So many talented people came and left, and the vast majority of them are now in more senior positions with better pay. It really is a situation where they bring in great talent and then make it almost impossible to want to say. Most find tremendous professional growth for a little while, but then can't move up or feel satisfied with the work, so their work starts to wane and it's only a matter of time before they leave one way or another.
