    I worked at Jones Knowles Ritchie for less than a year

    Pros

    From the top down there are no egos. Everyone is a collective that share a commonality in being world class. The upper mgmt speaks directly to all the employees the same and is transparent about their direction and expectations. They take great pride in presentation and value awards because ultimately it’s a Medal of Honor within the industry. Heavy attention to detail yet they champion the ideas. Nothing is sacrificed...

    Cons

    In theory the magnet wall for critiquing work seems perfect-Operational nightmare. :) give yourself extra time to hang work and beware of the flying magnet bullets. Not much negative to be said here. The cereals they generously provide for breakfast are a little sugary???

    I worked at Jones Knowles Ritchie full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Every person here is extremely devoted. The design team is talented and willing to go the extra mile to create the best work. Everyone is always striving to do the best work possibly, and they make strides to improve as they rapidly grow. There wasn't a single person that was unpleasant while I was here, and that really speaks to the culture that everyone supports each other. They have a lot of great clients and opportunities...

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours can be long, but this is natural in an agency setting. People are expected to work hard because of the high standards that JKR collectively holds themselves to, which is to produce the best work.

    Advice to Management

    New talent and recruitment is needed as does every company, but with the amount of work that comes in sometimes there needs to be more heads to take on the workload.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Jones Knowles Ritchie for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits perks, friday drinks

    Cons

    Favouritism, no creative freedom, old school culture where if you are like them you are included in the team, otherwise you are treated like an outsider and your ideas are not welcome. Old style branding, they don't bring in fresh ideas. Condescending management. Its like an old country club environment.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in better open minded managers, senior designers. Learn to accept new ideas and people. Don't misuse your privilege.

    Firstly the projects and breadth of work is incredible. The talent and passion at JKR is unbelievable, there are so many great minds that all help achieve the best from a project and are great to learn from. Everyones opinion matters. Great bunch of genuine individuals that have a fun time together. Other perks are awesome - Summer trip to Portugal, social events and the little things like breakfast and endless...

    Cons

    Generally pay lower than industry standard

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more communication about other work performances. Not all praise or criticism should come at annual reviews.

    Jkr has a great atmosphere, top clients - a nice mix of big companies and exciting start ups. Decent perks. High standard of work and a great culture.
