    I have been working at Konsus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Plenty of exciting design work that I get to choose from, there's now a strong career path opportunity going from a Designer, Senior Designer and then Art Director. I'm able to work fully remote, have a flexible schedule and get to work with a great global community!

    Cons

    They’ve been hiring a lot of talented designers but still need more since there’s so many projects these days

    Cons

    - I cannot see much

  3. Konsus works. But only if you work on tons of projects.

    I have been working at Konsus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    • Extremely helpful staff if you're new to the company. They will help you land your first projects and until you get acclimated to their system/work flow. • Just deliver consistent great work and more projects will come your way. No need to apply in the long run. • Great work environment as long as you build friendship with the core team, the AM/PMs and fellow specialists. • If you are looking for a consistent...

    Cons

    • Starting base rate is only at $12 per hour regardless of (1) previous experience and (2) job to be fulfilled. Sometimes you have to work on a simple project, sometimes a highly complex project, and the base rate is still the same. • The hours you can spend on a project is determined by the client's budget. So most of the time, to finish a project, you need to work a lot of hours for free. Even if you try to negotiate,...

    Advice to Management

    Konsus have gone a long way since I joined it and I know that it's gonna get better in the future. But I have a few things: • I think that you need to narrow down more the types of specialists you have in Konsus. The quality of the product gets better if specialists really "specialize" in, say, just one to three skills. • The base rate of $12 is really low. Hope it could somehow be raised soon. And that it'd be...

    I worked at Konsus for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - It's an option in which you can work from any part of the world. - Good colleagues. Willing to help. - Diplomatic VP. He cares about the business.

    Cons

    - You will work way more hours than you are actually being paid. - Tons of uncertainty/ambiguity in internal procedures. - Rate per hour is not ideal. Actually very low vs market standards. - They will expect Project Management to spend time following up with old leads without you being paid for it. Also invest time looking for designers who have availability to perform any certain task (this can take some hours)....

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your internal teams. They don't want to complain just to give a hard time. Right now there is a lot of demotivation inside. How can you expect to retain the best talent if you don't pay them as the best talent? Improve the uncertainty/ambiguity about internal procedures, scores, expect outcomes, etc. Change the way some people are approaching to certain team members.
