    Pros

    Agency has grown from a small print shop to a more diverse print/branding/web company over the years due to the talent that's attracted. This also makes it a very open and welcoming environment that produces great work when everyone is allowed to focus. Team members are skilled and experienced, and opinions and perspectives are shared openly and respected.

    Management and ownership are incredibly flexible with hours and work arrangements so as long as there is a long track record of performance.

    Cons

    Constant snags occur in internal processes due to overthinking simple problems. Often times resulting in better work, but sometimes hindering timetables and internal production pipeline dramatically.

    Lack of vertical structure across some teams minimizes opportunities for mentoring. Great if the entire team is self-motivated and at least a little competitive, not so great if someone needs direction.

    Pros

    Some flexibility with working hours 8-4, 9-5, 10-6, whatever will work with your schedule outside of work; pretty typical for an office. Open office is nice, if your into that kind of thing.

    Cons

    Leadership at the company is terrible, one person in charge acting like a dictator; everyone else is beneath him and he does whatever he wants with no consequences. Being the owner of the company is great, but it doesn't entitle you to treat your employees like second class citizens, they're people not money machines.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the CEO he is not good at motivator, or inspiring people, it's one "crisis" to the next and nothing ends up being a priority, it means that nothing ever gets done.

    Pros

    Teammates are generally supportive.
    Some Project work is good.
    Location is good.

    Cons

    No trust in employees abilities or skills. It is common place to yell and fight in meetings. Senior level management undermines and turns employees against one another. HR function was recently added but isn't trusted to oversee all the functions. Benefits are a joke, if you sign up for 401K don't expect to be able to manage the investments - even though it's your money, the account holder holds power of investment.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees to do their best, you don't know everything. Ramp up your benefits - this isn't an environment people want to stay in. Reward your best workers.
