    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at MetaDesign full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big clients, good exposure: you can stir a lot of projects if you take a proactive approach.

    If you care about traditional branding work without surprises and much change, it's a decent place.

    Cons

    Too big & too slow: all the typical issues of an agency that realizes too late that they missed the digitalization shift and now can't pivot quickly enough because they are just too big for that.

    Advice to Management

    Exploitation not innovation: Understand your core business and stick with it. Don't try half-heartedly to become something that you are not and aren't capable of delivering.
