    I worked at Roman and Williams full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Team with a lot of talent, especially the principals. Very creative and always striving for the highest standards.
    Some weekend pay for overtime.

    Cons

    Very little to no contact with the principals. High stress, high pressure environment. Unstructured management, top heavy, too many people giving different or conflicting information. VEEEEEERY long unpaid hours on a consisten basis. A lot of verbal abuse and condescending behavior due to stree which lead to very tense team members that all seem to turn into lonely fighers. No team spirit.
    Not a good learning environment. Extremely high turn-over, so information on current or previous projects is impossible to get to.

    Advice to Management

    More personal contact and support goes a long way.
    People are clearly not in this business for the money, but for the work and the people they connect with. A 'TEAM' will always achieve more than a single person, but if you are being treated like a factory worker that is easily replacable then it's just too easy, and at times essential, to detach yourself from the product that you are creating and the poeple that are connected with that product. It's a waste of energy and talent of what could be a potentially awesome firm.
