    I worked at Steelcase (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    High expectations of employees which creates an environment of highly driven, hard-working people. Great team environment and sharing of ideas.

    Cons

    High expectations - tough to have a work/life balance. Management gives the impression that they value design, but does not have the same value as others in the company. Does not give as much credit to the company designers as they should.

    Advice to Management

    Some of the new concepts that I am seeing outside consultants developing have already been experiments by the in-house designers. The consultants are taking these proven designs and just refining them.
