    Approves of CEO

    I worked at The Gettys Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Big name in hospitality but isn't really that exited when you work there.
    some of the team members are very cool and interesting people.

    Cons

    Treat intern very poorly
    Designer barley interact with you
    don't value talent
    most of your task will be delivering mail or cleaning the kitchen.
    Waste of time. Look somewhere that you can gain real world experience
    poor communication.

    I worked at The Gettys Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    360 view of and exposure to the hospitality design business. Pretty cool coworkers. Interesting projects.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid is what you should know before getting a job there. It really is a sweatshop that churns out designs with almost no appreciation.

    Advice to Management

    Treat the people who work like dogs for you with respect. Pay them fair wages.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at The Gettys Group full-time

    Pros

    They have some really fantastic projects. You will learn quite a lot on the job.

    Cons

    What they sell you on and what you actually end up doing are two different things.
    A very greedy company that doesn't share the wealth with the workers.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with potential employees.
    Be honest with current employees.

    Pros

    -exposure to larger scale of projects
    -at smaler offices you get to see different aspects of the projects

    Cons

    -demotion is often practiced here, if you had a higher position at another firm, they will tell you you're not good enough and need to accept a lower position and prove yourself to them
    -after the demotion, obvious they won't pay you very much for what you're worth
    -in order for them to grow, you will need to stop growing, so they have more money to hire more people
    -very corporate
    -management is a failure
    -filled with lies
    -more business oriented
    -fast turn around
    -at one of the locations, 9 people quit within a month; while at another, no one has worked there for more than a year; something to be said about that.

    Advice to Management

    Treating people fair is a good start; abusing employees' talent and effort is not the way to run a business, nor a way to be successful.
