    I worked at Wilson Associates full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Some large and fun projects.

    Cons

    Negative attitude of employees and management. Drama drama drama. Used to be a great office many years ago but now there is no one who cares about the designers. Even the CEO left. Everything is geared towards the clients with no regard for designers schedule, personal commitments, etc. Designers are expected to just stay late and pick up the slack. With the new management if you speak up then you get fired. The clients...

    Advice to Management

    Replace all upper management in corporate office and in Los Angeles. Cut out the drama and provide incentives like bonuses, raises, and fun outting opportunities, etc. Try to increase moral and actually listen and BELIEVE what your employees are saying. Management is too easily won over by charming fake personalities.

    I worked at Wilson Associates full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great and super creative group, good pay, and flexible work schedule

    Cons

    Some board members and principals-in-charge need to take some leadership training because they believe they can do no wrong when actuality they are the reason turnover is occurring the most and managers should treat interns with respect not like they do not have a clue what they are doing.

    Advice to Management

    Board members need to understand work/life balance and principals-in-charge need leadership training on how to give productive feedback that is given continuously not just during reviews and not just trying to tearing people apart when they ask for feedback

      Take a look at what other firms are paying. $45,000 is low compared to others. Also, most us of work overtime to complete deadlines and there are no bonuses or compensation for that hard work.
