    I worked at Z Line Designs full-time

    Pros

    The biggest "pro" to working at Z-Line Designs are the people who work there. Most everyone there are very friendly, respectful and overall really nice to be around. In regard to compensation, I believe that they are very fair. They also offer a great benefit plan!

    Cons

    They don't do enough for employee bonding and morale . I think they should try to do more outside of work.

    Advice to Management

    Management is great! The only thing that I can think of to tell Management is that they might think about promoting from within and giving the current employees a chance to do something else within the company.

    I worked at Z Line Designs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Close to freeway. Close to good food. Salary pay.

    Cons

    Basically no perks to working here. It's dead quiet at all times. Deadlines ruled the office. They don't really have a good grasp on how to market their products well, and the owner is stuck in the 80's. I don't expect Z-Line to stay afloat for too many more years.

    Advice to Management

    You laid off some of the most intensely talented people available to you because you couldn't find a use for one of the most limitless skills in the world; animation. That was a really bad move. Having animators on any team is a goldmine. Update your marketing methods and you would have seen this.

    I worked at Z Line Designs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The hours are set so there is no work to take home and you know what time you will get off of work so if you have another job or family obligations you are sure to be on time.

    Cons

    The management is simply terrible!!! They do not support their employees, back them up, or support them! They throw them under the bus every chance that they get with customers, other employees, higher level management, etc. They also cover up issues (i.e. harassment in the work place). There is also no availability for promotion in the company. If anything they demote their personnel. It is overall a very TOXIC environment to work in and I would not recommend it to anyone!!!! No one has that thick of skin!

    Advice to Management

    Be kinder to your employees! Listen to them and resolve issues when they arise! Be pro-active and not re-active when under fire. Take action when a problem arises and do not brush it under the rug or try to blow it off.

    Pros

    Small company with diverse, good people.

    Cons

    Company is not young it is over 10 years old. Confidence and communication is lacking. There are no corporate goals, mission statement. There are no cross functional meetings. No periodic staff meetings (Monthly, quarterly, or annual) This makes it hard for employees to see their contribution and therefore they lack motivation to strive for goals because there is no 'vision'. Does not promote bottom up input/ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Get continued education. Allow staff to take CE courses to gain confidence, professional knowledge and to broaden their professional experience since upward mobility is virtually impossible.
