The overall attitude of long term employees brings the spark of new employee attitudes down.
Support from management
Supervisor would rather design and talk about their designs. Mentoring and design critiques aren't likely.
Some work well, other departments work as if they are individual companies.
Freedom to work independently
Plenty of work, but not adequate supervision. Expect many revisions.
This is the most frustrating thing at this place. Lack of communication leads to unhappy employees and clients. The clients' requests don't reach those doing the design or construction.
Women don't have the same opportunities as men. And expect to hear many inappropriate comments.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Older employees are hired here.
They do let you take improvement classes.
Overall compensation for your work
Very low salary for the hours expected. No bonuses.
Office / Work Environment
Nice office space.
The company cares about the environment. More could be done with recycling.
This is a major drawback. Expect to work 7-5 at a minimum. If that's all you work here, you'll be a slacker. Expect to work evening and Saturday hours with no trade off for other hours. You will be called and expected to answer at any hour.
The company is known for good work. But there is a lot of internal negative talk.
You won't get fired.
It's mostly all one floor.
The company turns their head if improvements will cost money.
They do fun projects! Great variety of designs.
Inclusive / Diverse
Wide variety of ideas and employee types.
Suggestions for improvement
- Remove the bad apples and bring in passionate talent. Follow through on what you say you will do. Compensate those who do well.
What I like about the company
Long standing company with large client base of exciting properties. Artwork and design skills will improve while working here.
What I dislike about the company
The company is stuck in old ways and not open to new ideas. Lack of communication is frustrating and wastes time.
