Teamwork

rather than working together as a team people work separately on their own ideas with the hopes to gain approval from the owner which makes the environment very competitive. The art directors like to pit people against each other thinking that they will get better quality work out of you.

Freedom to work independently

The owner tends to give you the work that she knows you do best. This approach doesn't work since she won't give you work that challenges you. She decides what's best for you and safe for the company and micromanaged everyone too.

Gender Equality

The owner definitely defers to men more than women.

Career Development

It's a good place for a young designer to learn how the programs and how the pace of a studio works but after 2 - 3 years it's wise to leave. There is no hierarchy in this office. There are 10 creatives - 4 out of the 10 are art directors which is totally crazy.

Office / Work Environment

All equipment is state of the art and up to date. Ventilation is awful. There's a noisy air conditioner that is on even. In the winter because the ventilation is so bad. Lighting is fine.

Work-Life Balance

Deadlines can be demanding sometimes but overall you leave on time and rarely work weekends.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Need to hire a creative director that can create a creative vision for the the company. the owner needs to develop trust in her employees and take more risks. She plays it safe all the time and goes out of her way to protect her company to a fault.

What I like about the company

It's a great place for someone just getting out of school and needs to break in to graphic design. The projects can be challenging and fun. The people are generally nice. It's a small office so the politics aren't horrible.

What I dislike about the company

The company doesnt really have a clear direction. The owner has no vision and is only in the business for the money and not for the love of the graphic design industry. The owner brings her family issues into the office so the atmosphere can be very unprofessional.
