Senior Graphic Designer
in Huntington Beach, CA

"The company is great if you're right out of school or an ex pro surfer. Lacks advancement opportunities and there are too many cooks in the kitchen.I wouldn't recommend the company as a place of employment to anyone serious about advancing their career in design.However, the environment is relaxed and easy going... maybe too easy going. The people are great but management is what'sbringing the company down."

"They draw you in with the laid back environment, but looking back, the perks did not even out the work. The company is in a constant state of flux, they laid off a bunch of people just to hire them back on as freelancers to save money."

Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
