Web Designer in Perth:
Pros: I enjoy the small company that I work within, the homely and friendly feeling of it. It is really laid back and the dress code isn't enforced as much as it would be if we had more consultations with clients, but as I'm a designer, I can get away with wearing a lot of different things.
Cons: The management and the pay. The commute also takes ages (1 hour 1 way) for work that I could be doing at home most of the time.
