"It is fun work."
Pros: I love being able to create new ideas, and designs. I create specialty art for companies that sell our items in big box stores. I take a lot of pride in the things I create, especially when I have the time to actually work on the art.
Cons: Being told to make something "trendy", "hip" or some other semblance of those words with out any actual direction. Sometimes your ideas are dismissed easily and it is frustrating. Not given enough time to actually work on the given projects and feeling rushed. And when our warehouse is backed up we are pulled fro our jobs to pack, pull and tag. It is the worst part of the job, but this is also something that happens when you are apart of a smaller company. But being out in the warehouse for 3 months is tiring. I've hurt my hands, ankle, back, and I've got more sore muscles than I ever wanted.
