Graphic Designer:
Pros: I really enjoy the variety in my job, and I like to be able to manage my own time with where my workload priorities are. I enjoy seeing the designs I create come back from print, and I also enjoy seeing all of the new cutters and other products I design when they are finalized. I also really like to see my illustrations being used this has been something that I have been really pleased to be able to do. I enjoy working along side Maree when she needs help with packaging illustrations, as it is a different part of my job that can be a nice change. I also really enjoy working with everyone here and its nice to have such a great team of people in the office.
Cons: I can find it challenging when I have to work with people who can be negative, I like to work in a positive environment and it can sometimes drag me down. I feel that having meetings with all the design team would help this. I think discussing your issues your facing on specific projects might help everyone to understand what you’re working on. Workload can then be looked at and might help the situation. I can also find it challenging when I look for new suppliers, especially when I am looking for something that is new to the company (and new to me as well!). It takes a lot of time to get the information and samples I need and sometimes this can take up hours from my day.

"Jack Of All Trades, No Time To Master One."
Graphic Designer:
Being bounced around from project to project is going to be frustrating. Learn to let the big picture take precedent. If there isn't a cohesive big picture guiding your work, go elsewhere.

"First Stop On The Career Train."
Graphic Designer:
Pros: My own office. I have customized my office to my liking. Some of my co-workers are really great. I am not micro-managed. I can listen to music while I work.
Cons: The commute and there is a lot of gossip. No one will tell you what is going on in the company, you have to ask the right person.
