Graphic Designer in Dayton:
"Is good if you are a Robot..."
Pros: The co-workers are the best part of the job.
Cons: At this company, In this design role, you are not encouraged to be creative at all. They are a complete creative suck when it comes to ads. The senior management (who are not in the design field) dictate how the ads look and they make sure to break every design principle. The tackier it is, the more they love it. It sucks that at the end of the day, you cannot be proud or take ownership of any of the work done. They will not listen to constructive criticism due to the narcissistic working environment. Basically, you are a monkey cranking out bad designs day in and day out. For anyone who takes pride in what they do.... Stay away...far far away from this place!
