Visual Designer Reviews

Q: What is it like working as a Visual Designer?

Visual Designer in Seattle:
"Not a creative nurturing environment."
Pros: The benefits and the relaxed atmosphere
Cons: It’s tech dominated and favored. Most stakeholders over look design and devalue it.

Visual Designer:
An agency that is stuck in the past and refuses to make changes or progress or listen to any advice. Absolutely zero culture. If it wasn't for the employees then birthdays, anniversaries, etc. None would be celebrated. The owners have no drive, no vision or inspiration, and it doesn't even seem like they like their jobs let alone design. Owners take zero accountability and push the blame onto everyone else if something goes wrong, but no acknowledgment when things go well. Rusty can be incredibly rude and inappropriate but expects you to deal with it because "thats just how he is." Women are consistently paid less than men and men are credited with the accomplishments of women over and over again. Compensation is way below industry standard and the benefits are way lacking as well. Don't expect to work from home ever without an extreme amount of guilt thrown at you. The owner always sides with the clients and never has the employees backs. There are good people who work here but they all end up leaving because there is no opportunity for growth, poor pay, no appreciation of staff, and a complete lack of any structure and processes.

Visual Designer in Morristown:
Pros: Many good restaurants and services
Cons: Traffic in the Area, hard to find parking outside of work area
