      ASTOUND - 2021 Review

      Pros

      - The employees at the company are truly great to work with. Everyone is always there to support each other, even when it's out of their "job responsibility" or maybe not part of their day-to-day job function. - The diversity of projects we have the opportunity to work on are incredible. Anything from digital engagements, retail store construction, branded environment pop ups - you are never stuck doing the same thing every day and can feel comfortable enough to vocalize if you want to do something different or feel something might be better suited to your skill set. - Your opportunity for personal development and growth are huge if you put the effort in!

      Cons

      Communication & clarity to employees has been challenging the past year (COVID restructuring, remote office environments) as our business has had to adapt quickly based on our industry. Our type of work is very hands on and is always best suited with employee collaboration happening in person. Management has identified this as an opportunity to get better across the board and has committed to focusing efforts on providing more transparency & tools to help employees be more successful.

      Pros

      None. Everybody throws each other under the bus and points fingers for the incompetence!

      Cons

      Upper Management is incompetent and a bunch of snakes. Theyll fire you for anything, no loyalty, fake smiles and they'll send you down the river for their unprofessionalism & ineptitude! They like to fire people right before your benefits start in 3 months.
