Excellent workplace atmosphere with focus on employee well-being
FREELANCE ART DIRECTOR (Former Employee) – Troy, MI – June 15, 2017
Overall, Leo Burnett Detroit is a wonderful company to work for. Regular and freelance employees are treated with respect by the project managers and creative directors. Designers have the opportunity to take ownership of projects and are not micro-managed. Employees are encouraged to allow time to schedule doctor appointments, etc, without needing to go through hoops to get approval for time off. On the flip side, there can be a lack of feedback regarding projects and one-on-one time with the creative directors. The large size of the creative department often results in gaps of communication in which only some of the employees are notified of company meetings and events.
Positive work environment, themed lunch parties, free snacks, interesting industry presentations
Lack of career guidance, poor communication
