Pros Luckily had a chance to work there when there were still some of the people responsible for the DK magic. Unfortunately, they were pushed out by leadership early on and then management drove the company down. Cons The reputation of DK is what attracts a lot of people. Unfortunately, this isn't the reality of the work or who is left. The leadership makes very self-serving decisions and treats the people and vision very poorly. Advice to Management Hire all new management. Talk to the creative talents doing the work and evolve this company from the ground up.

You can’t shape culture from a cubicle. So in 1995, we moved to the kitchen. Conversation and ideas seem to flow more freely in kitchens. There’s no pretense: just one big table that brings everyone together—creative, strategy, production, and client—to talk, to work, to pass things around. It’s okay if things get messy, because the collaboration is priceless.
