Designer (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 16 January 2018
Unfortunately the company is managed and run by the sales staff, not by the original owner. So I was designing for the sales staff, who never let me meet with the actual clients, which is just wrong. They then presented the designs to the clients, wearing their "designer" hat! These sales people were middlemen, in other words. The hardest part of the job was dealing with people who were not the real stake-holders interested in the quality of the design. The most enjoyable part of the job was when there was an opportunity to do some interesting design, which was infrequent.
Interesting connection to Expoplex - a plastcs manufacturing

Holman exhibits is driven by sales who have very little technical background. Their newly hired upper management team (one of them was brought over by GM - makes you question hiring process at the company) is all talk, power tripping and ignorant. These people will make work unnecessary complicated and will blame you for their fault.
I've seen people come and go on a weekly basis. This company expects you to pick everything up from day 1 while not giving any directions. This is just ridiculous.
