Okay ya’ll lets start some controversy. Which companies would you not work for for any amount of money, either from word of mouth or personal experience?
You’re asking us to burn bridges eh? Well, I’ve got my secret list.
But publicly it’s pretty easy to name GM and Wal Mart.
Great idea, you start…
I could list some companies…that would be fun. But the thing is that people, consultancies and companies change and in the past I have gotten pissed and written off some companies only to have them come back years later and become really good partners.
Also, I am not sure that I could honestly say I would take on a project with almost anyone for the right amount of money. Great topic though. Maybe if the list were more like this: Companies that I have had great difficulty working with.
And who said “designers arent practical”?
its the money that makes me work for any of them…
mo money, mo problems.
This is kinda like all those people on YouTube that publicly renouce the existance of God as a challenge.
You may damn yourself to Hell however you would like, but somewhere in your video you must say this phrase: “I deny the Holy Spirit.”
Why? Because, according to Mark 3:29 in the Holy Bible, “Whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit will never be forgiven; he is guilty of an eternal sin.” Jesus will forgive you for just about anything, but he won’t forgive you for denying the existence of the Holy Spirit. Ever. This is a one-way road you’re taking here.
…most of my issues have been with certain indiviuals over the years and not the company as a whole…trouble is, the design community isn’t all that large and these a–holes could popup just about anywhere…however, since most corps screen candidates with references, police records and credit checks these days, it seems to me that ‘turn-about would be fair play’ if there were somplace we could get this info like; references from former employees and vendors, job posting history and professional references of the hiring manager…
Something like this:
