Unispace is not what they seem…
Pros: None. I worked at Unispace full-time. People were polite and somewhat nice although clueless about design/construction/interior furnishings. There was no process or software to support the work, everything was tracked manually by using spreadsheets.
Cons: Management doesn't have a design background or higher education so there is no clear direction (nor do they believe in higher education). It's disorganized and there's no project management or leadership. They lack designers and the skills for the work so they have to fly designers/non-brethren from location to location regularly. They hire people with the skills they are lacking in and pass them off as their own since you work for them. They are constantly changing the name of the company, i.e., legal DBA or a completely different name altogether. Finally to make matters worse, they're purchasing items off the internet and re-selling them at an outrageous margin; they're also boot-legging name brand & proprietary products from smaller aligned dealerships or of their own other Unispace offices in different states. The final nail in the coffin is they have other PB/EB from Canada that purchases bulk containers of less-than-stellar quality furnishings, re-brand it and sell it to the Unispace PB offices. Along the way, they offer customized finishes/options, but fail to meet quality and engineering standards that is found in the major manufacturers’ worldwide.
Advice to management: Don't parade the company as something other than the truth and don't pass yourself off as a design turn-key operation.
