        Yeah, only have to deal with the client, once the project is out of the door you can forget about it.

        Startups you have to deal with stakeholders, investors, other people in your own company redesigning each others work without telling them then sending it straight to the top in private to try and further their own careers. 90% of it is just office politics.

        It's garbage.

          Interesting and very valid point! I suspect some agencies will also have this issue, between other designers and all the [art/design/creative] directors etc. But this is certainly a painful problem with some companies and startups. The games and politics suck.
