    Not a company but a collection of individual studios

    Pros

    Some genuinely nice people, but mostly in middle and lower levels.

    Cons

    This is a design firm that is run by engineers (President & COO). That is a bad combination, since engineers believe they really make the money that makes the firm stay afloat.

    The firm stresses a collaborative atmosphere, but that's nonsense. They are just a dozen or so individual studios, each run by a partner. There is lots of territoriality. In their definition, "collaborating" means sharing us junior staff across projects, not really collaborating between studios and practices. And there is very little chance for advancement.

    This firm lost a ton of money and people during the recession - many firms did. They also lost a lot of offices - at least half of their locations are now gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop running like a bunch of private studios led by engineers.
