    Pros

    Wonderful people! Everyone is very friendly! They use Revit, but have a very structured approach to using Revit.... at least it's better than a firm that still uses AutoCrap. The projects are ok, depends on who you're working with (team). Overall, very pleasant company to work for. They promote mindfulness and no egos. An architecture firm that doesn't promote egos?!? I know, I didn't believe it at first but everyone here is kind and helpful. No egos allowed!!!

    Cons

    Office location, but that's changing Spring 2016! AMA is moving to downtown Portland along the waterfront in a building they designed!!!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it going!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ankrom Moisan Architects (Seattle, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I had submitted my portfolio and a cover letter and mentioned that my employer at the time was under paying me. I found the job through AIA Seattle and checked my salary based on the city standard set by them. My portfolio, attitude, and mastery of the programs I am responsible for were evaluated during an in person interview. My interviewers were very kind and great at listening. They also generally knew all of the programs I would be using. This is very rare I've found and certainly helped my case.
