I have been working at RTKL Associates full-time (More than 8 years)
By being such a large firm RTKL has lots of opportunities and project variety. I feel that the legitimacy and respect I get from the industry, manufacturers and product reps here is really helpful to my career. My personal experience with staff and management has been overall very positive. This has been a great environment to mature as a designer and project leader in.
There are times when changes to technology, policy, and culture can take longer to implement than one would like due to the size of the company.
Advice to Management
Keep up embracing good ideas wherever they come from. Find ways to embrace risk and innovation in a way that works in a large company. Consider some projects as "moon shot" or "gambling fund" projects that you are willing to accept as loss on, if it comes to that, in exchange for learning something.

I applied on LinkedIn. I had a phone interview about 2 weeks later, then an in-person interview 3 weeks after that. During the in person interview, I went through my portfolio, and asked them questions I had prepared. They really didn't ask me anything at all. It was very conversational and relaxed, which seems to be the vibe of the office. I am to hear back sometime this week, but that was about it.
