Entrepreneurial and fun-loving culture; variety of projects; very smart and fun colleagues; energy/green/accessibility work aligns with ideals about improving our environment. Steve Winter himself is an inspiration to the employees.
Loose management and corporate structure is both a blessing and a curse. Some aspects of the business resemble a much smaller firm, and may need to change to accommodate a 100+ person reality.
Advice to Management
Invest in core services (HR, Admin), and promote managers who truly want to manage rather than those with technical expertise and seniority.

- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 1+ week – interviewed at Steven Winter Associates (New York, NY) in October 2014.
Applied online to the email address listed on their website and received a request for an interview 12 hours later despite being a new graduate with only 5 months experience in the field. Quick response from a renowned company, that is always a plus!
Got to the interview and was placed in a conference room with 3 employees - a VP, and two senior level engineers/analysts. It started out with general questions of what projects I had worked on previously, what I knew about the company, why I wanted to be a part of their team etc. All basic stuff.
Throughout the interview the VP would interject and ask very specific questions about my experience (what the operating specifications of different HVAC equipment was, what the insulation inside the walls were etc.). I personally felt that this was extremely rude - he is either VERY detail oriented or believes everyone is lying. He ended the interview with a very sarcastic "Thanks for going over your experience with us." The experience was very unprofessional given that they called me 12 hours after I submitted my resume. They must not have read over it very well then.
