    Pros

    Creative and dynamic work environment. Company has strong values and clear goals. Continuous Improvement is a top priority allowing the company to make changes whenever a great suggestion is made that would help productivity. Upper management is very approachable and happy to train new employees and answer questions. They are also open minded and do a great job implementing new ideas.

    Cons

    I don’t have any complaints.

    Pros

    Over the course of my rewarding career with Array, I have been trusted to complete challenging initiatives and have been given increased responsibilities. Management appreciates the need for flexibility and does not micro manage if employees demonstrate initiative. Tools to get more than the job done are available, as is a friendly work atmosphere. Since the firm is dedicated to an employee-stock ownership arrangement, our future is in our hands, providing valuable incentive to do your best.

    Cons

    Nothing for the Con column.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please continue to be innovative and technology-minded. Your best-in-class approach yields quarterly employee bonuses, always something to incentise solid performance.

    Pros

    You are able to make significant contributions regardless of your title, role or tenure. A firm that is continually looking to improve its value proposition to its clients and its staff.

    Cons

    The firm is very nimble so sometimes the speed at which change occurs may be disruptive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have your finger on the pulse of the market, keep doing what your doing.

    Pros

    Array was a great place to work, people are trusted to make decisions and you aren't second guessed. Management was always ready to help out if a project need them or if you just need help.

    Cons

    Architecture as an industry doesn't pay great, I wish that Array could be different and value those that do a great job and reward them.

    Upper management is in it for themselves, not supportive of staff or causes.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are genuine and friendly. I also learned a decent amount from my time here. People at your level are kind and supportive.

    Cons

    There is a large and growing disconnect between management and staff. The management does not seem to take into account what the staff has been hired to do and instead micromanages.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at yourselves and the people around you. Let your staff play to their strengths, since that is the reason you hired them. Be more supportive in general.

    Small (minded) company

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Learned a variety of computer software programs.

    Cons

    All offices managed by the headquarter location, which resulted in micromanagement and limited ability for growth. Difficult to make any positive changes because of the hierarchy. Minimal supervisory support and no human resource department. Very low salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a disconnect between the executives located at the headquarters and the executives at other offices. The company's mission, values, culture, policies and vision should be consistent throughout offices.

    While our office hours are driven by the demands and needs of our clients and projects, Array does offer "summer hours" to all our staff from May through September.

    Pros

    Array is a large office with a small office mentality. There are a lot of kind, professional and talented people who make Array a great place to work.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, Array is located far from downtown Philadelphia. Additionally, Array is a bit hierarchical. This leads to pros like specialization and cons like company wide strata.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your approach to BIM and IPD is prescient. Array is business oriented, and this can be good, but sometimes it creates a stale atmosphere.
